On mine, I can’t stand when rappers change their monikers.
I wasn’t a fan when Killer Mike became “Mike Bigga.” I definitely don’t like when Puffy hopscotches around his aliases. I mean, I didn’t even like when Jay-Z became JAY Z.
So of course I’m not going to call Young Thug “Jeffery,” despite the fact his real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams. I’m well aware that this is only for the sake of promoting his mixtape Jeffery, which arrives August 26th. So, even though this clip has a preview of another song that will land on the project… yeah, nah, I’ll stick to calling him Young Thug.
