Young Thug and YFN Lucci are not friends. They have been issues and beef since 2017.
On Sunday, YFN Lucci resorted to Instagram to criticize Young Thug for the release of his new album, So Much Fun.
“Cap Ass Album,” Lucci wrote on his Instagram account, but he didn’t say who he was referring to.
He backed that up with “kid nearly s****** on himself in Lenox,” a reference to Thug, and a simple “cap” message. “Cap” means “lying” in English.
Thug was quick to answer, and he was much more blunt and scary in his threat to kill Lucci.
“If ain like what u do for your mother and kids I WOULDVE BEEN KILLED U,” he wrote on his Instagram story, tagging YFN Lucci.
Since 2017, Young Thug has been feuding with YFN Lucci and his friend/rapper Sauce Walka on and off. Both rappers went silent for a while before reigniting their feud in March of this year.
Their public feud has primarily occurred on Instagram, with the two exchanging insulting words in live streams and postings.
Both YFN Lucci and Young Thug are Atlanta-based rappers. They’re both 28 and one of Atlanta’s most well-known trap performers.
“I dropped E.B.B.T.G. on 2PAC’S bday because I’m the #NewPac,” Young Thug tweeted back in 2017.
“I feel like I’m the thug he didn’t get to be,” he wrote, adding the hashtag “#SoImGoinFinishWhatHeStarted.”
The abbreviation relates to his 2017 EP, “Easy Breezy Beautiful Thugger Girls,” or “Beautiful Thugger Girls” for short, which had elements of country music.
The rapper’s use of Tupac’s name enraged YFN Lucci, and the battle of words escalated from there.
YFN Lucci responded to Thug’s Tupac comments by saying, “Pac would’ve never worn a dress,” followed by a clown emoji.
Lucci is referring to Young Thug’s 2016 mixtape “Jeffery,” which featured the rapper on the front cover wearing an Alessandro Trincone-designed outfit.
Thug explained in his latest song that he used the clothing to conceal an AK-47 assault gun.
In a series of tweets, Young Thug retaliated by threatening YFN Lucci’s life. “Thank God you can look for your mama and be humble.” “Doing too much could lead to a deep sleep,” Thug wrote on Twitter.
