No, My Name Is Jeffery
Last month, Young Thug announced that, before the release of the long-awaited Hi-Tunes, he'd be dropping a mixtape that uses his first name -- Jeffery -- as its title. Jeffery -- which will now most certainly be a commercial release -- is now one of the most anticipated projects of the season.
Technically speaking, though, Jeffery will not be a Young Thug project. According to the boss of 300 Entertainment, Lyor Cohen, Thug is changing his moniker to "No, My Name Is Jeffery." On a recent episode of Travi$ Scott's ".Wav" radio show, however, Thug suggested that his stage name will simply be Jeffery (and not No, My Name Is...) for the first week upon the release of Jeffery. He'll then presumably become Young Thug again, unless he moves 100,000 copies Jeffery during that week, in which case Young Thug may forever become a character of the past.
Whether Jeffery will be Thug's third project of the year or the first of the artist known as Jeffery's career, it should be something special.
