While Young Thug may be one of the hottest new rappers around — dropping hits after hits and recieving co-signs by heavyweights like Kanye West, Birdman & T.I., not much is known about this flamboyantly hood rapper. While watching his videos or listening to his songs, one could only wonder how he could appear so enigmatic and “otherworldly,” both in and out of the booth.

Took his *ss out. P*ssy-*ss n*gga.” Four years following the incident he went to juvenile-detention program. “Seven in the morning to six in the afternoon. No windows or nothing, like a real jail.
