Twitter Has A Little Fun With Young Thug's 'No, My Name Is Jeffery' Album Cover

Just a few hours before the midnight release of his debut album No, My Name Is Jeffery, Young Thug has released the project's album art with many sharing their thoughts and edits on social media.

During his album listening party at the YouTube office in New York Thursday evening (Aug. 25), the bold cover was revealed featuring Jeffery in a ruffled style dress, hiding behind a conical hat. Since the start of his career, Thugger's taste in clothing has been ridiculed and praised by fans. In several magazine and fashion spreads, the rapper has donned luxury women's clothing simply because they're comfier than men's threads. "Women’s clothes are [slimmer] than men’s clothes," Thugger said to GQ last year. "The jeans I got on right now, they’re women’s jeans. But they fit how they’re supposed to fit. Like a rock star. The only thing I probably have in men’s is, like, briefs. T-shirts. Ninety percent of my clothes are women’"

His decision to follow the creative golden road has led to more critique on everyone's favorite platform-- Twitter. Fans and critics mocked and praised the rapper for being Jeffery.

His official tracklist was also released during the livestream, with each track named after his favorite people like Wyclef Jean, Swizz Beats and Harambe, the silverback gorilla that was killed after a child fell into his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo.

He also explained the importance of using his real name on the album and what it means to his children.

John Singleton In Coma After Suffering From A Stroke

John Singleton is reportedly in a coma after suffering from a major stroke, TMZ reports.

The Boyz N the Hood filmmaker has reportedly been in the ICU since last weekend. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Singleton's mother, Sheila Ward, is asking a judge to appoint her temporary conservator of his work because he is "unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter." Singleton was reportedly working on several projects and preparing to sign a lucrative settlement agreement at the time of his stroke, according to Ward.

As previously reported, Singleton suffered a stroke on April 17, after returning from Costa Rica. After experiencing problems with his legs, he reportedly checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he suffered a stroke in his hospital room.

Bun B's Lawyer Provides Update On Attempted Armed Robbery Aftermath

On Tuesday (April 24), Bun B confronted an armed robber, who was later identified as 20-year-old DeMonte Jackson. The latter attempted to rob the legendary rapper's home but acted swiftly with his own registered firearm. When Bun B's wife, Angela "Queenie" Walls answered a knock on the door, a masked Freeman entered with his weapon but was later met with the Trill rapper's fire and was detained at a hospital while being treated for his wounds.

In a statement provided to XXL, lawyer Charles Adams said he doesn't expect charges to be filed against the Texas native. "In Texas, you can defend your home. And if an armed home invader breaks into your home and puts a gun at your wife's head, you can shoot the guy if he's still in your home," Adams said. "Honestly, this might sound cheesy, thank God that Bun had a gun. Thank God that he was courageous enough to defend his home and his wife [Queenie]. And thank God Queenie was courageous enough to not let the man go upstairs."

As Queenie led Jackson to the garage, Bun B, born Bernard Freeman, became aware of the incident from another part of the house and opened fire on Jackson. The latter was charged with one count of burglary plus two levies of aggravated robbery.

Former Felons May Have To Pay Court Fines Before Voting In Florida

Florida made history when it passed Amendment 4 restoring voting rights to the state's nearly one million former felons.

However, on Wednesday (April 24) the GOP-House passed a bill that would require former felons to pay court fees, fine,s and restitution prior to voting. The Senate bill requires that just restitution be paid. If this measure is passed it could prohibit thousands of ex-cons from being able to vote.

The state reportedly also doesn't have a method to properly tally restitution and to create a system could cost millions. On Wednesday, the House considered a proposal by the Senate that would allot $2 million to hire more workers at the Florida Commission on Offender Review to review the applications of former felons.

That commission would then report their findings to local supervisors of elections.

“Obviously, the individual is responsible for determining whether they’ve completed all the terms of their own sentence,” Sen. Jeff Brandes “If they have questions, they should go to local supervisors of elections.”
