Young Thug: “I made the way for young niggas to open up and be they self. I did this. I got crucified.”

In a recent Instagram live broadcast, Young Thug proclaimed his influence spawned hip-hop’s new generation of rappers.

I created this shit,” he said in the video, making reference to his penchant for tight jeans and what’s considered “feminine” fashion. “I made the way for young niggas to open up and be they self. I did this. I got crucified. They call me gay; they ain’t call y’all niggas gay […] I made y’all tighten y’all jeans up.”
