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.
