In a recent interview with the Rap Radar podcast, 300 Ent. head honcho Lyor Cohen said that Young Thug is changing his name to “No, My Name Is Jeffery.”
“That’s his new name. And the reality is, when you see this commercial, you’re all going to understand what we do here at 300,” says Cohen. “Because it’s powerful images of what makes someone Young Thug and what the evolution and how someone is Jeffery. It’s a circular thing, it’s important. ‘No, My Name is Jeffery’ is on it’s way. Please respect us to actually segue and utilize his name going forward because it’s important.”
News of the change in his moniker comes in conjunction with the upcoming release of the artist formerly known as Young Thug’s mixtape Jeffery, which is schedule to drop at the end of the month.
