Yesterday (August 16), Young Thug reached his 30th birthday milestone, which he celebrated alongside his many friends, family, and music peers with an all-pink extravaganza. Naturally, the lavish gifts were in abundance — 21 Savage brought him a Bottega Veneta watch, while XO’s Amir “Cash” Esmailian got Thugger a spider ring from Eliantte & Co. Even T.I. join in on the goodwill with some high-end art — a set of what looks like pink broken hearts for the So Much Fun rapper to add to his collection.
Out of the many presents received, the most memorable one probably comes from Thug’s own YSL artist Gunna. In a video that’s made it way to social media, Young Thug can be seen tossing a liquid-filled cup upon seeing a bright pink Bentley Continental GT Convertible:

In related news, Young Thug also recently received iHeartRadio’s Titanium Award for reaching one billion total audience spins via his and Chris Brown’s Slime & B standout “Go Crazy.” He and Brown join Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, 24kGoldn, and Iann Dior in the honor, all of whom earned their own awards via the singles “Positions,” “Levitating,” and “Mood,” respectively.
It’s been a couple of years since Young Thug liberating his official debut LP So Much Fun, a project that followed well-received mixtapes like Barter 6, Jeffery, Beautiful Thugger Girls, Super Slimey with Future, and the Slime Season series. Including its deluxe upgrade, So Much Fun saw 24 tracks with a slew of contributions from the likes of Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, Doe Boy, Lil Keed, Quavo, Juice WRLD, Travis Scott, NAV, and J. Cole. The album also earned Thug his first number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to 131,000 first week album equivalent units, subsequently scoring a Platinum certification as well.
