Nothing about Thug’s career has been conventional. Sticking to this, instead of hitting publications with emails or boring gift packages that review details of his upcoming project, Thugger decided to announce his upcoming project, Slime Language, via living snakes!
Beginning yesterday, various music mediums began receiving pre-named snakes that were accompanied with a pamphlet that disclosed the number of tracks and Slime Language’s featured artists. And while Thug’s love for snakes is known, he used this affection to take album promotion to new heights as it is still unknown whether the names of the snakes were randomly picked or a clever way of unveiling Slime Language’s tracklist.
And for those who think Thug is using these innocent animals with little regard for their lives, it should be noted that each reptile came with a care kit as well as a number to a local pet store in case the publication wanted to return the creature.
Check Out The Features And Reactions To The Snakes Below:
- “Lil Duke”
- “Lil Keed”
- “Lil Uzi Vert”
- “Tracy T”
fwiw, the promo materials included care instructions and a phone number for the pet store in case a recipient realized they just couldn't take care of a snake.
THAT SAID… yeah, still a wild gift to spring on anyone. Apparently, several other media orgs happily accepted. https://t.co/C0ZsRg5R64
