01. “Danny Glover”

“Danny Glover” is possibly the greatest example Young Thug has given us of his unorthodox work ethic, seeing as the song is one of his most popular and memorable tracks and that it took all of eight minutes to craft. A brash run-through of the many ways in which he’s stunting (“I just bought a Bentley, and a bitch came with it”), “Danny Glover” is such an overwhelmingly confident track from an artist who was relatively new to the game. It may not be evident on first listen, but this song posits Young Thug as a new-school Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover’s Lethal Weapon character), ready to save the girl he loves. That’s a romance we can all get on board with, even if you think you’re getting too old for this shit.
