Pop music: Young Thug

So much of a rap depends on a voice’s ability to bend and shift words in unexpected ways. Young Thug, a provocative 23-year-old rapper from Atlanta, understands this better than any other recent newcomer. Influenced by Lil Wayne, Thug and his inventive, charming brand of language are like nothing else in rap today, and in this genre, that’s always been the point. 8 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Fillmore Silver Spring, 8656 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. $27.50. fillmoresilverspring.com. — WC
