Early Life Story/History
Young Thug is also known as Jeffery Lamar Williams was born in Atlanta, Georgia on August 16, 1991. Having eleven children complicated his mother’s life immensely as she struggled to support them all.
He grew up in a rough neighborhood and began getting involved in crime, drugs, and gambling.
When he was in sixth grade, he was sent to juvenile detention for four years after breaking his teacher’s arm.
Afterward, he didn’t return to school and then began to get more involved in gambling with his brothers. At the age of seventeen, he became a father and discovered his love for rap music and realized that he no longer wanted to live in poverty.
Young Thug began his musical career before he reached his 20s, featuring on TruRoyal’s “She Can Go.” This prompted Young Thug to release numerous mixtapes between 2011 and 2012. These mixtapes became known as the I Came From Nothing series.
Prominent Atlanta-based rapper Gucci Mane took notice of Young Thug and signed him to the 1017 Brick Squad record label. After releasing more mixtapes with the support of Gucci Mane’s label, Young Thug created quite a buzz due to his original musical style. Many predicted that he would be one of the biggest new rappers.
During this time, Young Thug added to his notoriety by collaborating with artists such as Waka Flocka Flame and Travis Scott.
In 2014, Young Thug was the subject of many rumors, including reports that he’d been offered over $8 million to sign with Future’s record label. He also became affiliated with Birdman’s Cash Money Records, although it was later revealed that this was a management deal, and not a record label deal.
Young Thug remained loyal to 1017 Brick Squad for most of the year, but later signed with 300 Entertainment. The next few years saw Young Thug collaborating with major artists such as Kanye West, Chief Keef, and Rich Homie Quan.
By 2015, fans were begging for a real album – and not another mixtape. Young Thug originally planned to call his debut album Carter 6, in an apparent homage to Lil’ Wayne. However, Lil’ Wayne saw this as a copyright issue and told his fans to stop listening to Young Thung. In response, Young Thug announced that his album would be called Barter 6 instead. He then announced that the upcoming release would simply be another mixtape.
Later in 2015, there was still confusion about who exactly Young Thug had signed with, as he claimed that he had a deal with Atlantic Records. Over the next few years, a debut album continued to be teased, and at one point the title was revealed to be “HiTunes.” However, the album never materialized, and Young Thug continued to release further mixtapes.
One of the highlights of his career came in 2017 when he collaborated with Camila Cabello’s hit single “Havana.” The song peaked at number one on the Billboard Top 100, giving Young Thug his first number one hit.
He repeated this feat once again in 2018, as he co-wrote and provided background vocals for Childish Gambino’s “This Is America.” The song reached the number one spot once again.

In the wake of the 2020 coronavirus, Young Thug explained to radio host Big Boy how canceling shows and festivals costs artists on his level millions of dollars. He explained:”The money I get for shows, let’s say I get $500,000.
If I don’t do these 10 shows, that’s $5 million.”He further explained that he sort of loses double the money because he needs/wants to keep his expenses at the same level:”I might spend a million, two million just on this quarantine shit.
Like I got my mom and daddy, all these folks god damn. I’m like, ‘Y’all stay in the house.’ They like, ‘Yeah’. They get tired of the house every week, they want a penthouse, go to the hotel. That shit cost money and you don’t make the money off your shows.
However much money I lose on a show, that’s probably the same amount of money I lose spending my money.”
