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.”
