Young Thug recently did an exclusive interview with GQ and as usual he said some things that make you say…. “hmmmm…”
The interview started off with the question: Are you a music lifer? As in do you want to do music for the rest of your life. Young Thug stated that he doesn’t want to be 50 years old rapping. He then went on to say that Jay-Z doesn’t even want to rap at his age. My thing is, how are you going to speak for Jay though? He was just on tour!
The interviewer went on to ask him: Why Is It Such A Young Man’s Game? That’s when Young Thug replied:
If you’re 30, 40 years old, you’re not getting listened to by minors. Like, Jay Z has some of the sickest lyrics ever, but I would never buy his CD, just because of my age and because of his age. By the time I turn that old, I ain’t gonna be doing what he’s doing.
Well, is he right? How many Rappers in their 40’s or 50’s besides 2chainz have buzz in the industry? Not many. However, we don’t need the children listening to Young Thug’s music either! I’m all for club bangers but if we can’t comprehend what you are saying…..
Anyway, despite all of the Lil Wayne and Birdman drama, Young Thug (who has been accused of trying to take Wayne’s place) openly admitted that he admired Wayne’s career and would love to have one like it.
He also stated that he would like to be the next Bill Gates. Well…
Young Thug is known for his shocking statements. We still haven’t forgotten his interview with Bossip when he stated that he doesn’t feel he should have an opinion about Ferguson.
Ironically, I don’t think we are giving Young Thug and his marketing team the credit that they deserve!
Oh and how did he get this interview with GQ…
