Young Thug Tells ‘GQ’ He Would Never Buy A Jay Z CD
Here is yet another sign that Young Thug has made it. Appearing in GQ’s “Legacy Project” alongside Nas, Stevie Wonder and a host of other notable artists, the Atlanta rapper offered a few gems on his aspirations to become wealthy and iconic. He also discussed why rap is a “young man’s game,” with an interesting remark on Jay Z.
Why not rap forever?
I don't want to be 50 years old and rapping, man. I'm pretty sure nobody wants to do that. I'm pretty sure Jay Z don't wanna rap right now.
Why is it such a young man's game?
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.
