Lil Wayne & Young Thug: A Complete History Sep 7, 2016 at 08:20pm
Young Thug has always cited Lil Wayne as his hero, but it hasn't stopped things from getting pretty weird between the two at times.

Things have certainly cooled down over the last little while, but it's been a wild ride, one that we've attempted to draw up in a timeline for you.

In the sprawling Chicago hip hop scene of today, perhaps no rapper has more artistic range than 22-year-old Dreezy. She first began to grow a significant following after she released her incomparable "Chiraq" remix in spring 2014. It's hard to believe that that song, in which she snarls like a wolverine, was made by the same person who would release the gentle R&B-pop hybrid "Body" with Jeremih 21 months later.
