Young Thug is on the latest cover of Dazed magazine for the Autumn 2015 issue. What’s been drawing quite a reaction from Twitter after the cover dropped this morning was his choice of clothing.
Just like we've seen before when he was wearing leopard-print dresses and miniskirts, Thug is rocking a Gucci dress, which doesn’t seem that shocking when the magazine names him “eccentric-in-chief.”
In the story, Thug is photographed wearing a sheer dress. This actually made his team kind of upset, according to an excerpt from the piece:
“Take it off!” a woman’s scream announces, bouncing off the mansion’s marble walls. It’s Amina, Thug’s sister and day-to-day manager, alarmed at the sight of her sibling in a grey tulle dress with tutu skirt by Molly Goddard.“TAKE THE TUTU OFF, NOW!” Thug shrugs – he’s already posed for the shot. It’s a rare disagreement between the rapper and his team, but one that neatly illustrates the crossroads moment his career is at."
We learn about the ins and outs of Thugger’s life, his relationship with his family, and the thought process behind his music. For example, his two major hits, “Danny Glover” and “Stoner,” were written very fast. In his mind, he can write songs so well that they come out perfect every time.
“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.”
