Young Thug’s Jeffery project was originally supposed to come out on August 16 – the same day as the Atlanta star’s birthday. But, due to issues over the album cover and an added Travis Scott verse, the album was pushed back. Amidst the chaos of the rollout, 300 Entertainment founder Lyor Cohen announced that Young Thug had officially changed his name to No, My Name Is Jeffery.
On Monday night, Thugger took to his Instagram to announce that Jeffrey will be dropping this Friday, August 26. Announced via an album trailer, the clip finds Thugger sitting in an interrogation room with different people asking him his name. While they insisted his name was Young Thug, he kept responding with “No, my name is Jeffery,” before the release date shows up at the very end of the clip.
Watch the announcement clip below, and be sure to check back Friday for the full album.
