Pitchfork (Website) - "Boosie Badazz has a new lease on life and is releasing new music at a steady clip. THUG TALK is another hard memorandum on the turmoil of gangsta life."
Coming hot on the heels of the official album Out My Feelings (In My Past), this street release adds to the pile of 2016 LPs from Boosie Badazz, all of them worth a listen. Unlike others that spoke to the MC's battle with cancer, Thug Talk does just what it says on the tin, offering a series of tracks about street crime and drug dealing. Preaching isn't his thing, and yet the MC's honesty and cold, hard facts are deterrents set to banging beats. A posthumous Pimp C interview on the cut "Wake Up" underlines this view, while the streetwise MCs Webbie and Z-Ro are the sharp album's only guests. ~ David Jeffries
