Young Thug has just released a new trailer for his forthcoming project, Jeffery. The project's title, and campaign, refer to the Atlanta rapper's given name: Jeffery Lamar Williams. In the video, Williams struggles with his dual identity in an interrogation room where multiple characters (a lawyer, a family member, a former love?) attempt to get him to admit to going by the name Young Thug, while the artist in question refuses them on all accounts. The rapper took to social media this morning to post the trailer, announcing that the long-awaited project will be coming this Friday, August 26. Young Thug, Jeffery—whatever you want to call him, we can't wait.
