“Old English,” which was produced by Salva and Nick Hook, relies heavily on Thugger’s adenoidal wheeze to drive its murky ode to malt liquor. Gibbs and Ferg, both recently off acclaimed full-lengths, also turn in nimble-tongued performances, but it’s Thug’s elastic vocalizations that steal the show.
This track is due out as part of Mass Appeal Vol. I, the label’s first compilation, on September 2. That comp will also feature contributions from Pusha T, Juicy J, Pimp C, YG (who recently released the Essential My Krazy Life), Mac Miller, Boldy James, Fashawn, Bishop Nehru, and more.
