Young Thug Dubs Himself “The #NewPac”

Written by 56 seconds Read

Since Young Thug stepped onto the scene, the Atlanta native continued to promote the influence of his idols like Lil Wayne within his music. Now, another figure in Thug’s world of inspiration has guided the “Best Friend” rapper’s current album.

Following the release of Thug’s Beautiful Thugger Girls project (June 16), the 25-year-old said Tupac was its driving force and he decided to release it on the “Ghetto Gospel” rapper’s 46th birthday (June 16). “I feel like I am the thug he didn’t get to become #SoImGoinFinishWhatHeStarted,” he wrote.

Thug isn’t the only person who feels they’re cloaked in Tupac’s memory. One of his previous collaborators, Wyclef Jean, said his fellow Haitian-American has a similar revolutionary side that Pac possessed.

“He’s from a project, I’m from a similar background. And he has a natural love for Haiti, understanding the history of Haiti. Haiti is the first black republic,” Jean said to Pigeons and Planes. “He reminded me of a modern Tupac, in a sense — in a revolutionary sense.”
