Atlanta rap star Young Thug has been on fire for a few years now. Since his debut with T.i. “All About the Money” and “Stoner,” the sky’s been the limit. Having a noteworthy fashion sense, likely influenced by his wife Jerrika and Ian Connor, the Atlanta rapper is ready for a shoe deal. Yesterday, the rapper who’s real name is Jeffrey, called out Converse shoe brand and said they need his trendsetting style on their team.
“If u need swagg call me… @converse” wrote Young Thug under a photo of him in low cut Chuck Taylor shoes.
Fans were confused by the mention. Several replied to the picture wondering if Thug had a deal with the sneaker company or was dissing them. However, with the rapper wearing the shoes, it’s clearly not a diss.
The depth of the statement is not known by any means. However, it’s highly likely Thugga Thugga could get a deal with the Converse shoe brand at will. His likeness attached to a shoe would certainly bring sales.
The last rapper to do a noteworthy deal with the Chuck Taylor collection was of course Wiz Khalifa. After years of wearing the shoe brand and representing his own “Taylor Gang” entity, a deal was finally struck and many stores saw shoe sales increase across the world thanks to the rapper.
