While at the Fader Fort for his performance, the cameraman caught up with Young Thug to ask him all the tough questions that inquiring minds want to know the answers to. Thugger proceeded to answer most the questions in circling answers because.

When asked who he’s signed with, Young Thug says “Rich Gang, to the death.” That’s in line with the previous announcement made in NOLA during NBA All-Star Weekend, one that aligns him with YMCMB. However, it contradicts Billboard’s report that Thug’s still bound his contract to 1017 Brick Squad/Atlantic, per an unnamed rep for the label.

What this could ultimately mean is he’s about to sign a deal to CMR and end up just like Suge explained and TRA expanded on – tied down contractually to multiple labels who’ll all get a piece of the pie before he does. For what it’s worth, Mack Maine says Cash Money merely “adopted” Thugger so let’s hope that’s the case.

During a latter part of the clip, he also speaks on his February arrest during a traffic stop that landed him a string of petty charges, most notably possession of a controlled substance. As he explains, the fuzz said the stop stemming from him doing “donuts or some shit. My rims like $7,500 a rim. Why would I hit donuts?”

Most of what he says doesn’t make a ton of of sense. For anything close to clarity or understanding, I might suggest referring back to our 5 Essentials or perusing his Fader cover story that published recently.

Enh, I can’t believe the interviewer didn’t ask him about his dope ticks?
