Young Thug Still Thinks Lil Wayne Is “The Greatest”, Despite Beef

Young Thug

Young Thug came into hip-hop idolizing Lil Wayne, but it's clear, the rap star doesn't feel the same about the rap newcomer.

In an interview with GQ, Thugger admits that it bothers him that Weezy doesn't like him.

"Maybe if I was a peasant it would," he told the mag. "But of course, it bothers me some, because that's what I always wanted. It was so weird: I always wanted to be in the studio with Wayne. I would tell Birdman to bring him over, but he never f*cking came."

Later, Thug says Lil Wayne would rather be Young Thug than himself at this point in life.

"I feel like if he had the chance to be himself or me, he'd be me," the rapper explained. "If I had the chance to be myself or him, I'd be him. That man is the greatest. If we had the biggest problem in the world, I'd still say he's the best rapper in the f*cking world. Everybody knows nobody raps better than the f*cking boss."

Despite their issues, it appears Thugger still has a lot of respect for Lil Wayne.
