We gave it a B
The most apt pupil to graduate from the Tupac Shakur School of Thug Life is back with another street ode. With Thug Matrimony: Married to the Streets, he’s working the same two angles as in previous efforts: drum-machine-backed, club-banging anthems jutted against 2 Live Crew-like lyrics. Still nasty, yes, but there’s also a measurable maturity, with Trick delivering didactic and empowering lines on cuts like ”Ain’t a Thug” and ”The Children’s Song.” Guess matrimony grows you up.
