Jeffrey Lamar Williams, better known as Young Thug, defies categorization. He’s mercurial and eccentric with every aspect of his art, from vocals to fashion choices. After emerging on Atlanta’s rap scene with his 2011 mixtape series I Came From Nothing, he gained a spot on Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records roster. Thug’s 2014 singles, “Stoner” and “Danny Glover,” launched him into the mainstream while highlighting his strange knack for melodicism and often-warped pronunciation. He proved to be a true iconoclast with his 2016 album, Jeffery, the cover of which pictured him in an avant-garde, ruffled, periwinkle gown, and his 2017 country-tinged record, Beautiful Thugger Girls, further showcased his chameleonic charms.
