(Wednesday 28th April) – To coincide with Slime Language 2 debuting at No.1 on Billboard’s 200 Albums ChartYoung Thug and Young Stoner Life Records release the video for ‘Paid the Fine’ feat. Gunna, Lil Baby and YTB Trench, the second video taken from the groundbreaking album since its release earlier this month.  
On Sunday 25th April, Young Thug and Gunna visited Fulton County Jail, ATL, a facility that recently attracted local media attention for its extensive overcrowding with over 2900 incarcerated individuals being held there, more than 400 people over maximum capacity. Working with the district attorney’s office, lawyers, prosecutors and bond companies, Young Thug paid the bonds for a group of individuals, all of whom were being held on minor/petty offenses, and had not been able to afford the cost of release. Upon being reunited with their families, individuals and their loved ones were all given home-cooked meals and a chance to celebrate being back together again. 
The ‘Paid the Fine’ video documents this emotional process and broadcasts a strong message on the necessity of people being given second chances and a way out of the system. At the helm of Young Stoner Life RecordsThugger demonstrates the power in working hard and being successful, and the importance in giving back to the community once you’ve made it. With over 412,000 individuals being held in the USA who can’t afford to pay their bond, the ‘Paid the Fine’ video shines a light on the national issue through the lens of a local community, in hopes to raise awareness and encourage those who are able to help to do so. 
“This is where we are from. We just woke up and went to the jail with the lawyer and you know DA’s and the prosecutors, you know, the bonding companies and just got as many people as we can out…It feels so good to the point where you start feeling that’s why God put me here. He put me here to do this.” – Young Thug
Slime Language 2 has become the third No.1 album for Young Stoner Life Records,following Young Thug’s So Much Fun in 2019, and Gunna’s Wunna in 2020. Holding #1 song (‘Ski’) and album position on Apple Music on its day of release, with Young Thug trending as the #1 topic on Twitter, the album controlled 7 out of 10 of the Top 10 spots on Apple Music charts. In its first week, total album impressions reached over 2 billion, amassing over 140m streams in the US alone, and 190m globally. All artists featured on Slime Language 2 also charted in Apple Music’s Top 50 chart. 
Over the last three years, Young Stoner Life Records has continued to evolve into a familial powerhouse taking over the culture and the airwaves with ties both local to Atlanta and globally around the world. For them, family is deeper than rap, and it’s the unique characteristics of each member that makes them inimitable.
