Young Thug’s style can be as confusing to some fans as his lyrics are — but that’s part of what makes him unique.
The Atlanta rapper has never been scared to push boundaries by wearing dresses and exotic prints that are usually reserved for the fairer sex, and he really went all out during his new cover shoot for Dazed Magazine.
Thugger appears on the cover wearing a floral Gucci top, but he also posed in a Molly Goddard Tulle dress that’s sheer on the top, and features a tutu — yep, like a ballerina — on the bottom.
His sister and good manager, Amina, was not happy about that. She was quoted during the interview screaming, “Take it off! TAKE THE TUTU OFF, NOW!” He clearly didn’t take it off though.
This man takes his clothing seriously, even while he was on the road with Travi$ Scott.
“We played 29 shows, and I brought, like, 32 Balmains,” he explained. “I switch clothes every set. He don’t. That n—a wear the same shoes, boxers, pants, every f—kin’ day. I’m like, ’Bro. Hell no. I’m a man. I have a girl. I have kids. My girl notice.’”
Throughout the interview, we get a closer look at Thug’s personal life, his close relationship with his family, and his philosophy when it comes to recording music.
“I think as I go. I can’t remember 16 bars. Unless you write it, you can’t,” he explained.
“I just do it bar for bar. I did a song in eight minutes. I thought everybody could write songs that fast. But working with a lot of them, they don’t. Wayne and Drake, it takes them so long to do a song. I understand why, because they want it to be perfect. But I think I can do a perfect song in ten minutes. I did ’Danny Glover’ in eight minutes. ’Stoner’ took me almost an hour.”
And, he’s completely confident in his success.
“I always felt like I was gonna be the man,” he said. “I guess that’s why I became it. I always felt like I was gonna have money, even when I was young. If it’s something you want, you just keep going and strive for it. I always wanted this.”
