A-Trak and Young Thug have been recording together since 2013 and accumulating a stack of songs. Finally ready to start revealing this material, A-Trak chose “Ride For Me” for its jaw-dropping (and possibly jaw-breaking) vocal performance. You’ve never heard Young Thug like this. His voice is elastic, self-distorted, at times barely human or intelligible, and at other times familiar and bouncy. As a turntablist and sound manipulator, A-Trak was entranced by Thug’s shape-shifting. To round off the song, Trizzy brought in another close friend with an otherworldly voice, Atlanta’s own 24hrs, along with rising Fool’s Gold star Falcons on the production tip. “Ride For Me” is a speaker-busting rollercoaster ride that defies traditional song structure and will playlist your whole year.
