The rapper famously wore a dress for a Calvin Klein campaign, which he framed as a comment about the evolution of masculinity in hip-hop.

“In my world, of course, it don’t matter. You could be a gangster with a dress. Or you could be a gangster with baggy pants. I don’t feel like it’s no such thing as gender,” Young Thug says in a video for the campaign.

Young Thug also released the following preview video for the mixtape.
You can listen to the mixtape below, via Apple Music.
The Twitter reaction was swift and positive, with fans comparing him to anime, Mortal Kombat characters, and Disney princesses.
