I was scrolling through my SoundCloud feed when something peculiar caught my attention. The Treasury, a mysterious but undoubtedly talented producer, released a track that he did with current hip-hop superstar Young Thug. Yep, that’s right: this small time producer is doing pretty big things. The Treasury hasn’t put out a song in longer than I can remember; he deleted all of his old songs off of SoundCloud except for one (“Bae,” which is a gem that I highly recommend).
The new Young Thug leaked track, titled “Raw,” is smooth and melodic, which is uncharacteristic for the Atlanta rapper. As inaudible as ever, he sings/raps some wise words and money talk (as far as I can tell, at least). The Treasury’s beat is a beautiful mix of looping synths and moan samples, which works surprisingly well with Young Thug’s muffled crooning. Check it out above.
