Announcing deals with everyone and their mother's label
First Brick Squad, then Freebandz, then Cash Money and 300-- Young Thug has been linked to more record labels in the last year than most rappers are in their lifetimes. First signed by Gucci Mane around the time he dropped 1017 Thug, Thugger then announced that he was singing to Future's imprint in January 2014, only to follow it up by linking up with Birdman and Lyor Cohen by the end of last year. To this day, it's still unclear what his exact status is.
Why is this controversial? For his fans, his aqueous affiliations make new music harder to come by, especially in its official, non-leaked form. For neutral onlookers, the fact that he's changing teams every week has the potential to make him look like a turncoat, especially in the midst of all of this Lil Wayne/Birdman fallout. And for his vast legions of haters, especially those who make music themselves, it must sting to see a guy who you consider to be "untalented" being courted by the titans of Southern rap.
