GQ just did a big feature on Young Thug. In it, the author discovers Thugger may be the world’s strangest man, and possibly comes from another planet altogether.
It’s worth a read, if you’re a Thug fan. But here are some interesting revelations from the piece about Thug’s diet and his bank account:
He eats almost nothing. Says he does not like to eat, and goes for days without food. On the third of every month, a doctor shows up at his mansion near Buckhead and injects him with vitamins. … Thug drinks prescription cough syrup all day, takes Xanax, smokes marijuana, eats molly. Sometimes he does all of them at once. He rarely sleeps. A former friend said Thug would stay up for days, take lots of different kinds of drugs, then sleep for 24 to 48 hours.
Thug’s put out 76 solo tracks in the past two years. He’s at a spot now where he can make at least $50,000 for a verse on another rapper’s song, at least $50,000 for every appearance. Last year he did his first tour and sold out 17 nights.
Although Thug’s feminine dressing style contradicts his rap name, he apparently makes up for it with weaponry.
“You will never see bigger guns tucked into smaller pants,” GQ reports
