Young Thug Says He’s the Most Hated and Richest in Atlanta


Atlanta rapper, Young Thug, has been an ongoing target of homophobic accusations for years. Apparently, he felt the need to respond, and did via social media:

It isn’t clear what precipitated Thugga’s public declaration, but rumors that he is gay have been circulating since he said that he prefers wearing women’s jeans to men’s (among other things), in an interview.

The “Pick Up The Phone” artist is and has been in a relationship with Jerrika Karlae, but not everyone can walk and chew gum at the same time, apparently.

In other news, The Tour Part 2 mixtape (sequel to Rich Gang’s part 1 mixtape) is due for release, “…Whenever we say go,” according to Birdman. “Me and Thug got a solid 10-12 [songs] that we really like. Part two gon’ be me and him,” continued Birdman in a recent appearance on WAV Radio.

The Atlanta rapper has been staying relevant with recent features on Juvenile’s “Red Sox” record, Ralo’s posse cut “Young Nigga,” and the rumor mill.
