1 month after the fatal shooting of an unarmed African American teen Mike Brown by former Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, metro-sexual rapper Young Thug made comments during an award show that united the St.Louis & cities across the Midwest, calling for a ban on the rapper promising violence and protest if he was to touch down in the St.Louis area.
Young Thugs last show in St.Louis prior to his comments was in March of 2014 at Klub Klymaxx less then 10 minutes from where Mike Brown Jr.was murdered months later. There were several attempts to bring Thugger to the city since then, which all fail short until Young Thug dropped a track hard enough for everyone to forgive him.
After a year of anger against Rich Hommie Quans Hubbie, reduced radio spins, and negative opinions Young Thug Dropped “Best Friend” a St.Louis anthem about bleeding bad, eating booty and other weird things.The song was so powerful & uplifting to St.Louis that Hot 104.1 began to play the song religiously as if it was a Drake, or Fetty Wap record. The city loved the record so much they almost forgot that up & coming St.Louis artist J.R. released a hot single with the same name similar concept in August of 2015 with Trey Songz, that’s currently creeping towards top 40 status.
The song was so hot that with out apologizing for his lack of empathy of Mike Browns murder, Young Thug was able to come back to the city that once “Banned” him, and the city gave him mad love in the form of a sold out show, no violence, no protest, and a few $1000 in his pocket and a possible yeast infection.
Young Thug was able to meet Mike Brown Sr. the father of the male who Young Thug gave 0 fucks about in 2014 & it was all good, they even took photos. S/o to everybody in St.Louis, St.Charles, and Metro East who put hot records over social issues,why stand for something when we can just turn up instead?
