When Young Thug lends his name to your project, it's going to raise hype - and the stakes.

The simple truth is, Doe Boy isn't quite able to heft a full project on his charm alone, at least not yet. That doesn't mean 88 Birdz is without highlights (beyond its absurdly, stupidly wondrous cover art, pictured above).

TM88 shows and proves throughout much of the tape, but he fully locks in for the eerie glide of 'Slide', with the song truly igniting as perfectly selected guest Juicy J barrels in for a showy, characteristically commanding and scene-stealing verse.

Even on a tape boasting the likes of Future and Thug himself, the Three 6 Mafia OG emerges triumphant. Bump this little gem on a slow Thursday.

88 Birdz is out now.
