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. Its bonus track, “Pick Up the Phone” was originally a Travi$ Scott song, but now appears to be a track Thug’s project.
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 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 is officially changing his stage name to “No My Name is Jeffery.” The rapper’s real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, and Cohen’s statement made it seem like Thugger was officially going back to it. 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.
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.
Naturally, a lot of people had some funny takes on the cover, which features Young Thug wearing a dramatic, ruffly dress.
