Atlanta rapper Young Thug is making fans wait until 2019 before new music drops. The hip-hop star recently talked about his motivation behind shelving tunes for the next 11 months.

In a recent interview, Thugger said a family member is the key reason why he’s going radio silent.

“I’ve got a deaf brother. I’ve got a brother who can’t hear or talk, so I want to act deaf for a year. So, I ain’t going to put out no music this year. In 2019, I’m going to put out probably Hi-Tunes.” (HYPEBEAST)

This week, Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert referred to Thug’s new “Sex” alias and said he wanted new music.

Earlier in the week, Young Thug blew minds away after announcing his revamped name.

Back in November, the rap star’s ex-girlfriend Jerrika Karlae reunited with him following a public breakup.
