Touching on his current list of favorite rappers, the Young Stoner Life founder first named his own YSL collective as No. 1 followed by Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert and Drake. Thugger took a moment to think about who to give the last spot to but eventually split it between Future and 21 Savage. He explained, however, that he would have chosen the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Bas if the list was based on lyricism. “It’s about everything. Everybody who I named got everything,” he shared.
Elsewhere in the interview, Young Thug explained the comments he made about JAY-Z in his 2020 interview with Million Dollaz Worth of Game, where he noted that Hov doesn’t have “30 songs” that a stadium can sing along to. “You were basically saying you got a lot of f*cking records,” host Gillie Da King said. “Basically that’s all I was saying,” Thugger agreed, “I just used his name because he the biggest ni**a in the world to me.”
He added, “I just used his name, to let the world know, like, ‘Yo, I got just as many hits as the biggest ni**a in the world.’ I’m doing two hours on stage, for real. I don’t remember my last hour show… and I don’t do too much talking.”
