Young Nudy is moving at the perfect pace

The Atlanta rapper sits down with The FADER to talk Sli’merre, fatherhood, and learning from everyone’s mistakes — including his own.

June 25, 2019

The average outsider thinking of hip-hop in Atlanta will probably conjure a few superstar faces: Young Thug, Migos, 21 Savage, and the long-established Gucci Mane. But for people on the ground, it’s all Young Nudy. The East Atlanta rapper and 21 Savage affiliate’s reserved demeanor adds to his allure. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he doesn’t share too much about his personal life, but after being arrested and held for nearly three weeks in Atlanta back in early February, the rapper born Quantavious Thomas had more eyes on him than he ever wanted. In our recent sit-down with Nudy, he spoke with Ben Dandridge-Lemco about processing recent obstacles, his relationship with Pi’erre Bourne, and how fatherhood has changed him. And of course, he talked about his most recent project, Sli’merre. Watch the interview above.
