Young Thug recently sat down for an interview with GQ where he discussed all things music. Thug, who is not too equipped on interviews where he supplies long statements – like the cover story for Complex, did a pop up interview for the mens magazine.
During the interview he stated that although Jay-Z has some ill lyrics, he would never buy an album based off of his age. Check out the excerpt below:
“JAY Z HAS SOME OF THE SICKEST LYRICS EVER, BUT I WOULD NEVER BUY HIS CD.”
GQ: Are you a music lifer?
Young Thug: Yeah, I’ma be here forever. I don’t want to rap forever. But I want to be rich forever.
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.
What is the next step for you?
I hope to be like Bill Gates, bro. With all the money in the world. Like Wayne, someday I want one of those kind of careers. Or Michael Jackson.
At what age do you drop the “Young” from your name?
I don’t think I’m gonna drop it, ’cause I want to be forever young. But if I had to…
What would you change it to?
My little niece always calls me Jeff the Rapper, so I might change it to that.
