Young Thug / 21 Savage at Bomb Factory
Kelly Dearmore Recommends
Not unlike great barbecue, hip-hop showcases different flavors depending on where an artist hails from. Classic East Coast and West Coast rap can vary as widely as fatty Texas brisket and spicy dry-rubbed Memphis-style pork ribs. But between the coasts lies the Dirty South, where Atlanta is capital city and indie rapper Young Thug is following in the footsteps of southern pioneers Outkast and Goodie Mob. Born Jeffrey Williams, the fashionably daring Young Thug has released a series of brilliant mixtapes over the past few years showcasing unique vocal deliveries.
