Young Thug will no longer be going by the moniker that fans have grown to know and love him by. Instead, he’ll be taking it back to the basics and going by his government name…though there’s an added twist.
“Young Thug is not going to be Young Thug anymore,” music exec and Thugger’s label boss at 300 Entertainment, Lyor Cohen, said during his recent appearance on the Rap Radar podcast. “His new name is going to be ‘No My Name Is Jeffery.'”
That’s certainly…interesting. He expanded further:
“The reality is, when you see this commercial, you’re all going to understand what we do here at 300. Because it’s powerful images of what makes someone Young Thug and what the evolution and how someone is Jeffery. It’s a circular thing, it’s important. “No, My Name is Jeffery” is on it’s way. Please respect us to actually segue and utilize his name going forward because it’s important.”
