Mirror on the wall, here we are again Through my rise and fall, you’ve been my only friend You told me that they can understand the man I am So why are we here talking to each other again I see the truth in your lies I see nobody by your side But I’m with you when you’re all alone And you correct me when I’m looking wrong I see that guilt beneath the shame I see your soul through your window pane I see the scars that remain I see Wayne, I’m looking’ at the.
In an interview with KIDS FM, Ariana called Weezy’s bars “one of my favorite verses of his ever,” adding, “It feels like old school Lil Wayne.” Due May 20, Dangerous Woman also features collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Future, and Macy Gray.

That would be the concept of “Town Tunes,” a little melody that plays during certain moments in the game, which you end up hearing quite a bit as a result. To do this, you need to upgrade Residential Services and talk to Isabelle who will give you the option to change your Town Tune.
I am once again turning to Animal Crossing YouTuber Nerd Attack who also did a great video for QR codes for items and clothing. There are iconic TV and movie themes like Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Avengers and The Witcher (toss a coin to your Tom Nook).
It’s the perfect game for the moment, and amplified by just how much toucan customize in the virtual world, Town Tunes include. Tyler, the Creator has been banned from the UK by home secretary Theresa May, apparently because he “made statements that may foster hatred, which might lead to intercommunity violence in the UK”.
Meanwhile, Young Thug was gliding across the border on the Eurostar from Paris, without so much as a pat-down. Whereas Tyler is a geeky rapper who has never been charged with a serious crime in his life, Young Thug had his home raided in July after he allegedly threatened to kill a mall security guard in Georgia.
During the raid, police found guns, cocaine and marijuana, and he was hit with three counts of felony arms possession. That all happened on the same day an indictment was issued claiming that Thug, along with his label boss at Cash Money Records, Bird man, conspired to have Thug’s hero and mentor Lil Wayne murdered (a charge he strenuously denies).
Rumors about his sexuality abound, but Thug says he is neither gay nor straight. You might expect this seeming disjunction to influence his music, but his lyrics rarely ponder the realities of his complex existence, instead portraying a bombastic and often surreal version of his life.
His latest mixtape, Slime Season, presents an almost sci-fi version of rap excess. He talks about his own beauty (“I’m a fucking’ stunned, ass big, Hummer”) and outlandish personality (“I’m an earthling in disguise”) in a way no other rapper would.
He’s handed a cup of purple medicinal liquid in a polystyrene cup which is known in the hip-hop world as “lean”, a powerful codeine-based cocktail that is supposed to make you lethargic and slurry. Young Thug performs at Boston’s House of Blues.

One of 11 children, he spent much of his adolescence in juvenile detention, after breaking his middle-school teacher’s arm. When he left the program, he started recording, mostly in a wardrobe in a friend’s bedroom.
A few years later, both Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane, another of Thug’s heroes, tried to claim him as a protégé, with Gucci signing him to his record label and Wayne acting as a mentor. But it was the support of Bird man, the owner of Cash Money and one of the most powerful people in hip-hop, that has led many to believe Thug is being anointed as the genre’s next huge star.
When Bird man included Young Thug in his Rich Gang supergroup, it seemed as though he was creating a sequel to LilWayne’s Young Money label, which launched Nicki Minaj and Drake. Thug still admired Wayne and wanted to name his mixtape They Carter V, in tribute to his hero’s most famous series of albums.
Wayne wouldn’t allow it, so the name was changed to Barter 6 (because Bloods put the letter “B” in front of words beginning with C). Then, in July, both Young Thug and Bird man were named by Georgia prosecutors in a case against Thug’s tour manager, Jimmy “Peewee” Winfrey, who was charged with a shooting at Wayne’s tour bus in April.

Whatever the realities of these fractured relationships, in the space of such a short time, he’s gone from the mentee to the poster boy, his global stardom threatening to eclipse his heroes. Beyond the Atlanta hip-hop scene, he’s appeared on club dangers such as Juicy J and Nicki Minaj’s Low, and even Jamie xx’s In Color album, where Thug’s sing-song rap style is put to spectacular use on the dancehall-inflected I Know There’s Going to Be (Good Times).
Kanye told Thug he’s “like Bob Marley” and is desperate to make an album with the younger rapper. In his first TV performance, he wore brown leather trousers with a pink flag flying out the back, an effeminate take on his gang roots.
Since then, his dressing-up box has become more and more varied, and during New York Fashion Week in September, he starred in a Vogue video alongside a string of supermodels who danced to Good Times. It’s become a huge talking point, and he’s been subjected to homophobic comments on social media.
You got a nice girlfriend, you’re ugly, toucan ’t rap, you’re the hardest.” Is it important that hip-hop has looks other than the hyper-masculine stereotype? “Yeah,” agrees Thug, “Because you’re from Atlanta, Georgia, and you’re dressed like a fucking European.
There is a sense in which Young Thug’s main line of business is to confound expectations around rap, sexuality, criminality and art. If that’s his business, then he has become an impresario, using his music and wealth to push the limits of what a rapper can be.
