Young Thug Holds SXSW Funeral Procession to Announce ‘Slime Season 3′ Release Date

The mixtape will be out March 25 (probably?)

Nothing says “New mixtape on the way!” quite like lugging a casket through a jazz funeral on the streets of Austin. Young Thug has never been the most conventional of self-promoters, though, so he built hype for the release of his upcoming Slime Season 3 tape — expected earlier this year, when I’m Up was dropped instead — by scribbling its name and release date (next Friday, March 25) on a coffin carried down 6th street at SXSW by some very serious-looking pallbearers. Watch video of the bizarre procession, tweeted by Noisey.
