    Despite all the collaborations on So Much Fun, the album is about Young Thug. He might not mystify as he did in the early stages of his career, when he was stumbling into new flows and deliveries at an inhuman pace, but now he’s able to wield the madness with ease, satisfying in many modes.

    So Much Fun is a free-spirited record that comes with heavy doses of ridiculousness, but it’s lovably silly, and is a welcome dose of light relief.

    Thugger has performed vocally like this before on Jeffrey, lyrically like this on Slime Season and emotionally like this on Beautiful Thugger Girls but not consistently have they all converged together like this, forging the ultimate Young Thug Voltron. Plus, this top-notch performance has been spread across such perfectly paced beats. Quite literally, the production on this album is just a blast.

    So Much Fun succeeds in its quest to highlight the success of Young Thug; almost all of the 19 tracks could stand alone as a strong demonstration of what Thug does best, but they also work together to create a cohesive project.

    The album's 19 tracks in 62 minutes are at odds with the keen curatorial eye the rapper's shown recently, especially when they're devoid of stylistic experiments like the country crooning of Beautiful Thugger Girls and firmly dedicated to hard Atlanta rap.

    Some classic records have been made in this mold; plenty of dull ones, too. So Much Fun is somewhere in the middle, with a handful of legitimately great songs, only a couple you may end up skipping, and none that sound like someone forgot to send them to the mastering engineer.

    You can’t examine Young Thug’s music too closely or think about it too carefully if you want to enjoy it, because the casual misogyny of throwing around “Pussy” as an insult reminds you he’s not exactly progressive. If you’re looking for bass to shake the concrete and singing so modulated as to nearly be R&B, tracks like “Jumped Out the Window” and “Boy Back” featuring NAV will definitely fit the bill.

In all honesty, if anyone listens toAlbum is probably a top 3 thug project, and i didn't truly believe that until my fifth or sixth listen. In all honesty, if anyone listens to this album on repeat they will quickly understand how successful thug was with simply making songs that slap - the goal of the album, and also the reason for its commercial succes Expand

The project has incredibly highAs a huge Young Thug fan, I was somewhat disappointed in his debut album as I had very high expectations. The project has incredibly high highs like "Just How It Is" and "Hot" but has lows in "Sup Mate" and MGK's feature on "Ecstasy." This album would have benefited if a few of these tracks had been excluded to make for an easier listen, as the album ends up dragging at the end. Expand

    Seriously who tf listen to Young Thug? I don't mean to shade him, the dude probably hardworking but I would never understand why people likeSeriously who tf listen to Young Thug? I don't mean to shade him, the dude probably hardworking but I would never understand why people like him. His rap is forgettable, I can't even hear the lyrics, don't even get me started with the meaning behind the songs since there are none. This album is pretty much what every SoundCloud rappers, it's like a compilation of mixtapes. Crazy that people be praising these type of rappers who only rap over generic and oversaturated ass beats. Doesn't take much musical talent to be a rapper, just good marketing skills and flexing like dumbass. Expand
