Dark Light

After close to a decade of grinding with a series of mixtapes, Young Thug has finally hit the commercial level he’s deserved all along.

For a rapper who’s been responsible for some of the best hit records of the past few years (“Stoner”, “Pick Up the Phone”, “The London”, “Hot”, “Go Crazy”), Thugga’s record sales has never matched up fully with his immense talent and creativity. But it seem like this trend has started to shift.

From his early mixtapes to his first number one project, So Much Fun, we take a look at the rankings of Young Thug’s first week album sales.
