Rising Tennessee rapper YGTUT releases new single “Thinkin Bout” via Same Plate Entertainment. The new song will be part of his new album, In My Head, due June 9th which includes previously released singles “New Medallion” and “Dolla $igns.” Produced by Jared White, this new track highlights TUT’s compelling storytelling and honesty. Listen to “Thinkin Bout” HERE.
Here is what the artist had to say: ‘”Thinkin Bout” is about knowing when you’re dealing with a person that you can’t trust. It’s about thinking when people are really with you when they’re not. In this new album, I’m taking it up another taste level and bringing the message that it’s okay if you don’t have everything figured out.”
Born and raised in Chattanooga, TN, YGTUT is a son of a preacher and has been surrounded by music since he was young. The emerging rapper fuses genres like R&B, Soul etc. into his music and incorporates numerous live instruments into the production—the latter a reflection of his southern roots and the live music scene in Tennessee. In 2010, TUT co-founded the collective TheHouse with TDE’s Isaiah Rashad—a force putting Chattanooga on the musical map since, and that recently released their collective project, “The House Presents: The Set” earlier this year. TUT announced his arrival on the scene in 2015, via his critically acclaimed debut project, Preacher’s Son, receiving praise from Pitchfork, HYPEBEAST and more. That project was followed by the release of Four Two Three in 2017, his I.O.U. EP in 2019 and the singles “Bootleggers” and “Chattanooga Vendetta” in 2020. Most recently, TUT connected with Isaiah Rashad for the track “Chad” off Rashad’s new album, The House Is Burning, followed by “Dolla Signs” in December 2021.
