“Ride For Me” is an elastic, absurd, and addictive single.
Who’s got a voice like Young Thug? Answer: no one. Fool’s Gold Records founder and producer A-Trak has been working with and taken by Thugger’s voice since they began recording together in 2013. Tapping Falcons for additional production and bringing on Atlanta’s 24hrs to temper the track, “Ride For Me” is an elastic, absurd, and addictive single.
There are points on “Ride For Me” where Young Thug sounds less human and more like a jerry-rigged MPC come to life. A-Trak provides a booming sonic playground for Thugger to perform his vocal shape-shifting. 24hrs does the important work of bringing us back to earth, before Young Thug once again launches the track into another plane.
