Young Thug met up with Kanye West in Los Angeles this past spring, during Travi$ Scott’s “Rodeo” tour… during which the two agreed to do an album together.
In an interview with Rolling Out, Thugger recalled his encounter with Yeezus.
“He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out,’ ” said the rapper. “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!’ ”
Young Thug went on to say that encounters like this help him stay focused on motivated to continue on.
“Fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be,” Thugger said. “Kanye is like my brother, but he’s a real fan. He bought me some Yeezys and went on eBay to get them for me. That’s motivation.”
