While we continue to wait on his Jeffery mixtape, it was revealed that Young Thug will be changing his stage name to his birth name. Well sort of. During a recent appearance on Rap Radar’s podcast 300 Ent.’s Lyor Cohen stated that the rapper will be changing his name to “No, My Name Is Jeffery.”
“The reality of the situation is, Young Thug is not going to be ‘Young Thug’ anymore. His new name is going to be ‘No My Name Is Jeffery.’ ‘No, My Name is Jeffery.’ That’s his new name. And 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 Jeffery. It’s a circular thing, it’s important. ‘No, My Name is Jeffery’ is on it’s way. Please respect us to actually segue and utilize his name going forward because it’s important.”
The Artist Formerly Known As Young Thug is supposed to be dropping his Jeffery mixtape this month, either August 16th or August 26th.
