Music Review | Young Thug, Key Glock, Offset Jim, and KYLE

New Music

Young Thug – PUNK

Young Thug shares his highly-anticipated sophomore album, PUNK. Sonically, this project is a symbol of Thug’s constant evolution as an artist. His influence has spawned a generation of talent in music today. PUNK includes select features from Gunna, J. Cole, Future, Drake, Travis Scott, Doja Cat, Nate Ruess, and more. Earlier this year, Young Thug performed a string of singles from his long-awaited album during his Tiny Desk Concert episode, accompanied by a live band that really brought the music to life. The GRAMMY award-winning artist has reinvented the sound of popular music, leading the charge as a certified cultural tycoon.

Key Glock – ‘Da Truth’

On the 15th day of Glocktober, Key Glock delivers his latest single, “Da Truth.” Ahead of his upcoming Yellow Tape 2 project, Glock gives a crash course on shit talking over a piano-laced Pyrex Whippa beat. He’s flexed up, straight up out the trenches, and cutthroat (forreal). As evident by his cash-rich mentions and nonchalant flex, the Paper Route EMPIRE artist has a knack for crafting bars about lavish living. Glock’s truth is best credited to his affinity for money: all he knows is hustle.

Offset Jim – Rich Off The Pack

If trappin’ was a sport, consider Offset Jim a professional. Oakland’s finest shares his new album, Rich Off The Pack. Detailed oriented and methodical in his approach, Jim finds hidden pockets in instrumentals that champion his money-getting flow. His words give nuance to hustling, revealing the intricate details of life in the streets. The project features appearances by Kenny Beats, Babyface Ray, EST Gee, Aitch, and Play Runners Association rapper ALLBLACK. Jim’s slick-talking is art in itself, intertwining lingo with lifestyle in a way that commands respect.

KYLE – ‘Sunday’

KYLE (SuperDuperKyle) releases new video single – ‘Sunday’ – ahead of his forthcoming album, It’s Not So Bad. Influenced by the legendary Craig David, KYLE’s latest effort is a rework of the 2000’s hit, ‘7 Days.’ The video finds KYLE at his most vulnerable, filled with love for a mystery woman that he met through a friend. Before closing out his therapy session and checking back into reality, the infatuated crooner revisits a night of romance that’s forever embedded in his memory.
