In his 24 years, Jeffrey Lamar Williams has been known by a few names: His given name, Young Thug, and Thugger. Now, as the rapper prepares to release his Jeffery mixtape, he's also getting ready to undergo an identity change.
300 Entertainment boss Lyor Cohen was interviewed on the Rap Radar podcast recently, and during his appearance, he said:
Young Thug is not going to be Young Thug anymore. His new name is going to be "No, My Name Is Jeffery." The reality is, when you see this commercial, you're all going to understand what we do here at 300. Because it's powerful images of what makes someone Young Thug and what the evolution and how someone is Jeffrey. It's a circular thing, it's important. "No, My Name is Jeffery" is on its way. Please respect us to actually segue and utilize his name going forward because it's important.
