Young Thug and his crew add eight more songs to Slime Language 2.
3. MOB TIES (REMIX)
Atlanta is heavily represented in “Mob Ties (Remix).”
“Mob Ties” features Young Thug, Unfoonk, 24Heavy, Future, and YTB Trench. While you may not know half of the names that I just mentioned, at the end of the day, I think everyone involved in the song hits us with some hood-emotional lyrics, powerful melodies, and solid flows. While I’m not a big fan of posse cuts with random folks, this one caught my attention.
2. SLAM THE DOOR
“Slam The Door” is smoother than my signature guacamole (Yes, Ratings Game Music sells guacamole now).
Why the f**k wasn’t “Slam The Door” on the original version of Slime Language 2? I can count at least ten songs that it is better than. Not only do I f**k with the song’s hypnotizing trap beat, but I also f**k with Gunna and Young Thug’s slick flows, reckless/braggadocios content, and debonair voices.
Why does it sound so tight to me when rappers try to sound like Jeffery from The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air?
Once you saw the tracklisting for this deluxe version of Slime Language 2, I’m sure the guest feature that stood out to you was DaBaby. The good news is this: The song that he is on, “Litty,” is hotter than Megan Fox during the mushy Transformer scenes.
Do you know what I think? DaBaby and Young Thug are cut from the same cloth; Thugger just sounds a lot wackier than DaBaby. In “Litty,” their chemistry is on point. Not only do they show off their fearless, rockstar, violent, and rebellious sides, but they also hit us with solid melodies, impressive flows, and animated deliveries. All in all, “Litty” is a lot of fun to listen to.

I didn’t expect this deluxe version of Slime Language 2 to be amazing. What I will tell you is that it is a great compliment to the original version of the album.
Do you know my biggest takeaway from this project? How compatible Young Thug is with other artists. In “Slam The Door,” he morphs into a dude that can go slime for slime with Gunna; in “Litty,” he morphs into a guy that can go dog for dog with DaBaby; and in “Mack Truck,” he morphs into a guy that can go gutter for gutter with Jim Jones. At this point, it would be a mistake to call Young Thug “one dimensional.”
At the end of the day, this deluxe version of Slime Language 2 is blah. Three of the four songs are album fillers, and “YESSIRSKII” isn’t a song that I take seriously at all.
Do you guys think that Slime Language 2 is better than Slime Language 1?
