He was born in 1991 in Atlanta, Georgia and started his music career in 2011 with the release of his mixtapes I Came From Nothing 1, 2, and 3. He soon caught the attention of fellow Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane who eventually signed him to his label 1017 Brick Squad Records.

In 2014, his single “Stoner” hit #5 on the US Rap chart and #47 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Thugger later signed with Atlantic records after getting out of a bad deal with Gucci Mane’s label.
Thugger released three mixtapes from his Slime Season 1,2 and 3 which did very well on the US Charts and earned him a bunch of money and popularity.
Young Thug’s latest release Jefferey peaked at number eight on the Billboard 200. It was named among the best releases of the year by several publications.
Young Thug has also been on tour with Drake for the past couple months which is earning him a lot of income.
