Young Thug announces ridiculous name change

"For now on call me SEX!!!"

Young Thug has announced that he is changing his name – to SEX.

It’s not the first time Thugger has expressed a desire to alter his moniker. In 2016, he said he wanted to go by his birth name, JEFFERY, but later settled to give a mixtape that title.

Now the Atlanta rapper has taken to Twitter to write: “I’m changing my name to SEX…. For now on call me SEX!!!”. See those posts below.

Young Thug has spoken of his reasons for wanting to change his name in the past, saying in 2016: “I had a long-term relationship with Young Thug and I’m kind of picky. So I felt like I ain’t wanna be in front of Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey. I ain’t want my kids to grow up and call me Thug. I don’t want anybody to kind of look at me like that. So I’m gonna just use my real name.”

He isn’t the only rap artist changing his name either. Diddy recently confirmed that he is actually changing his name to Love, despite previously backtracking on his claims.

He explained: “You can call me by the other names. It’s just an evolution of my soul and my vibration. I’m Diddy, but during the days that are really, really good, I’m Love – which is all of the time.”
