Young Thug Named The Real Life Gangstalicious

Young Thug’s sexual orientation has been one of fascination to both his fans and detractors for quite some time. Thug, born Jeffrey Williams, habitually, and with a supreme sense of I-don’t-give-a-f**kness, indulges in behavior that many in the hip-hop community have seen fit to deem “sus.” For example, he has a fondness for calling his closest friends “hubby,” and also recently shared that around 90 percent of his wardrobe is comprised of women’s clothing. Of course none of these things are indicative of Thug’s sexuality or gender identity, and by his own admission, there should be no question that he identifies as a heterosexual male. Nevertheless, his gratuitous displays of affection towards his male friends, and unfettered love of blouses and skinny jeans, have managed to generate substantial dispute.

 Last week, producers London on da Track and Beatmonster Marc, who are affiliates of Thug, added fuel to the fire when they suddenly found themselves embroiled in a gay porn scandal. During a studio session that allegedly included Thug and rappers Kid Ink and Tyga, Marc posted an Instagram video intended to showcase the crew hard at work. The innocent recording quickly attracted the biting commentary of idle twitter fingers when a few keen eyes noticed what appeared to be a bit of male-on-male action taking place on an oversized television screen.

The conclusion many jumped to was that the group had been participating in some sort of group Netflix and chill scenario that had somehow turned 50 shades of homoerotic. Marc quickly refuted the claims, stating they had simply been watching Game of Thrones, which to be fair, has been known to feature its fair share of same-sex loving.

However, given the curiosity surrounding Young Thug’s sexuality, some took the incident as confirmation that Thug was indeed hiding his true preferences. Even if he is, that is of course his right and prerogative. However, that is only one possibility. Another is that Young Thug is simply so comfortable being Young Thug that heteronormative gender distinctions mean nothing to him.
It all combines to make Young Thug something of an anomaly to many. In the same way Riley was forced to reevaluate his perceptions of masculinity and its role in hip-hop, those who come into contact with Young Thug often subconsciously or consciously do the same. With each new outfit or Instagram post, Thug manages to incite debate around what is acceptable as a man, and as a hip-hop artist; he’s also unintentionally (or intentionally) made people question what these supposed acceptable patterns of behavior even have to do with an artist’s ability to make music (nothing, really). And despite, or maybe because of his non-conformist attitude, Thug is successful.

Seeing Thug blur and at times flat out erase the lines of what many perceive as appropriate masculine behavior, and in turn seeing the confusion it causes, is like watching an episode of the The Boondocks play out in reality. But instead of desperately clinging to the status quo in order hide a secret like Gangstalicious, Thug gleefully flouts the status quo. The outcome is still the same in that both the ficitional Gangstalicious and the very real Young Thug cause people to question pre-conceieved notions about gender and sexuality.

Young Thug Comes Out Of The Closet


Every since Young Thug came out on the big screen, I always wondered if he was gay! Was he doing it for a check or for respect? Having six children doesn't necessarily mean you love sex, not according to Young Thug, who at the age of 25 has made mothers of four different women.

Young Thug Says Jay-Z Doesn’t Have 30 Hit Songs

 


Young Thug was talking with Gillie Da Kid on the latter’s ‎Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast and the Atlanta rapper proceeded to jump out the window, figuratively. While bragging that he had 30 songs that would make the crowd go crazy at his shows in arenas, he then proceeded to add that “Jay-Z ain’t got 30 songs like that.”


Now Thugger said that with the utmost confidence. But the look on Gillie’s face said it all. But to be clear, the Philly rapper turned host also diplomatically added, “He got a lot, though.”


The tone, or maybe his thoughts catching up with what he just said, led Thug to walk back that wild statement instantaneously.

Young Thug Wanted For Questioning

Former Young Thug collaborator Akbar V posted to Instagram over the weekend, with a video that allegedly shows the Jeffery rapper slapping her outside of an Atlanta nightclub. Now, it seems that the video made its way into the hands of law enforcement, as it was reported on Monday, March 6, that police are now trying to locate Thugger for questioning.

Officers actually did respond to a call about a verbal dispute in the parking lot of Palace nightclub early Sunday morning, a report obtained by TMZ confirms. Akbar V, whose given name is Valerie Raven, 27, has charged that the tiff was between herself and Young Thug's fiance Jerrika Karlae, but that at some point during the confrontation he interceded and slapped her in the face. While a number of witnesses are said to have remained to vouch for Akbar, Thug and Jerrika apparently fled prior to cops arriving.

Several women in the video can be overheard saying "he slapped her" and "she about to get paid." Meanwhile, the day after the incident, Jerrika took to social media with a live stream in which she refuted claims that Thug hit anybody, and a screenshot of her responding to a comment on the RapAlert Instagram page revealed her going into detail about how Akbar allegedly stood outside of their vehicle badgering her. "Thug didn't touch her he actually asked her nicely to move from his vehicle! And besides you so gangsta but you called the police on him knowing you was outside harassing us," Jerrika wrote.

Authorities have refrained from officially charging Young Thug with battery after reportedly seeing the video but finding no evidence that he struck his female counterpart. Still, they are asking that he come forth to give his account of what happened during the altercation.

