Young Thug celebrated his mother’s birthday in style as he copped her a brand new Mercedes SLK convertible for her born day. The Slime Season 3 rapper hopped on social media yesterday (April 17) to show off his mom sitting in the cherry red whip, which retails for right around $50,000. Proud that he’s able to cop his mother a gift of this proportion on her big day, the Atlanta native can’t help but smile as he cooly says, “It’s my momma’s birthday. Bought her a Benz.”
Thugger has a lot to celebrate these days as his career continues to take off. The rapper’s most recent album, Slime Season 3, has been widely lauded as one of the best hip-hop projects of the year and is putting up big sales numbers. The album racked up over 22,000 traditional sales and a monstrous 18.9 million streams in its first week.
The numbers added up to right around 40,000 in equivalent units under the RIAA’s new sales system, which was good enough to chart at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200. It marked the second time the eccentric rapper made a dent on the charts this year as his February release I’m Up peaked at No. 22.
Thug’s mom wasn’t the only woman in his life to get spoiled. He also bought his fiancee Jerrika Karlae a new diamond-studded ring. The two have been engaged since last April and Karlae says she was immediately swept off his feet by Thug.
“Everything he said was perfect, he completely swept me right off of my feet,” Thug’s fiancée said of when they began dating. “That’s what people don’t know, he’s a charmer. Especially with women, he will sweep you off of your feet with words.”
