SOS Fest Artist Spotlight: Young Thug

Written by on November 6, 2016

In a short amount of time, Young Thug has managed to make a lasting impact on hip-hop.

In 2014, Young Thug released “Stoner,” the single that would launch his career. Since then, he’s gone on to record gold and platinum selling hits like “Lifestyle” and “Pick Up the Phone” with some of hip-hop’s biggest names.

Young Thug’s staccato raps and garbled lyrics have received both praise and criticism, but the rapper’s next level work ethic can’t be denied.

This year alone, Young Thug has released three mixtapes and is currently touring to support his projects. This weekend, Young Thug will take the stage at the Sound on Sound music festival.

Sound on Sound Fest will run November 4-6 at Sherwood Forest in McDade, TX. Purchase passes here.

Keep up with Young Thug on Twitter and Instagram. Jeffery is available on Apple Music and Google Play.
