The artist formerly known as Young Thug will now go by SEX, according to a pair of tweets he posted overnight. “I’m changing my name to SEX….” he wrote in the early hours. “For now on call me SEX!!!” Back in 2016, Thug stirred some confusion over whether his name had changed to JEFFERY, or, as he later implied, No, My Name Is JEFFERY. It turned out the former was just the name of a mixtape he released as Young Thug shortly after. Pitchfork has emailed his reps for comment.
His last full-length was the Future collab Super Slimey.
