With the pandemic leading to lost opportunities such as touring and show gigs, Young Thug explained in an interview with Big Boy how his pockets are being affected.
When asked how much money he’s set to lose over the next two months, Thugger estimated a loss of nearly $5 million due to the public remaining in quarantine. “See, it’s gon’ cost me double, right, cause I ain’t going to be able to do the shows,” he said.
He continued to break down his losses, saying, “The money that I get for the shows — let’s just say I get $500,000 — if I don’t do these ten shows, that’s 5 Ms. Then I don’t make five million ’til June, and then I might spend a million, I might spend two million just on this quarantine s–t. I got my mom and daddy. I’m like, ‘Man, y’all stay in the house,’ they like, ‘Yeah.’ They get tired of their house they every week, now they want a penthouse suite at the hotel. That s–t costs money. However, much money I lose on the show, that’s probably the same amount of money I lose spending my money.”
Thugger also joked about not inviting Lil Uzi Vert over his house during quarantine because “he the f–king devil.” “He’ll break stuff in your house. He do little evil stupid s–t,” he said.
Recently, a weary Thugger cited a bible passage on Instagram, urging the public to “pay attention” with the uptick in coronavirus cases. The passage reads: “Whenever I hold back the rain or send locusts to eat up the crops or send an epidemic on my people, if they pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make their land prosperous again.”
