‘Slime Language 2′ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart

  ‘Slime Language 2′ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart The star-studded ‘Slime Language 2′ project from Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life Records debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while new albums from Eric Church and Greta Van Fleet also bow in the top 10.Slime Language 2 was released on April 16 via Young Stoner Life/300. It’s the third No. 1 for the Young Stoner Life label, following Gunna’s Wunna in 2020 and label chief Young Thug’s So Much Fun in 2019.

The incident took place at an MTV Video Music Awards afterparty in New York City and has now been documented on the track “Let Go My Hand”.

The song was produced by DJ Dahi, Frank Dukes, Wu10, and Cole.

“I kept a tough demeanour on the surface but was mostly just pretendin’, and luckily my bluff was workin’ way more often than not,” Cole raps on the song. “My last scrap was with Puff Daddy, who would’ve thought it? I bought that n***a album in seventh grade and played it so much. You would’ve thought my favourite rapper was Puff, back then I ain’t know s**t, now I know too much.”

At the time, it was reported that Cole intervened after an intoxicated Diddy attempted to spill a drink on Kendrick Lamar because he was mad over the Compton rapper’s verse on “Control”, specifically the “King of New York” line. An argument reportedly ensued, which led to a scuffle involving Diddy, Cole, and their crews.

Cole’s manager Ibrahim Hamad took to Twitter to confirm that, following the incident, the North Carolina rapper was not kicked out of the party.

Sticky situation? Cole says spin rate drop due to mechanics .
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The pitches Gerrit Cole threw in his last start weren't rotating as much, and the New York Yankees ace said the spin rate dropoff was due to mechanical flaws — sidestepping a recent accusation that he cut back on tacky substances amid a Major League Baseball crackdown. “I attribute it to just not being as good or as sharp as I wanted to be. It’s as simple as that," Cole said Tuesday before the Yankees began a three-game series at Minnesota.
