Young Thug became an overnight star when the well-known rapper Gucci Mane signed him to his record label 1017 Brick Squad. Known for his signature distinctive fashion style and vocal prowess, he is widely regarded for ‘departing from traditional rap lyricism and sometimes intelligible meaning.’ ‘Thug uses this multiplicative vocal delivery to his advantage: where another rapper might lapse into repetition, he finds a new way to distress and warp his tone, to burrow resourcefully into rhythmic cracks and crevices.’ The ‘Stoner’ (2014) rapper gained wider fame with his collaborations with the famous rappers Travis Scott, Birdman, Lil Baby, Gucci Mane, Bankroll Madia, and many more.
