On Friday, Young Thug dropped his highly-anticipated BEAUTIFUL THUGGER GIRLS album, which features verses from Snoop Dogg, Future, and more. Today, the Atlanta rapper took to Twitter to explain why he released the album on June 16. “I dropped E.B.B.T.G on 2PAC’S bday because I’m the #newPAC,” he wrote. “I feel like I am the thug he didn’t get to become #SoImGoinFinishWhatHeStarted.” He’s not the first rapper to call himself Tupac, but considering that hip-hop heads partially blame him for the existence of mumble rap — he might wanna chill. Of course Twitter users let him have shortly after he tweeted the post:
ur not anywhere close to being like pac

What’s even more surprising is that people are saying that Thug is better:
True. Pac could never reach thuggers level
