EDITORS’ NOTES

Young Nudy once said he identified with Chucky (as in, yes, the homicidal doll). In other words, don’t press play on the third installment of the Atlanta rapper’s SlimeBall series expecting sunshine and smiles: “Love seeing feelings get hurt,” he rasps on “Do That” in a voice that drips with emotion while delivering even the most cold-blooded lyrics. Most of SlimeBall 3 sounds like a haunted carnival—cue the eerie pan flutes—but the occasional moment of whimsy cuts through the darkness, as on “Sherbert,” a breezy summer jam whose beat could be a trapped-out ice-cream truck jingle.

TITLE TIME

About Young Nudy

Atlanta rapper Young Nudy came up as part of an immensely talented crop of rappers who included his cousins 21 Savage and Offset. Early on, the young rapper impressed producer Pi'erre Bourne, who would sneak Nudy into the studio off the clock to work on tracks for mixtapes. While his first video appeared online as early as 2014 for a song titled "Off the Head," it was his 2016 mixtape Slimeball that began to ignite his fame worldwide. He quickly followed up the next year with Slimeball 2, which featured appearances from Juicy J and Peso. Before 2017 was through, Young Nudy returned with his Nudy Land mixtape, featuring production from Richie Souf and Pi'erre Bourne as well as guest spots from Offset and Lil Yachty.