Young Thug Charged With Multiple Felonies

Young Thug
Young Thug has been charged with eight felonies stemming from an arrest in Brookhaven, Georgia almost exactly a year ago. The news, first reported by TMZ today (Sept. 6), citing court documents viewed by XXL, show that Thug has been hit with some serious charges stemming from a drug and weapons arrest last September.

DeKalb County court records show that Thugger is facing charges of possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He's also charged with two counts of codeine possession and possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam (Xanax) and a firearm.

Young Thug Arrested for Gun Possession

Police pulled Thugger over on Sept. 26, 2017 because the front windows of his car were illegally tinted. They then reportedly discovered 2.5 ounces of marijuana (a felony weight), a bevy of other drugs and $50,000 in cash.

Thug is due in court for his arraignment for the eight felonies on Oct. 9.

This certainly isn't the Atlanta rapper's first run-in with the law. He was recently arrested at  Dave & Busters in Los Angeles during the listening party for his most recent project, Slime Language. Despite the arrest, the compilation mixtape still debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart.

Young Thug Changes Album Title

I still lost all respect for +Young Thugga only due to the fact of whats going on with +Birdman and +Lil Wayne. Young Thug has renamed his upcoming album to the Barter 6. In addition to switching the title, Thugga took to Instagram to announce that his first show, following the album’s release, will be in Hollygrove, Louisiana.

Young Thug is referring to the same Hollygrove neighborhood in New Orleans, Lil Wayne and Mack Maine grew up in. “YSL Carter 6 coming out Friday. First show, New Orleans, Hollygrove fuck nigga, meet me there, better yet beat me there,” Thug says in a new Instagram video, as two men stand behind him waving firearms. Just a few days later, Thug uploaded a video to Instagram that features various clips of him performing while a woman narrates what seems to be shots at Wayne and his imprint.

The “New Atlanta” rapper has been using his Instagram account to fuel his feud with Lil Wayne.After Wayne urged fans to “stop listening to songs of niggas who pose naked on their motherfucking album covers,” Thug responded by saying, “I understand that Lil Wayne is frustrated about his career and I feel him on that, but this is my idol. I would never in my life swap words with him or beef with him about nothing. This is a person that I look up to. Ha Ha.”

Did Birdman And Young Thug Really Try To Kill Lil Wayne?

Lil Wayne
The Cobb County District Attorney’s office said Friday it will decide in the next couple of weeks whether to charge an Atlanta rapper and a record executive as co-conspirators in the 2015 shooting of Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter’s tour bus.

Prosecutors claim Jimmy “Peewee Roscoe” Winfrey shot up the bus on I-285 after a concert as a way to gain status in a gang.

One theory they initially floated was that Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Jeffrey “Young Thug” Williams put him up to it.

The Georgia Supreme Court overturned Winfrey’s conviction last year after ruling the Cobb County judge improperly coerced him into taking a plea deal and accepting a 10-year prison sentence by threatening he would get more time if a jury convicted him in his court.

On Thursday, the Court of Appeals remanded the case back to Cobb County.

“Mr. Winfrey always denied being the shooter of the bus,” Manny Arora, who represented Winfrey in his first trial, told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik.

The driver of the bus, Alvin Lewis, is suing Winfrey, Birdman and Young Thug, alleging they conspired in the shooting that caused him pain and suffering.

In a civil court filing this week, Lewis’ attorney, Jeff Gewirtz, included pieces of evidence from the criminal case that he argues point to that conspiracy.

Among the documents obtained by Petchenik, phone records that the lawsuit said shows Young Thug called Winfrey eight times in the 12 minutes leading up to the shooting.

Petchenik also obtained a jailhouse phone call referenced in the lawsuit. In it, Bryan “Birdman” Williams is talking to Winfrey.

“Time for you to come out here and get your money,” he can be heard telling Winfrey. “You did everything you could do boss ... it’s eye-opening. (It's) strictly business, man.”

Arora told Petchenik he doesn’t buy the conspiracy argument.

“The musician that was the intended target has never once said, 'these guys did it' or 'there was a beef,'” Arora said. “He’s actually been pretty silent on this whole issue.”

Arora said he believes the civil suit is a money grab.

“This is just a bus driver looking to get paid and they need a deep pocket so if you connect Mr. Winfrey to other musicians or executives, that makes it a viable case for them,” he said.

Young Thug Being Sued

A California limo service claims Young Thug stiffed them on the bill and they want him to pay up. The company is now suing for the full amount of $18,676.

Hollywood Stars Limousines has filed a lawsuit against the Atlanta rapper for allegedly failing to pay a $18,676 bill, according to TMZ.  In the court docs, the company claims they chauffeured Thugger and his crew around for a total of 11 times during the summer, and he still hasn't paid his bill despite them giving him "plenty of time" to do so; he instead refused to hand over the money.

The news of the suit comes just a week after Young Thug was arrested at an Atlanta mall after an officer recognized him and remembered he missed a court date for his car's tinted windows.  He was later released on $500 bond and posted a since-deleted Instagram video in which he claimed to be “bigger than the law.”
