Young Thug just picked himself up a pretty good end of the year accolade. SPIN mag has named the Thugger their "rapper of the year."
The other three emcee they seemed to consider for the title were Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj and Killer Mike. But in the end it was the 23-year ATLers consistent output over the calender year that made him their choice. They write:
Thug's prolific, assembly-line nature of working and unplanned release schedule have all caused him to have multiple signature songs at once, depending on which demographic you ask. After the infectious mixtape favorite 'Danny Glover' and actual Hot 100-charting hit 'Stoner' made inroads from two different directions, he's finally lit up the boards on 'Lifestyle,' a glistening far cry from the scuzzy DIY of Black Portland (which may have been smoked into existence years ago for all we know).Young Thug can be a bit of a polarizing figure, so some of you probably vehemently disagree. If so, who is your rapper of the year?
