Last year, Young Thug began receiving national attention for his music. At the time, he was working closely with Gucci Mane and he dropped several singles during this period. Among the songs was “Stoner,” which became a breakout hit earlier this year for Young Thug.
When Young Thug’s popularity began to rise, his social media followers exploded and rumors began. It was soon said, by the fans, that Young Thug was gay, as he often referred to men in his photos as “bae” and “my love.” Then, there were some who interpreted his lyrics as gay.
Hip Hop Vibe did some research and a source close to Young Thug said he was not gay, thus making the rumors false. Despite this confirmation, this did not slow the speculation. In the end, it took Young Thug to come out and address the situation, which he did via Twitter this afternoon.
