The FADER : Young Thug : Came from Nothing


“In the spare bedroom of a small brick house in East Point, Atlanta, the 22-year-old rapper Young Thug is crouched in a cramped, wooden closet, ad-libbing into a microphone strung from the wall. Darting between warbling melodies and quick, halting yawps, his voice rings out through the other rooms of the house and even faintly onto the sidewalk outside, where it’s cold and the lawn is newly covered in brown and yellow leaves. It’s early December, and all along the street are cinder-block strip malls with Christmas lights and locked grates over the doors and windows, most of them shuttered for the night.” Read more here and check out cover shoot in Atlanta with photographer Kendrick Brinson.
