Jeffrey Lamar Williams, who rose to fame under the name Young Thug, is an American rapper hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. He is one of the country’s most famous “Southern Rappers.”
Williams grew up in the same neighborhood as other famous rappers like Waka Flocka Flame, 2 Chainz, and Ludacris. At the age of 26, Young Thug currently has a net worth of $6 to 8 million.
His first mixtape, called “I Came from Nothing,” was released in a series throughout 2011 and 2012 and caught the attention of fellow Southern Rapper Gucci Mane. The latter then signed the former to his label, 1017 Brick Squad Records, in 2013.
In the same year, Young Thug subsequently released his fourth mixtape under a label, titled 1017 Thug. The mixtape was well-received by critics and fans of rap music alike, praising his original sound, which contrasted with his contemporaries. The album then appeared on multiple “Top Albums of 2013” charts in various music websites and publications.
The young upstart eventually released commercial singles, which were still well-received by the fans. Other rap artists created remixes of his music, to which he shared his disapproval.
In 2014, Young Thug was able to work with artist Kanye West who praised his ability to make songs so quickly. He kept on releasing more music, but Young Thug was the victim of a leak of some of his unreleased material.
This lead to him releasing more of his mixtapes, culminating in the release of the Billboard 200 chart-topper “Jeffrey.” The mixtape peaked at number 8 and was deemed as one of the best albums of the year by several music magazines and websites, including Rolling Stone magazine.
This helped cement his status as one of the best rappers of the generation, and has lead him to continuously produce new, exciting music for his loyal fans and critics. At the young age of 26, Young Thug has already accomplished so much in his career and is set to conquer and dominate the industry.
In his personal life, Young Thug is currently engaged to swimwear designer Jerrika Karlae. It is also noted that he already has six children with four different women. He had his first child when he was still 17 years old.
Due to this, Thug joined the #fightpovertyagain campaign by donating all proceeds of a sold-out show to Planned Parenthood. Young Thug shared that he was a teenage parent, and parenthood, whether planned or unplanned, was one of the most beautiful things to ever happen to him.
Thugger has accumulated the majority of his money from touring, merch, and record sales.
