Young Thug grew up in Section 8 housing in a very poor, violent part of Atlanta and had virtually nothing as a kid. His teeth were rotted and so discolored that he felt it necessary to cover his mouth when he talked. He is one of 11 children and his mother has an enlarged heart.

More recently, Thug’s former security guard was assassinated in his home near downtown Atlanta. So in short, the ATL rapper has been through some stuff. But when asked, Thugger disclosed to GQ that having kids is the hardest thing he’s ever done. The charismatic artist currently has six children by four women.

“They ain’t easy. It be like, ‘If I could take this back? Yes, what the fuck was I thinking!’ Haha,” Thug joked. But he does without a doubt provide for his kids. His children all go to private school, although he doesn’t attend PTA meetings or other such functions, saying, “They [the other parents] would probably freak out. I can’t do stuff like that. It’s just hectic.”

In addition to speaking on his children, Thug also revealed to GQ where he thinks he’ll be in ten years. Spoiler alert, it’s nowhere but up.
