Young Thug Embraces His Inner Fashionista in Sheer Dress in Dazed Magazine [PHOTOS]
There goes Young Thug in a dress again. The Atlanta native is shocking the hip-hop world once more as he lands on the cover of Dazed magazine. While he sports a red lace Gucci sweater on the front, it's the photos inside of him sporting a dress that has social media talking.
Thugger goes nearly nude in a jacuzzi bubble bath for the photoshoot and looks like a ballerina as he dons a sheer Molly Goddard Tulle dress. One thing's for sure, the 23-year-old rapper makes it clear that he takes his outfits seriously, especially when his fiancee is around.
“Me and Travi$ Scott tour our s--- like a rodeo, so it isn’t about clothes,” says Thug. “We played 29 shows, and I brought, like, 32 Balmains. I switch clothes every set. He don’t. That n---- wear the same shoes, boxers, pants, every f---in' day. I’m like, ‘Bro. Hell no. I’m a man. I have a girl. I have kids. My girl notice.’”
The "Lifestyle" rhymer, who also wears plastic shirt that says, "Warning Explicit Beauty" on it, described his creative process and how he can make a hit in minutes unlike some of his collaborators.
“I can’t remember 16 bars. Unless you write it, you can’t. I just do it bar for bar. I did a song in eight minutes. I thought everybody could write songs that fast. But working with a lot of them, they don’t. Wayne and Drake, it takes them so long to do a song. I understand why, because they want it to be perfect. But I think I can do a perfect song in ten minutes. I did ‘Danny Glover’ in eight minutes. ‘Stoner’ took me almost an hour,” he admits.
Thug, who has six kids of his own, also spoke on his biggest supporters -- his very big family. “Six girls and five boys. I’m the youngest boy. It was hard at times, especially where we come from," he shares. "But it was amazing because a lot of people don’t have the immediate family we do. It was so much fun, you know?”
“I didn’t finish school. I did everything stupid. So when they hear metaphors and good lyrics, they think, ‘Wow. How did you know that? Why did you think like that?’ They’re kind of my biggest fans because they know me better. It can be amazing to them,” he continues.
And he doesn't plan on leaving his support system or hometown any time soon.
“I stayed in the ghetto,” he continues. “Then I stayed in condos, then I stayed in penthouses, and then I stayed in mansions. Why am I gonna move to LA or Miami?," said Young Thug. "Atlanta is the number one place to live. You live better, you eat better, the rides are better, vehicles is better deals. It’s better people. More mean people, but at my level you want it to be about business, so it’s perfect for me. I’ve got a condo in Miami but I don’t live in it. That s--- be rented out."
We're also introduced to Thug's mom, aka Mrs. Thug or Mama Duck, a woman who sports gold grills, wears a diamond "RICH GANG" necklace and names "OD" as her favorite song from her son.
And it seems she may have inadvertently inspired her son to be a rapper. “That boy used to go around and bang on them walls. I had a friend with a studio, so I would let him go there to keep him off the streets and out of trouble. Jeff and my other son would go to write songs and rap and put them on CDs," Mama Duck reveals.
And now it's paying off.
Young Thug's debut solo album, Hy!£UN35, will be out on Sept. 24.
