Recently, Young Thug sat down with V magazine for their latest issue that "honors the leaders shaping popular culture and carrying it into the future." With his latest album Jeffery—and specifically, its artwork—Thug pushed the envelope by donning a dress created by Italian menswear designer Alessandro Trincone, certainly shaking up hip-hop's understanding of gender.
According to the rapper, he chose it because it reminded him of Mortal Kombat, but when pressed on what the message behind the artwork is, Thug tied it back to a notion that he's alluded to before: "Stop believing in genders."
Young Thug also discussed how he got to naming the tracks on Jeffery, revealing that it all about honesty: "The names of the songs were really who I was thinking about when I was making them, or who encouraged me to make them. So it was really a moment of honesty for me. To the world it may be greatness, but to me it’s just honest."
Finally, Thug also revealed his plans for his next album, promising that it will "probably be fucking ten times harder than Jeffery."
"Like this one was kind of Jeffery, but it was still kind of street. This one is gonna be just fully Jeffery."
