Young Thug Covers Complex Magazine’s June/July 2014 Issue
Rapper Young Thug, who is undoubtedly one of the most polarizing figures in the rap game, graces the cover of Complex magazine’s June/July 2014 issue. And he’s sporting a lot of hardware in his mouth.
The raw black-and-white cover, shot by photographer Justin Hogan, features a close-up of the Atlanta rapper’s face. His lips, gold fronts and braces are a main focal point.
Now that he’s under Birdman’s wing, all eyes are on Thugga and his upcoming plans in music. “Thug reminds me of myself and how we used to be in the streets,” the Cash Money CEO tells Complex. “And nobody help me. I want to help.”
The Complex feature chronicles Young Thug’s tumultuous childhood in the ATL and his involvement in the local rap scene.
Oddly enough, Young Thug barely talks with journalist Jacob Moore who patiently waits for him at several canceled photo shoots. The only quote the in-demand rapper gives the interviewer is that he has learned a lot from Lil Wayne.
In the meantime, Young Thug has released a new video for his weed anthem ‘Stoner.’
Complex magazine’s June/July 2014 issue, with Young Thug on the cover, will hit newsstands next week.
