Young Thug Raps About Having an STD

This remix of "Controlla" is a keeper.

Published June 15, 2016

Young Thug was recently inspired by Drake’s “Controlla,” lending his talents for a remix that is already building a strong case to be considered one of his best singles to date.

The lyrical content touches on a subject that many rappers don’t often shine a light on — reflecting on one's first STD. Leave it to Young Thug to weave in such an embarrassing (and very real) experience into a track so casually.

“I’m on Cleveland like I’m Kyrie Irving / Same place I caught my first STD / I came from the bottom, you believe me? / And I made it to the top, now you can’t see me,” the rapper spits during his second verse. Alright, alright! 

The track, titled “No Wendy’s,” is full of lyrical gems, with Twice opening up the single, but that Kyrie Irving/STD line has us admittedly swiping through our keyboards in search of the fire emoji. 

Take a listen to Young Thug’s “Controlla” remix below.
