At the stroke of 12:01 am, Young Thug’s name was automatically trending in celebration of his born day, with almost every post including “#Free YSL.”  Thugger, born Jeffrey Lamar Williams Atkins this day in 1991, was jailed back in May 2022 in Georgia on conspiracy to violate the RICO Act.  His bond request was denied by a judge who cited concerns that the YSL leader could be a danger to the community, witnesses, and to other people in this indictment.

Many fans of Thug shared their favorite videos of the trap music trailblazer, ranging from the iconic moment of him taking over the AUX at Kanye’s Fashion show to him vibing out to the indie anthem, “Some Nights,” by FUN.

But a birthday isn’t the only thing that makes this specific day worthy of celebration for Thugger and his fans. Three years ago today, Thug released his project So Much Fun to critical acclaim. The project boasts features including Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Juice Wrld, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi, and current alternative music icon Machine Gun Kelly.
