After paying a more subtle tribute to Prince in the recent video for his new single "Texas Love," Young Thug went several steps above and beyond that for his latest Purple One tribute. Last night, Thugger took the stage at New York City's PlayStation Theater for another spirited performance. This time around, however, he came out dressed up much more flamboyantly than normal. Dressed up like the reincarnated version of Prince and with a Prince backdrop, Young Thug honored the late legend by basically becoming him and emulating him for an entire set. You can check out some photos and clips courtesy of Pitchfork.
I gotta appreciate the fact that young thug photoshopped his own face onto prince's pic.twitter.com/nkvkRufYU6
