Young Thug is now a Grammy award-winning recording artist. The envelope-pushing Atlanta rapper just won his first award at Music’s Biggest Night for his work on Childish Gambino’s rampant “This Is America” — as the song has just been named Song of the Year at tonight’s ceremony.
Thugger is credited under his full name (Jeffery Lamar Williams) on the Grammy website. He is marked down as a songwriter with Donald Glover, and Ludwig Göransson.
“This Is America” also took home Record of the Year, Best Music Video, Best Rap/Sung Performance tonight.
