After Young Thug first started receiving recognition with ‘Stoner’, a lot of people were wondering where he got his style from and who he was influenced by. When asked who his favourite rappers were, he’d reply “Lil Wayne, Lil Wayne and Lil Wayne”.
Aside from a few photos snapped at clubs and the ‘Take Kare‘ record, there’s barely been any acknowledgement of Thug from Wayne’s side. That has changed now, however.
At a stop on his club tour, he had some words for fans:
I want y’all to do me a favour and stop listening to songs of n*ggas that pose naked on they motherf*cking album cover
UPDATE: Young Thug has responded via Instagram.
I understand that Lil Wayne is frustrated about his career and I feel him on that but this is my idol. I wouldn’t ever in my life swap words with him or beef with him about nothing. This is a person that I look up to. Ha ha.
