Young Thug has a penchant for spotting and developing new talent, however, he didn’t have to look too far this time around when it came to one of his more recent signings. Meet Unfoonk, a talented young artist who just so happens to be Young Thug’s brother. While it is clear that talent runs in YSL bloodline, Unfoonk is very much his own artist, pulling major collabs with 24 Heavy and Slimelife Shawty on last year’s popular single Mob Ties, further earning respect from industry vets.
Since discovering hip-hop as a teenager, Unfoonk has done his due diligence, steadily writing and honing his craft. Despite the pandemic, the artist has continued releasing music and doing smaller performances setting himself up for a bright future. Checking in from ATL, Unfoonk caught up with ONE37pm’s Mike Boyd to give an update on what he has been working on.
