Young Thug – rapper from Atlanta

Young Thug (real name Jeffery Lamar Williams) was born on 16 August 1991 in Atlanta. He was the 10th child of 11 in the family. Jeffrey’s neighbors were such famous rappers as 2 Chainz, Waka Flocka Flame, as well as his childhood friend PeeWee Longway, who lived 3 blocks away.

In middle school, Jeffrey was jailed for 14 months for breaking his teacher’s hand.

Between 2011 and 2013, Williams, using the pseudonym Young Thug, released three mixtapes from the series I Came from Nothing. They caught the attention of the rapper Gucci Mane, who offered Williams a contract with his label Brick Squad Records. Soon, Young Thug released the first mixtape from the 1017 Thug series.

At the beginning of 2014, Williams presented his official debut single "Stoner". The song reached the 47th spot on Billboard Hot 100 and was rated gold by RIAA for selling over 500,000 copies. The musician became very popular. Many organizers were hoping to book Young Thug for their events. In July and August, Thug, Birdman, and Rich Homie Quan released a collective project called Rich Gang: Tha Tour Pt. 1. Soon he earned 3 BET Awards nominations but haven’t won any prizes.

In August, Williams presented another mixtape Jeffery, which managed to reach the 8th spot on Billboard 200. Many magazines, including Rolling Stone and Complex, called this album one of the best in 2016. In November, the rapper announced creating his own label, YSL Records.
