Thug, is suing the owners of his apartment in Atlanta after the concierge service lost a hard drive containing 200 unreleased songs.
Back in 2020 Thug accidentally left a Louis Vuitton bag next to his black Lamborghini in the parking garage of the The Trace.
The bag contained $40,000 in cash, a diamond-encrusted watch worth $57,000, a diamond chain worth $37,000, and the aforementioned hard drive, which Thug values at $1 million.
The bag was retrieved by a fellow resident and handed into a member of The Trace’s concierge team, who contacted Thug that they’d found his bag and were keeping it in a secure area, however, another employee allegedly released Young Thug’s Louis Vuitton bag to an unknown person.
Young Thug is suing the apartment complex, claiming negligence and breach of their duty to care for his bag.

“It was a really nice meeting but I didn’t know what to call him,” he said. “Thug? Mr. Thug? Sir Thug? I could see the headline in the paper: Queen meets Thug. But anyway, it was a really nice meeting and I loved him. I left feeling full of energy as I do when I meet great new artists. He’s a really talented guy. I’d love to hear him sing more, and I said this to him when we met. He’s got a great voice.”
