About Gucci Mane & Young Thug
In March 2014, Gucci Mane teamed up with Young Thug for a joint mixtape titled Young Thugga Mane LaFlare.
"An equally notorious and beloved figure in the rap game, albeit more notorious as of late. Say what you will of him, but he is without question one of the most prolific rappers in the game, having released a staggering 41 mixtapes, 9 studio albums, 3 collaborative albums, a compilation and an EP throughout his 8-year career.
He's collaborated with the likes of E-40, Young Scooter, Waka Flocka Flame, Project Pat, Birdman, Rocko, Dj Paul, Wale, Rick Ross, Bow Wow, 8Ball, Future, Juicy J, Juvenile, Travis Porter, Marilyn Manson, Dj Drama, Meek Mill, The-Dream, Yo Gotti, Akon, Nelly, R. Kelly, Twista, Z-Ro, Soulja Boy, French Montana, Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, 2 Chainz, Young Buck, Killer Mike, Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida, Ludacris, Big Boi, Bun B, Cam’ron and more.
Unfortunately, recent developments in his life and career have not been positive. After a scandalous Twitter rant that led to the deterioration of his 107 Brick Squad Records label, he was arrested for illegal firearm and drug possession as well as threatening police officers, and has been in and out of jail and rehab - he’s currently incarcerated with a potential sentence of 10-20 years in prison for federal weapons charges. Despite this, he continues to drop new music, that being his latest studio album, The State vs. Radric Davis II: The Caged Bird."
On Young Thug:
"Among the up-and-coming rappers out of of ATL is Brick Squad affiliate and recent Cash Money signee Young Thug. He began his music career in 2010 and began opening eyes in 2011 and 2012 when he released his three part 'I Came From Nothing' mixtape series. His 2013 tape '1017 Thug' received great reviews from major music critics including Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.
Though just 21-years-old, he has collaborated with several notable rapper and producers including Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Flame, Metro Boomin, Young Scooter, Wale, A-Trak, Casino, Nicki Minaj, Rich Homie Quan, and others.
Young Thug's 2013 debut single 'Stoner' was remixed by the likes of Wale, Jim Jones, Iamsu!, and Jadakiss. Young Thug signed to Cash Money in 2013 and is also featured on Brick Squad’s upcoming album 'Big Money Talk'. He is known for making music fast and said he is making mixtapes with Chief Keef and Rich Homie Quan, so expect more than one project from Young Thug in 2014."
