YFN Lucci and Young Thug’s yearslong beef got ratcheted up another notch when Lucci went on Atlanta’s V-103 FM on Monday, Aug. 20 and said he slept with Thugger’s girlfriend on a couple of occasions. Thugger’s longtime girl, Jerrika Karlae, vehemently denied that and went off on a profanity-laced tirade against Lucci, dismissing him as a “clout chaser.” The newest round of insults began when Lucci mentioned the alleged sexual tryst. “I was in the bed with her a couple times,” he smiled after DJ Frank Ski broached the topic. “We ain’t gonna talk on that though.” Karlae fired back on Twitter, saying: “Imagine someone speaking on your name that you never f—–, imagine being harassed year by year by a n—- that has no comeback so he taunts a female!” The beef between the two 28-year-old Atlanta rappers is a couple of years in the making:
Back in 2017, according to Heavy.com, Young Thug claimed he was this era’s Tupac Shakur, which is high praise to heap on yourself. Thugger tweeted: “I dropped E.B.B.T.G. on 2PAC’S bday because I’m the #NewPac. I feel like I’m the thug he didn’t get to become,” adding hashtag “#SoImGoinFinishWhatHeStarted.”
According to Heavy, the beef seemed to be squashed when YFN Lucci (real name Rashawn Bennett) and Young Thug (real name Jeffery Lamar Williams) both guested on Clifford “T.I.” Harris’ 2018 album Dime Trap. But the cold war escalated again in 2019 when someone asked on Young Thug’s Instagram Live post what he would do to Lucci if ever caught him in the streets. And the two rappers have been volleying insults and threats of violence at each other ever since. Now let's just see how both rappers put music out and discuss their beef.
