Young Thug Speaks On His Appreciation For His Idol Lil Wayne

Young Thug and his record label boss Lyor Cohen recently stopped by Ebro‘s Beats 1 Radio show on Apple Music in New York City for an interview that you can listen to after the jump below.

At the 7:55 mark, Thugger speaks on his appreciation for his “idol” Lil Wayne, knowing all of his music (even his songs now), and always paying attention to what he has ever said!

“Honestly I always paid attention to Lil Wayne despite everything that’s going on with him and everything. I always paid attention to him, close attention. He’s always my idol, he still my idol. I still know all his music, everything that he’s putting out now, I still know everything, I pay attention to him. I think when he came in as a Hot Boy, he was like a street nigga, like everybody in the streets can adjust to it. But you know as he grew, he started like… tight clothes and rock star… so I guess it went the same path, cause I really always paid attention to him, so I guess it went the same way but I never wanted to live or be like him, I always just paid attention like he’s serious… he’s iconic. I always paid attention to him like that, I never paid attention to him as I’d die if I don’t be like him.”

  • RealestShrimpDaddyFanBoi

    I literally have no respect for young thug after the drama played out with wayne on C5. While it was occurring never did he stand up as a man and say. Ok. This is wrong. Only after he released the damn project, realized the numbers and everything sunk in. There’s one true Carter. I’m actually disgusted he’s been given the privilege of having his own damn post on this. real. site.

    • RealestShrimpDaddyFanBoi

      And stunna. psh… mixed emotions given the fact that their relationship was so solid. but the real question remains – was it really..

  • T – WayneYM©#FreeC5

    Lol. Yo parents dont get down wit the green? Mines don’t(I could give 2 fucks wat my pops think, he left when I was in elementary). Hopefully nobody else found yo stash that summer lol.

    • They asked him something about letting the black community down.

      • BaltimoreBoy410

        That means he gotta act like an 8 yr old? B a professional end of story. Slouched over wit the face of a toddler com’on now. On top of that he gave up. Dude is a hoe point blank. Yea he did let the black community down wit childish that behavior smh. Hold ya head like a man
