Young Thug Honors Fallen Comrade in “King Troup” Video
Young Thug dips back into his I'm Up mixtape and films a visual for the tribute track "King Troup."
The song is a dedication to Thugger's late comrade Keith B. Troup who was shot and killed in Atlanta. In the video, YT and his squad, some of whom are wearing "King Troup" t-shirts, mob deep, causing a scene in a gas station and gas station parking lot. The next story board consists of the Atlanta rapper and his wifey flossing cash and diamonds while riding in a private jet. Elsewhere in the lively clip, the "Best Friend" MC gambles at a crap table.

He was recently announced as a Stadium performer at the Hot 97's 2016 Summer Jam along with Big Sean, Bryson Tiller, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Kid Ink, Pusha T and the G.O.O.D.
