Young Thug (born Jeffrey Williams, 1992) is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.
After releasing his first three mixtapes “I Came From Nothing 1,” “I Came From Nothing 2” and “I Came From Nothing 3” between 2011 and 2012, Thug caught the attention of rapper Gucci Mane, who signed him to his label 1017 Brick Squad Records in 2013. Thug followed up with releasing his first mixtape under the label, “1017 Thug.”
He then released his debut single "Stoner,” which spawned a number of unofficial remixes by rappers, such as Wale, Jim Jones, Jadakiss, Iamsu! and Trick-Trick.
