Well, if this ever comes to fruition, this collaborative effort might end up being one of the most polarizing projects of its time. In a newly-released interview with Rolling Out, Young Thug spoke at-length about linking up with Kanye West and their encounters. Speaking to the Atlanta outlet, Thugger said the following when speaking on his various high-profile co-signs:
Kanye didn’t have a phone for like three or four years,” Young Thug says. “When I first met him, I went to his house and he was like, ‘We gotta keep in touch; here’s my email.’ But he came on tour with Travis Scott and me. [Kanye] said he has a phone now because he has a wife. So he had to get a phone. But he called me Bob Marley. We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage. He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out.’ So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, ‘Let’s roll!’ He’s a fan.
Sounds like Kanye really, really rides for the eccentric Barter 6 rapper. The aforementioned interview with Rolling Out also featured many more gems concerning Young Thug worth reading about. From his more charitable moments to his relationship with Gucci Mane to self-respect and the importance of individuality, Young Thug delivered one of his best interviews yet.
