Thug also performed a raucous, punk rap performance of latest single “Tick Tock.” For both songs, Blink 182 joined Thug on stage behind the kit.

Thug’s “Tick Tock” performance, with head-banging guitar and heroic drum fills, is reminiscent of when the rapper debuted the song during his NPR Tiny desk performance back in August.
Young Thug released Punk, his second studio album, on Friday, featuring a slew of features from the likes of Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Travis Scott, Future, Doja Cat, J Cole, and late rappers Juice Wrld and Mac Miller. Punk follows several popular releases for Thug including April’s Slime Language 2 and 2019’s So Much Fun, both of which topped the Rolling Stone 200 album chart.
