Young Thug has been known to march to the beat of his own drum. Never one to stay restricted by cultural expectations, Thugger’s androgynous nature has been an acquired taste for many-a-close-minded hip-hop fan. He’s even up for donning a dress when the occasion calls for it. In that sense, Thug truly cares little about a naysayer’s opinion, moving accordingly on Instagram. Today, he’s starting the New Year off right, highlighting a budding bromance that may or may not spell collaboration in the months to come.
In the post, Thugger and Juice WRLD post up together, with Thugger looking particularly animated, dare I say alarmed. Juice seems to be in the midst of a thoroughly enjoyable moment of enhanced lucidity, throwing up what the kids once dubbed “the shocker.” Thug seems to have nothing but admiration, and perhaps a little more, for the young rapper. “My luv,” reads the caption, alongside a pair of hearts.
There’s no telling if the pair linked up in the studio, or simply as buddies on their own time. One thing is certain, however. Juice WRLD has effortlessly integrated himself into the Super Slimey core. New music feels like a foregone conclusion at this point.
