Young Thug has a simple message for all his haters. The Atlanta rapper went on social media to blow off criticism and accusations of being gay by declaring himself to be the richest artist in Atlanta.

"It is I, Jeffery. The one that get the most hate, and they say gay, but is also the richest in the A," Thugger said in the video, which you can see above.

It is not clear what inspired this specific declaration from Young Thug, but it may simply be that he finally got sick of being a frequent target of criticism. For years, Thugger has dealt with speculation about his sexuality due to his fashion choices. Many people continue to insist that he's gay despite his relationship with Jerrika Karlae.

Back on the music front, Young Thug is currently working on the follow-up to Rich Gang's acclaimed mixtape The Tour Part 1. Birdman revealed that he and Thugger have already completed more than 10 songs for the long awaited project.

“Me and Thug working on a part two right now,” Birdman said during an appearance on .WAV Radio. “That’s what we doing right now, so we looking to drop it probably whenever we say go. But we got a good, solid 10-12 [songs] that we really, really like. Part two gon’ be me and him.”

Thugger has also been staying on rap fans' minds thanks to a few new guest appearances. The "Pick Up the Phone" artist linked up with Juvenile for a record called "Red Sox" and contributed to Ralo's posse cut "Young Nigga."
