Despite the fact that the recent background is very different, Young Thug has been a popular name in the rap business for about a decade. Many people are sharing their opinions on the rapper due to the response to his most recent album, BUSINESS IS BUSINESS, and his continuing RICO lawsuit with YSL. Even his birthplace of Atlanta, Georgia, appears to be turning against him, at least according to his sister Dolly White. She recently posted on Twitter that she believes everyone in the city “hates” him, which sounds blatantly exaggerated. After all, she included some crying-laughing and face-palming emojis, and the sympathy for the trap inventor has been plentiful.
“I’m convinced every n***a in Atlanta HATE MY BROTHER,” White wrote on Twitter for unknown reasons. No matter what you thought of his new project, it’s hard to deny the monumental impact that Young Thug had on the Atlanta rap scene. Whether for his classic catalog (Barter 6, Slime Season 3, JEFFERY, and so on) or his eccentric vocalizations, lyrics, and style, he clearly made his dent in the game. That being said, the controversy around his legal case and his new album full of leaks and tracks in the vault is certainly divisive.
Dolly White Thinks Atlanta Isn’t Rocking With Young Thug
For example, many immediately compared BUSINESS IS BUSINESS to Gunna’s new album a Gift & a Curse, which came out just a week before. Of course, a lot of that conversation owed itself to their speculated beef, making it even more of an interesting debate. While some fans want to stay “loyal” to Thugger and not listen to the “snitch,” others doubt that narrative. Most importantly, fan consensus online seems to be that Thug’s protégé actually put out the better body of work in that week-long timespan.
Regardless, Dolly White has other things to worry about when it comes to her brother. Recently, she voiced frustration over Quando Rondo getting bond before him. “So quando got a bond on Rico charges but they won’t give Jeff one,” he tweeted. “Let alone found not one juror to start the process. The system failing us when they won’t Free Jeff already damn.” Sure, things may seem bleak, but whether for his music or in support of his freedom, a lot of people in Atlanta are still riding for Thugger.
