Young Thug is an ATLien
And still, the main engine in his life is his music, and the world loves it. 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. But more than that, Thug has become a kind of status symbol, an unadulterated modern version of the give-no-fucks rock star for people who don't care about the pop charts. All in ladies' Uggs.
