Hypocritical Young Thug Slams Future For Releasing Too Much "BS Music"

Young Thug tells Future to "Slow down dropping all that BS music," apparently doesn't realize how much music he releases himself.

Future drops new projects like I eat burritos - weekly, sometimes more.

Just two weeks after Future released his Purple Reign project, music's second most popular fake drug addict tweeted a "New Project Alert" and re-upped on Twitter just minutes ago to reveal that the project would be dropping at midnight tonight. 

Goddamn. The sheer volume of music that Future's released over the last year is rivalling even Lil Wayne at his most prolific, we recently heard reports that he has nine projects finished and ready to roll, and it's hard to argue that flooding the (digital) streets hasn't been good for Future's career. Over the last year he's vaulted from a relatively popular rapper to a just straight up popular rapper. But at what point does all that quantity begin to water down the quality? 

Mr. Young Thug, perhaphs you'd like to weigh in: 

Well...if anyone knows what it's like to release an avalanche of new music it's Thugger, who reportedly has ten albums finished and being slated for release himself. That isn't the pot calling the kettle black, that's the pot saying to another pot, "Hey, I recognize you, you're a pot." Methinks perhaphs Thug's critique isn't so much about music and culture as it is some good old fashioned beef-starting.

After all, shortly after that previous tweet Thug would write, "I don't sneak diss. Everybody no" - and then almost immediately delete that tweet in an apparent fit of irony. Good thing the internet never forgets.

So it appears that the battle lines between Young Thug and Future are being drawn, with Metro Boomin caught in the middle. But no matter what side you fall on, I think there's one thing we can all agree on.

There's way too much fucking music being released right now. Bam, I'm out.

UPDATE: Young Thugs is clearly trying to pick a fight with Future, who has yet to clearly respond.
