It was once rumored to always be a race-to-the-top between Niaja emcees Davido and Wizkid.
Well, Wizkid’s got a number of chart topping international collabos and whether it’s in proof of their long lasting competition or not, Davido has only just also released another one of his international collabos and it’s already made it to be Record of the Week (ROTW).
Featuring Rae Ssremurd and Young Thug, this Sony signed star goes ham on the DJ Mustard produced beat worthy of the top position on any music chart, somegthing we already predict to happen.
Davido who has been in the country a number of times has had a few cross over hits before now, with artists from Africa like Mafikizolo and Diamond Platnumz as well American singer Tinashe.
The video to this brand new one, ‘Pere’ garnered over one million views in under 5 days and will now enjoy a week’s long airplay and bragging rights as HBR’s record of the week.
Young thug was a no-show at a New York concert last year and now he’s facing a $360,000 lawsuit from an NYC-based event organizer.
The suit, filed by Nicholas Fitts, claims that he and Thugger signed a contract worth $55,000 for Thug to play a concert at Sahlens Stadium in Rochester, New York. Fitts claims he lost $201,620 in ticket sales alone and that Young Thug “did not have a valid legal reason for his failure to perform.”
This is not the first time the rapper has failed to show up for something. He has previously failed (or showed up late) for interviews, press and even his own music video shoots.
Young Thug and his YSL company have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
Ralo and Thugger kick it with back-and-forth flows. “Young ni**a fly like propellers,” raps Thugga, while Ralo adds, “Young ni**a stacking up vegetables.”
Over Ricky Racks’ production, Lil Yachty delivers sharp spite for detractors. “I do commercials, I’m so controversial,” he raps. “Every time they see me, they hatin’ / They hate when I win, but they love when I sin / These ni**as gon’ wake the man that’s within.”
Although billed as a guest artist, Uzi Vert doesn’t have a verse on the track. Instead, he delivers ad-libs throughout.
“Young Thug is a real life gangster and he’s supported me since the beginning,” Ralo told Complex. “Him and I were in the studio and he introduced me to Lil Uzi and he started ad-libbing the hook and the song came together.
“I really wanted Lil Yachty on this song because I said something about him in an interview that was wrong,” Ralo added. “I apologized about it because I didn’t even know him at the time. Collaborating with guys like Thug and Yachty helped me to break into the blogs and mainstream media. I already had the streets locked.”
“Young Ni**a” is a single off Ralo’s forthcoming Famerican Gangster 2. Out February 12th, the project features Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Birdman, YFN Lucci, and Shy Glizzy.
By now you have either seen or heard about Young Thug’s $100,000 USD visual for “Wyclef Jean”. The music video that was released earlier this week lists the series of unfortunate events during the video shoot and highlights the fact that Jeffery never really steps foot on set.
Recently Noisey released a video they filmed while waiting for an interview with the Atlanta rapper that was supposed to take place on the “Wyclef Jean” music video set.
Noisey‘s video features interviews with those on set and captures just how the crew and cast spent their time waiting for Young Thug to arrive.
Young Thug’s “Wyclef Jean,” a track inspired by The Fugees member, is one of the standout tracks of Young Thug’s critically acclaimed JEFFERY project.
Today, the record’s music video finally surfaces. Directed by Pomp & Clout, the video cost $100,000 USD. Jeffery hardly showed up, due to a number of reasons including having his Instagram account hacked.
An altercation between Thugger’s camp and the cops even occured during shooting so the directors opted instead to use B-roll footage for the final video.
Young Thug just debuted a new merchandise collection via Twitter, which features items inspired by his Jeffery album cover and his HIHORSE’d Tour with 21 Savage.
Thugger has been making strong moves all year, and even released his mixtape-for-purchase, Jeffery, back in August.
As he wraps up 2016, he’s giving his fans some gift options for the holiday season and there are a lot of items to choose from.
The range is comprised of T-shirts, hoodies, ashtrays, lighters, and caps emblazoned with the dress cover, and additional pieces boasting illustrations of Thugger riding a horse and psychedelic colours.
The merchandise collection is available now online, Tees hiting for $35 and hoodies for $60.
Having started off 2016 with a bang; being chosen as a model for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show and landing a guest feature on Ye’s album, this could just be the best way to end this year.
The internet is always full of new and exciting challenges from extremly silly ones to come for charity to even some cool dance challenges like juju on the beat challenge.
Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Black Beattles’ has become the soundtrack for the Mannequin challenge, a group art project that’s has become the new craze and involves participants freezing in place.
The manequinn challenge is something that the hip hop artist, Lil Ronny MothaF, did for the song ‘Throw that a** in a circle‘ a whole two years ago but the internet has just now realized it and everyone is doing it including, Young Thug.
Gucci Mane hasn’t been a homebody since getting off house arrest. In his latest video for “Aggressive,” the Atlanta rapper features his famous friends; Meek Mill, Young Thug, 2 Chainz and Quavo from Migos.
The song comes from his album ‘Woptober’. He will also be dropping an album this holiday season dubbed ‘The Return of East Atlanta Santa’ which is due Dec. 12 via Atlantic Records.
He is just about to be the artist formally known as young thug. This is according to his label head Lyor Cohen, who announced that the artist will now be known by his new name: No, My Name Is Jeffery.
Lyor Cohen broke the news on the Rap Radar podcast, saying, “Young Thug is not going to be Young Thug anymore. His new name is going to be ‘No, My Name is Jeffery.’” Cohen did not offer any explanation for this but insisted that “it’s important”.
The name sounds super strange though, don’t you think?
Young Thug’s real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams, so just to be fair, ‘No, My Name is Jeffery’, is kind of close to resembling his real name. This comes just when the rapper is due to release his latest mixtape “Jeffrey” .
The artist had previously told GQ that if he ever changed his rap name, it’d be to Jeff the Rapper – his little niece’s name for him.
So who came up with the name? Just wondering coz it really sounds so ridiculous.
