Earlier this month, Young Thug and his Young Stoner Life collective liberated the second installment of their Slime Language series, which sees 23 tracks and a wealth of assists from Travis Scott, Drake, Rowdy Rebel, Lil Uzi Vert, Coi Leray, Big Sean, Skepta, Future, Yung Bleu, Kid Cudi, Meek Mill, and loads more. Before fans had a chance to blink, a deluxe edition of Slime Language 2 surfaced with eight additional cuts and new collabs alongside Don Toliver, DaBaby, NAV, and Jim Jones, among others. Overall, the project has already proved to be a success — it landed at the top of the Billboard 200 thanks to 113,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release.
Looking to keep the momentum going, Thugger & Co. have recently unveiled a new visual from the project for Thug, Gunna, YTB Trench, and Lil Baby’s “Paid The Fine,” a Sean Momberger and Wheezy-produced effort that speaks to the hard work and dedication it took to reach their level of success:
“Half a million dollars on me, I feel it in my chromosomes, I don’t talk to that bitch, when we meet up, she know I’m only bone, lifetime, send it, I made millions without a mobile phone, two hundred thousand stacked up I could bought myself, you need a drone, tryna put my people on, put my heart in every song.../”
Directed by DrewFilmedIt, the accompanying visual begins with recent footage of Young Thug and Gunna paying bonds for 30 low-level offenders at Fulton County Jail. The clip continues that narrative, showing families reuniting and celebrating together — all thanks to the Atlanta collaborators’ goodwill for their community. Fellow peers like Bankroll Freddie can be spotted throughout as well.
