If you read Young Thug’s interview in GQ magazine, your take away might be that he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer. We’re not trying to throw shade, but we are trying to make sense of some of his answers.
When asked if he’d like to rap forever, his answer was simple enough. “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.” Jay Z just turned 45 in December, not 50, but we’re going to let that pass since we get the gist of what Thug was implying.
“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.” Kanye West is 37, Nicki Minaj is 32, Wale is 30, Pusha T is 37, 2 Chainz is 37 and Lil Wayne is 32, but maybe no teenagers or people in their twenties are listening to their music.
Asked what his next step is, Young Thug, 22, responded that he hopes “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.” This is where things just really start to make no sense at all.
Lil Wayne is a successful rapper, but he and Jay Z are eating at two completely different tables. Hov’s net worth is estimated to be around $560 million, while Wayne’s is rumored to sit at a comfortable $135 Million Dollars. Michael Jackson’s financial struggles were well documented so we’re not sure he’s the ideal person Thug should be trying to mimic as far as dollars. In fact, the rapper he should be trying to model his career after as far as money goes is Jay Z.
