The crazy prolific Atlanta rapper Young Thug has already released two mixtapes this year -- Slime Season 3 and I'm Up -- and earlier this week he brought his tour to NYC for a big sold-out show at Playstation Theater (5/3). Billboard caught the show, and wrote:
“Purple lights for Prince,” said Young Thug, who paid homage to the late icon at the start of his sold-out New York City show on the Hy!£UN35 (pronounced "Hi-Tunes") tour Monday night (May 2). Dressed in a white blouse and skinny jeans while rocking a microphone with the signature love symbol in black, the Atlanta rapper was also flanked by two large cardboard cut-outs of Michael Jackson and the Purple One. Images of Prince, one with a guitar and another with purple lighting shooting out of his finger, were also projected onstage. If you looked closely, Prince’s face transformed into Thug’s, a possible sign of the Atlanta rhymer's aspirations to attain icon status one day.
Lil Yachty and Rich the Kid opened. Pictures are in this post.
