Young Thug Has Changed His Name to “SEX”

February 21, 2018 / Posted by:

When it comes to the music of today, I’ve become that bitter old head side-eyeing all of the new artists and wishing that hip-hop could be as good as it was in the 90s. So when I hear the name Young Thug I can’t tell him apart from Lil’ Bo Beep, Young Lemonhead or any of these other Minute Maid rapper mutha fuckas. Well, I guess he couldn’t tell either because yesterday he announced on Twitter that he’s changed his name to SEX.

It all happened yesterday when Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Williams, decided to shock the world  (not really) by revealing his new name in a few tweets (via Billboard)

I really don’t even know where to start. Yes I do. “For now on?” What’s up with him tweeting like he’s Tarzan?  And why is he changing his name to SEX? There ain’t any kind of sex I’d want from him. Clearly there has to be an explanation as to how he went from Young Thug to SEX, but honestly this isn’t the first time he’s decided to swap out his name for something different.

Back in 2016, he decided to permanently change his name to No, My Name Is Jeffrey if his mixtape Jeffrey sold 100,000 units in its first week (it didn’t). He also explained that he wanted to revert back to his government name just in case he ever came into a professional setting with people of influence.

“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,” he said during a listening party. “I don’t want anybody to kind of look at me like that. So I’m gonna just use my real name.”

That didn’t last long and he went back to using Young Thug. And now, he’s a walking wet dream named SEX. All of this is just wrong. Jeffrey, brotha, I think using SEX as your name now is way worse than Young Thug because what’s gonna happen when you finally do meet Oprah and say “Hi my name is SEX”? They’re going to escort you out of there faster than Omarosa at an NAACP rally.
