Young Thug is the new king of the Billboard 200 album chart, replacing his good friend Drake.
The Atlanta MC, born Jeffery Williams, sold 90,000 units of his new album, Punk, to debut at the top of the chart. Drizzy’s Certified Lover Boy sold 83,000 units and fell to second place. This is Williams’ third number-one album, following his Slime Language 2 compilation album earlier in 2021, and So Much Fun in 2019.
The 20-track Punk features A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Doja Cat, Future, Gunna, Juice WRLD, Post Malone, Mac Miller, Nate Ruess, Travis Scott and Drake. As previously reported, Young Thug presented the Champagne Papi with a custom OVO chain, featuring a photo of him with his son Adonis on the back, for his birthday, which was on Sunday.
In addition to Punk, Williams also appears on Elton John‘s new album, The Lockdown Sessions, on the song “Always Love You,” which also features Nicki Minaj.
However, not all the news is good news for Young Thug. He’s suing an apartment-management company over a stolen bag with contents he values at over $1 million, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The “Go Crazy” rapper says the bag contained $40,000 in cash, a diamond-encrusted watch and chain that was worth $94,000, and 20 unreleased songs.
He says on November 1, 2020, he returned to his apartment building and accidentally left a Louis Vuitton bag beside his vehicle. Williams claim that a member of the concierge service informed him that she would hold the bag until he retrieved it, and that it was then given to someone else
