For its latest Winter 2018 cover story, Interview Magazine has chosen designer Virgil Abloh to interview Atlanta star Young Thug.

Throughout the exclusive interview, both creatives delve deep into their respective creative processes. For Thug, the musician opens up about his career thus far stating he “spends maybe 16 hours a day in studio” and has recorded around 15,000 songs. On the other-hand, Abloh touches upon his upcoming projects, and more specifically, what he has in mind for Louis Vuitton‘s upcoming collection. “My next Louis Vuitton collection is going to be based on Michael Jackson, and when I have Michael singing in the background,” Virgil states.
