young thug gets massive check for a show

Young Thug had decent success with his last album “So Much Fun” but he says he’s racking up over a million for a show. Thugger posted a photo wearing designer clothes in a lavish hotel lobby captioning it, “1.5 for a 45 min show #thankuGod.” It isn’t clear if this was for a one off gig or if this is his standard pricing but that works out to more than 33 thousand a minute for a Young Thug performance.

To put that number into perspective, newer hitmakers such as DaBaby and Megan Thee Stallion currently ask around $100k to $150k for a performance. More established rappers like Big Sean and Pitbull reportedly ask about $250k for a show.

Here’s a brief clip of Young Thug at this big paying show.


This makes us wonder what Young Thug is getting for features now. He recently hopped on a song with Casanova and Gunna called “So Drippy.”
