Young Thug Admits ‘I Would Never Buy Jay Z’s CD’
But the first question asked by interviewer Eric Sullivan is how long Mr. Thugger plans to make music.
"I'ma be here forever. I don't want to rap forever, but I want to be rich forever," the Atlanta rapper says. "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."
The 22-year-old respects the legendary Brooklyn lyricist, but says he can't entirely relate to his music. Hip-hop for the youth, according to Thug -- we think many would definitely disagree with him.
"If you're 30, 40 years old, you're not getting listened to by minors," he explains. "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."
The rhymer's plans are to eventually cash out of the music business, but if he doesn't, he wants to be considered one of the greats.
"I hope to be like Bill gates, bro. With all the money in the world," says the brash artist. "Like Wayne, someday, I want one of those kind of careers, or Michael Jackson."
Those are some big shoes to fill.
