The Best Young Thug Songs That Aren’t “Stoner” or “Danny Glover”

For a while it seemed like Young Thug might never break through. Thug had built considerable buzz in Atlanta as an affiliate of Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad movement and through the release of his solid I Came from Nothing series, but it wasn’t until 1017 Thug that the buzz started to snowball.

1017 Thug appeared on numerous year-end lists, garnered critical acclaim, and flooded the blogosphere, but Thug’s status still paled in comparison to Atlanta compatriots like Migos and Que. With the release of “Danny Glover” and “Stoner,” things are starting to change.

Both Drake and Kanye (who's been making music with Thug) have been seen dancing to “Danny Glover,” and Nicki Minaj blessed the song with a verse for an official remix. Rappers like Wale and Jim Jones have taken their turn on “Stoner,” and Danny Brown called Young Thug his favorite rapper. Young Thug is staking his claim early in 2014, but many newcomers will be surprised to dig into his past work and realize that Thug has been making quality music for years.

With that in mind, here are the best Young Thug songs that aren't "Stoner" or "Danny Glover."
