At midnight tonight, Young Thug will release his oft-delayed new mixtape, No, My Name Is Jeffery.

In advance of the tape's release, 300 Entertainment co-found Lyor Cohen, the man who advised Thugger to stop recording material in bulk and "abandoning records like orphans," took to Snapchat to preview the nine-track project.

When it was first announced that Thugger would be changing his name to Jeffery for the release of the tape, and considering the image transformation that has already taken place, Yoh questioned whether or not this meant a change in musical direction as well. Let me reassure you, Thug fans -- that isn't the case. Despite the temporary change in moniker, Thug's music remains completely unchanged. (Which, depending on your opinion of his music, is either amazing news or incredibly disappointing.)

Below is the final track list for Jeffery with the original snippet titles in parenthesis (thanks to Reddit) and each song linked to it's respective preview.

1. Wyclef (Fuck The Brakes)
2. Floyd Mayweather (Lil Bitch)
3. Swizz Beatz (Love)
4. Future Swag (Baby Mama)
5. RiRi (Work)
6. Guwop (Ya Digg)
7. Harambe (Stack It Up)
8. Webbie (Patek)
9. Popman (Wet Wet)

At the conclusion of his abbreviated, matrix-based listening session, Thugger offered thanks to "the riders that are good with artists putting out music that pushes the edges all over." Based solely on the above snippets it's hard to imagine the edges being worried about a relocation, but be sure to check back on Friday, when we publish our Cheat Code album review of No, My Name Is Jeffery.
