Young Thug is a very polarizing figure in rap. His braggadocios bars and questionable antics have puzzled a lot of fans and artists. Still, Thugger has managed to somehow be on the tip of everyone’s tongues this year. Whether he was beefing with The Game, and Lil Wayne others, or he was simply making bangers like “Best Friend,” Thugger remained in the spotlight.
Here Are Ups and Downs For Young Thug in 2015
Young Thug Shades JAY Z
Back in February, Thugger was featured in GQ and spoke candidly about JAY Z and how he wouldn’t buy an album from him because of the huge disparity in age.
“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.”
Young Thug Claps At Lil Wayne
After teaming up together in 2014 for their collaboration “Take Kare,” everybody thought that the tandem of Wayne and Thug would continue to flourish over the next couple of months. In reality, beef ensued. After Wayne’s Tha Carter V was pushed back, Thugger announced two days later that he would release his mixtape the Tha Carter VI, in which he thought was a form of homage to his favorite rapper.
An exasperated Wayne voiced his disdain for Thugger’s decision and constantly spewed malice towards his direction. He lashed out at Thug during one of his shows when he said “ain’t no motherf**kin’ such thing as Carter 6.” Thug would later change the name to Barter 6 and bravely opt to perform in Wayne’s hometown of Hollygrove, New Orleans in support of his new project.
