Young Thug’s new, anticipated mixtape, No, My Name is JEFFERY, is finally here.
The mixtape comes a week after it was delayed, and features Thugger on the cover wearing an elaborate blue evening gown that seems to be a sort of throwback to antebellum days.
The mixtape clocks in at 10 tracks and features Gucci Mane, Gunna, Quavo, Offset, Travi$ Scott, Young Scooter, Duke, and Wyclef Jean. He also said on Instagram that he, “named all of his tracks after his idols”–and the mixtape includes song titles like, “RiRi,” “Kanye West” and “Swizz Beats.” He debuted the track with Wyclef last week, after apologizing for the mixtape’s delay, saying that he didn’t like the original picture and wanted to get it just right. He’s obviously satisfied with the cover now.
This is Young Thug’s third project of the year. He also released I’m Up back in February, and followed that up with Slime Season 3 the next month in March. This mixtape has had quite a bit of hype surrounding it, especially after 300’s Lyor Cohen suggested that Young Thug was actually changing his name to No, My Name Is Jeffery (his birth name is Jeffery). But Thugger went on Travis Scott’s new Beats 1 radio show, .Wav and said that he was just changing it for only one week. Travis is also featured on the song “Pick Up Your Phone” with Young Thug.
“I’m Jeffery for one f—ing week. If I don’t sell a 100,000 copies,” he said on the show.
While he’s been busy releasing mixtapes, he’s promised that his debut album, Hy!£UN35, is still coming sometime soon. In the meantime, stream No, My Name is JEFFERY on Spotify below.
