In other Young Thug-related news, the 25-year-old JEFFREY musician recently cracked XXL's 50 Best Hip-Hop Projects of 2016. Yesterday (Dec. 18), Thug and 21 Savage previewed new music, which they've been working on together while on tour.
On the snippet, 21 adds more fuel to the Tyga/Kylie Jenner situation, spitting, “It’s a painting,. half a ticket/It’s a Kylie, might be Jenner/It’s a jet, it’s a check/It’s a savage, now she wet/It’s a Pyrex, I got crack/It’s a cooling system, it’s a tech/If your bitch spend the night it’s a set/If your watch ain’t cost 100 it ain’t shit."
Additionally, Thugger spoke with Paper Magazine about how he wants to help fight poverty in his hometown of ATL. “I think people only care about what affects them. It’s selfish, but I think it’s the truth,” he says. “If they are not affected by being poor, they don’t typically fight for it. I remember not having anything, so I want to always stay involved. Whenever I go back to my side of town – Cleveland Ave – I know I have to bring money, because there’ll be friends or cousins or people I knew from 6th grade who are going to ask me for money. My fiancée always says I look like Santa Claus, because I’m just giving everyone something.”
