Young Thug breaks a promise he made last year. The rapper just dropped a three-song EP called Hear No Evil.
Earlier this year, Young Thug said that he would not release new songs in 2018 to honor his deaf brother. However, he broke this promise two months ago when he released the song "Back Bone."
"I've got a deaf brother. I've got a brother who can't hear or talk, so I want to act deaf for a year. So I ain't going to put out new no music this year," said Young Thug.
The rapper also said he would release his Hi-Tunes album in 2019.
Young Thug's 'Hear No Evil' Album
This week, Young Thug dropped an entire album packed with his collaborations with other artists such as Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage. The three-song compilation came with a music video featuring people doing sign language to the words of his collab song with Minaj, "Anybody." The music video, which lasts for over four minutes, is now available on YouTube.
Meanwhile, "Anybody" is not Young Thug's first collaboration with Minaj. In 2014, the "Anaconda" singer released her remix of the rapper's hit song "Danny Glover." They also teamed up on Juicy J's track "Low." In 2015, they reunited on Rae Sremmurd's song "Throw Sum Mo."
Young Thug Loves To Change His Name
In February, Young Thug also made headlines after he said that he would be changing his name to Sex. In 2016, he also asked his fans to call him Jeffrey, but he later revealed that he used the moniker as the title of his mixtape.
During an interview, the rapper explained why he loves to change his name now and then.
"I had a long-term relationship with Young Thug and I'm kind of picky. So I felt like I ain't wanna be in front of Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey. I ain't want my kids to grow up and call me Thug. I don't want anybody to kind of look at me like that. So I'm just gonna use my real name," said Young Thug.
After the interview, however, it was confirmed that the rapper would stick with his stage name.
