Jeffery Lamar Williams popularly known as Young Thug is an American rapper, who has made a name for himself with several hit songs such as Best Friends, Livin It Up, Bubbly and others. The rap industry, previously thought to be dominated by ‘Macho Men’, is now undergoing a revolution. With artists like Lil Nax coming out, many people are wondering if Young Thug is gay? Here’s what we know about him.
Is Young Thug gay?
It’s not new for figures from the popular entertainment and music industry to be surrounded by gay rumours. But in 2016, when Young Thug wore a “colorful dress” on the cover of his Jeffery project, many people took it as a hint and started speculating that the rapper was gay. However, in 2019, Young Thug denied all such rumors during a conversation with the press, claiming that he is straight. He even went on to say that he is arguably the “most sincere person in the world.”
The rapper didn’t stop there, as he also made controversial comments saying, “I’m the most straight guy in the world. I hate guys. F**k are you talking about? I ain’t even having a threesome without n*** a!” That’s why we can’t stress the fact more than Young Thug himself did that he’s not gay, and he also thinks his fellow rapper Lil Nax shouldn’t have come out to the people either, because he thinks they’re just judging.
