UPDATE 8/27/16: Apple Music has updated Young Thug's most recent release. The title has been shortened from No, My Name is JEFFERY to just JEFFERY. Additionally, the ninth song on the project, which was once called "Pop Man," has been renamed "Kanye West." As Thugger explained in a recent Instagram post, all of the songs on JEFFERY are named after his idols.
See below for the original story.
Young Thug's hotly anticipated new mixtape No, My Name is JEFFERY is finally here. Clocking in at 10 tracks, the mixtape features Gucci Mane, Gunna, Quavo, Offset, Travi$ Scott, Young Scooter, Duke, and Wyclef Jean. Although originally a Young Thug song, many thought the bonus track, "Pick Up the Phone" was going to be on Travi$ Scott's album. Now, however it appears to officially be a track Thug's project.
No, My Name is JEFFERY drops one week after its originally announced release date. It serves as Thugger's third project of the year. He unleashed I'm Up back in February, and followed that up with the well-received Slime Season 3 in March. Now, he adds No, My Name is JEFFERY to the mix, marking another very prolific year for the Atlanta rapper.
The tape comes amidst claims from 300's Lyor Cohen that Thugger was officially changing his stage name to "No My Name is Jeffery." Thugger's sister spoke up about it on Twitter, noting that nothing was really changing. "Young thug real name is 'JEFFERY,'" she wrote. "He's not changing anything it has already been his." Thugger later clarified things, saying that the name change wasn't permanent. "I'm Jeffery for one fucking week. If I don’t sell a 100,000 copies," he said on Travi$ Scott's Beats 1 .Wav radio show. As it turned out, No, My Name is JEFFERY was the full title of the project.
Whatever his name, fans are sure to be excited about more new music from Thugger. Despite already releasing two other projects this year, he has another two in the works. He announced I Came From Nothing 4 back in April, and his long awaited debut album Hy!£UN35 is still supposedly on its way soon. The latter has suffered from numerous delays as mixtapes continue to find priority in his release schedule. Still, it's hard to complain about any new music.
While you wait for more info about his other projects, you can stream and download No, My Name is JEFFERY on iTunes and Apple Music here, or stream it below via Spotify.
A second version of "Floyd Mayweather" dropped. The original features Gunna and Gucci, but now Travi$ Scott has jumped on to add his own verse. Of course, this may be exactly the track and verse the pair discussed when Thugger stopped by Scott's .Wav radio show recently. Listen to the new version below.
Since the project's release, a lot of people had some funny takes on the cover, which features Young Thug wearing a dramatic, ruffly dress. If you were wondering, you can read up on the whole story behind the album art here.
