Young Thug comes through with a new album titled Punk. The rapper announced his new project, Punk, which is set to be more “lyrical” than previous projects. He also dove a bit deeper into the meaning of the project’s title. “[Punk] means brave, not self centered, conscious. Very, very neglected, very misunderstood. Very patient, very authentic,” he said.
Young Thug talked the concept behind Punk, especially in comparison to So Much Fun. “So Much Fun is like nothing to be thought about. It’s only for fun purposes. The name of the album is directly what it means,” he explained. “The difference from that and Punk is Punk is me letting them in on my real life. Me letting them know all the situations I’ve been through. Opening up, letting the fans in, I feel like I never let ‘em.”
But the album itself, he said, can be compared to Tupac in a way. Not stylistically but because of the purity and honesty that he intends to deliver on this project. “It’s more like Tupac,” he said about the project. “I had conversations with Jay-Z and he told me, ‘We gotta learn how to continue what Pac had going. Pac was a teacher. Pac teaches.’ This album Punk that I’m going to put out soon is probably going to be the best album, because it really teaches you, gives you life situations, it’s teaching I’m human. I am you. I am him. It’s very verbal.”
