About Young Thug:
Young Thug defies categorization and is a true iconoclast. Emerging on Atlanta’s hip hop scene with his 2011 mixtape series, he launched into the mainstream with his knack for melodicism and unique vocal style. He is the CEO and founder of multi-platinum selling record label YOUNG STONER LIFE RECORDS with notable artists Gunna and Lil Keed. Thug recently reached his first #1 album and his highest-selling album with his latest release So Much Fun, and became the first hip hop artist to have three top 5 rap albums debut on the Billboard charts in 1 year. With over 1.5 billion streams in total consumption, inclusion in over 20 ‘Best Of 2019’ lists including Pitchfork, GQ, and Rolling Stone, the So Much Fun’s popularity and impact on culture is undeniable. The platinum single “The London” ft. J. Cole & Travis Scott was also nominated for a GRAMMY award for Best Rap/Sung Performance. In 2019, Thug was awarded with a GRAMMY for his work and songwriting on Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” – named Song of the Year. Young Thug’s influence has been impactful across all industries from his appearances in TV shows like Grown-ish and Scandal to syncs on HBO’s Euphoria and Donald Glover’s Atlanta to having his Jeffery album cover currently on display in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The New York Times coins Thug as “The most influential eccentric from Atlanta.”
