Controversy seems to follow Young Thug everywhere he goes and recently there seem to have been quite a few of them. Just last week, he got into an altercation with rapper Plies after he posted a video of Young Thug’s daughter on Instagram using swear words. In the video, she says, “I’m mother****in’ [tired]” to her mother. The video had gone viral and Plies reportedly thought it was a good idea to share it online. Plies’ caption of video was what infuriated Young Thug, as it read as follows, as reported by The Boom Box.
“#BihFeelLikeMeBih #AintNoMixtapeBih #BihIsDiggingInDatNose #SameShitIBeTellingABih. “
“Bih,” as used in the caption meant “b****,” which prompted Young Thug to post a video telling Plies to remove the video immediately. The following transcript detailed his response, according to Billboard.
“Man listen, I want everybody in the world to at this f*** n**** Plies and tell this p**** a** n**** if he don’t take this mother***in’ video down of my daughter off his mother****in’ page, calling her out her name, it’s gonna be problems…”
Plies later on posted his response pointing out that his intention was not to disrespect anybody’s children and that he didn’t know the child on the video was in fact Young Thug’s daughter. The following was the message.
“If you had a problem with it, f*** n****, you ask me to take it down. You don’t threaten me to do nothing, p**** n****.”
Young Thug countered this response by highlighting that both Plies and the mother of his daughter were in trouble for the video. The following was the message, as captioned.
“U NOT THE ONLY #B**CH IN TROUBLE THE #MOM IS TOO, I WILL NEVER CONDONE MY CHILD CURSIN! AND HAD I KNOWN ABOUT IT.. IT WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ON THE INTERNET….”
The video of Young Thug’s daughter is still on Plies’ Instagram page.
In other news, Young Thug just had an interview with Clique, a French website. And, with the words, “I’m a cold-hearted motherf***er, I don’t give a f*** about people,” he kicked off the session. In the interview, Young Thug explained his song writing skills, saying he in fact doesn’t write songs. The following was his statement.
“I don’t write. You won’t ever see a Young Thug paper with no songs on it.”
Rap Up reported he went on to add that he was probably from another planet, saying, “You heard they found another Earth? It’s the same as Earth but 10 times bigger. I’m probably from there.”
