While Gucci Mane is serving a 39-month prison sentence for probation violation, his 1017 Label released the sequel to Young Thug's breakout project, 1017 Thug. Before we even heard the ten previously unreleased Thugger tracks, the first thing Twitter noticed was that the 1017 Thug 2 cover art bears a striking, nay, precise resemblance to an older, promotional photo of Wiz Khalifa:
What's going on here? Was this a tribute to Wiz? A hasty roll out fiasco? Is it photographic evidence of some brazen rapper identity scheme? Possibly. Wiz even tweeted about the incident.
Young Thug is actually Wiz Khalifa's body and Young Thugs Head. Thats what Young Thug has been this whole time.— We Dem Boyz (@wizkhalifa) July 11, 2014
After hearing this, we dug up photos of four other rappers who we suspect may have secretly been Young Thug all along as well. Stay woke people. Stay woke.
