Young Thug

United States

YOUNG THUG is one of the most prolific recording artists of the moment, bolstered by a seriously impressive back catalogue of music. Thug’s consistent output over the past 6 years includes various mix tapes, a trilogy called Slime Season, and the critically acclaimed Barter 6. After knocking out collabs with musical heavyweights Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, and Laneway alumni Jamie xx, Young Thug returned this year with a new full body of work titled JEFFREY. The album, with huge singles ‘Pick Up the Phone’ (92 million streams) and ‘Wyclef Jean’, showcases Thug’s ever-evolving, unpredictable style inspired by gender, identity, fashion, and Elton John. JEFFREY is “daring and chameleonic” (Pitchfork) and is finishing high up on the best album lists of 2016.
