Young Thug Is Heading Out On Tour With Co-Headliner MGK This Fall

Young Thug and Machine Gun Kelly are linking up to go on tour this autumn along with rising stars Killy, Polo G, Strick, and YBN Nahmir (on select dates). It’s a co-headlining arena tour that combines the star power of the fan favorites, who are both experiencing an uptick in interest lately — albeit, for two very different reasons.

While MGK does have a new album, Hotel Diablo, to promote, his name made most of its headlines last year for his brash battle rap aiming at rap icon Eminem. Even Young Thug chimed in on the battle, saying MGK “killed” Eminem. After weathering the storm, he has a newly renewed public profile and the new music to back up his regained infamy. He also appeared in the recent Motley Crue movie, The Dirt, as a member of the band.

Meanwhile, Young Thug never really stopped putting out new music — even when he vowed he wouldn’t — but hasn’t released a full-length project since 2017’s Beautiful Thugger Girls. However, he has secured some high-profile features from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, and Lil Nas X. He’s once again climbing the charts thanks to some help from his famous friends, and the renewed interest is more than enough excuse to hit the, ahem, road.
