Young Thug Becomes the Next Classic Work of Art

Thanks to Instagram.

Thanks to social media, Young Thug is now crossing the boundaries of musical and visual art. As HNHH reports, there's now an Instagram account known as @YoungThugAsPaintings, and it has quickly become one of the best rap-related Instagram pages in recent months. @YoungThugAsPaintings repurposes pictures of Young Thug, placing past shots of the Atlanta rapper alongside classic works of art that just so happen to look incredibly similar.
