Young Thug Responds to Plies Clowning His Sales: ‘Go Check the Numbers’

Young Thug seems to be a magnet for beefs. While sparring with Game, Thugger also has to deal with an ongoing feud between he and Florida rapper Plies.

The controversy started last fall when Plies re-posted a viral Instagram video of Young Thug’s daughter saying she was “muthaf—ing tired.” Thugger responded by threatening to slap Plies the next time the two encountered each other (“Get this s— off yo page or its problems”) and Plies eventually fired back in an interview with Complex.

“First of all, I don’t play with a certain tier of artist,” Plies declared. “I don’t play with a certain tier of artists, like you trying to get poppin’ and s—. I don’t f— with lower tier artists, I just don’t.”

After citing Thugger’s album sales, (Young Thug’s I’m Up project reportedly opened its first week at 10,000 units sold) Plies reiterated that the Atlanta rapper was not of a high enough stature to bother him.

“You got cats who ain’t poppin’ trying to get poppin.’ They just say what they want to say,” said Plies. “Dog ain’t poppin’ … What he did –10-14,000 records the first week? That’s poppin?’”

“Don’t you go back and forth with a muthaf—a that ain’t on your level.”

Sure, Plies has two gold albums–but they were released almost a decade ago, when people actually still bought rap albums en masse. But we won’t let a good rap beef get bogged down with silly things like specifics.

Young Thug issued another diss to Plies via Twitter.

“@plies uma millionaire p—y boy,” Thug tweeted.

“And I bought my whole family CARS/HOUSES HAVE U LIL N—A…@plies go check the numbers p—y, I got way more HITS then u could ever have…. And u twice my age @plies u need a tour @plies U disrespect kids f— boy, nobody f—s with that type…ALWAYS REMEMBER…. “IM UP”
