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 is I Jeffery
The one that get the most hate
and they say gay
but is also the richest
in the A”
It isn’t clear what precipitated Thugga’s public declaration, but rumors that he is gay have been circulating for a few years 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.
