Juice WRLD chopped it up with Complex last week for an interview to share his thoughts on Young Thug comparing him to a “2006 to 2009 Lil Wayne“.
After revealing he has “a very big appreciation and admiration of Lil Wayne“, the Chicago rapper mentioned that Wayne is #1 in his top 5 favorite artists of all time list.
You can see exactly what Juice WRLD had to say about Tunechi below. If you recall to last year, he also announced that he wants to “make a song with Wayne so bad”, especially one like Tune‘s “Throw It In The Bag” freestyle off No Ceilings!
Young Thug previously compared you to a “2006 to 2009 Lil Wayne.” Would you say that’s a fair comparison?
On a day-to-day, I know I make a lot of harmonies and my music is very rock-influenced. Wayne is one of my favorite rappers. I have a very big appreciation and admiration of Lil Wayne. He changed the game when he came in the game. I still think to this day, when he was in his prime, prime, he was the best rapper alive. So, that means a lot.
During your Hot Ones episode at ComplexCon, you told us your top 5 rappers from Chicago, but who are your overall top 5 favorite artists?
Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, this rock band named Escape The Fate, and… I’m trying to think of the last one. Honestly, the last one, I would have to go with Future.
