Young Thug has been championing Kooly Bros for some time, and now he’s putting his own massive reputation and grammy-winning vocals where his mouth is and bolstering the fun that is the single “Drunk Mess”.
For all the chaos of the lyrical content, “Drunk Mess” is excellently executed and produced. The pop-rap song is melodic with a minimalistic hook and driving vocal force. The rhythm is contagious. Everything except the meaning is polished and crisp, providing a juxtaposition to what is unfolding on the screen.
The music video expands on the fun. Kooly Bros G Fresh and Sanders swing around Atlanta as if it were their own. They evoke the name of the song, making a mess of a convenience store with dancers backing them up. When the song pauses and Young Thug himself is called up, we realize that there is still one sober voice in the room. That is, until the party really begins.
“Drunk Mess” is an exciting taste of what is to come from the rise of Kooly Bros and another classic Young Thug performance to add to your list of faves.
