Interview: Young Thug Says to GQ Magazine He’ll Never Buy A Jay-Z Album

GQ Young Thug

Young Thug is gracing the pages of GQ Magazine where he talks about his music, career and more. He also says he thinks Jay-Z has some of the best lyrics in the game, but he would never buy his album. Take a look at some of the interview with Young Thug below.

GQ: Are you a music lifer?
Young Thug: Yeah, I’ma be here forever. I don’t want to rap forever. But I want to be rich forever.

GQ: Why not rap forever?
Young Thug: I don’t want to be 50 years old and rapping, man. I’m pretty sure nobody wants to do that. I’m pretty sure Jay Z don’t wanna rap right now.

GQ: Why is it such a young man’s game?
Young Thug: If you’re 30, 40 years old, you’re not getting listened to by minors. Like, Jay Z has some of the sickest lyrics ever, but I would never buy his CD, just because of my age and because of his age. By the time I turn that old, I ain’t gonna be doing what he’s doing.

GQ: What is the next step for you?
Young Thug: I hope to be like Bill Gates, bro. With all the money in the world. Like Wayne, someday I want one of those kind of careers. Or Michael Jackson.

GQ: At what age do you drop the “Young” from your name?
Young Thug: I don’t think I’m gonna drop it, ’cause I want to be forever young. But if I had to…

GQ: What would you change it to?
Young Thug: My little niece always calls me Jeff the Rapper, so I might change it to that.
