Auto-tune-loving Atlanta rappers Young Thug and Lil Yachty recently wrapped up a tour together at the Vic Theater in Chicago on May 25. It's the hometown of Chance the Rapper, whose new Coloring Book features both Thug and Yachty on the song "Mixtape" (Chance called Lil Yachty's verse his favorite verse on the album), but no luck on Chance coming to the show to perform that with them. Thug played plenty of his own stuff though, and did bring Lil Yachty on stage. Here's some of Journalist Without A Beat's review:
After the first few songs, Young Thug would ask if Chicago was ready to “turn up”. Of course Chicago was ready. Young Thug seemed to enjoy the Chicago crowd as they recited word for word on the track Slime Shit. The hour set consisted of Thug performing tracks from Barter 6, Slime Season 2 and his new project Slime Season 3. Thugger Thugger would also reach back in his catalog and perform his verse of T.I.’s About The Money.
The show came to an end when Thug performed the Rich Gang: Tha Tour classic, Lifestyle. This would then lead into the crowd favorite, Best Friend. During the last song, Thug brought out Lil yachty and both stage dived into the audience to close the final stop on the Hy!£UN35 Tour.
