On September 9, Young Thug announced that he would be dropping a new project called On the Rvn in two days. During what should have been his release celebration week, Thugger was hit with an arrest warrant related to eight felony charges from a September 2017 arrest. After turning himself in and bonding out, Young Thug got back on the grind. Two weeks after the initial release date tweet, Thugger finally delivered on his promise of a new tape for his fans. On the Rvn arrived at midnight on Monday (September 24), and as previously reported, the project features appearances from Jaden Smith, Elton John, and 6lack. The eclectic mix of features all share one common trait, they exist outside of the bubble that people would call “normal” or conformist.
Young Thug opted to keep things brief with On the Rvn, ending the new project after just six songs. Thugger has flooded the game with new music this year, some of it being released inadvertently via multiple leaks. With that in mind, it makes sense that he would choose to bless fans with a short tracklist, which keeps the demand higher than the supply.
