Young Thug just did a feature with RollingOut where he let the cat out of the bag on a potential future project with none other than Kanye West.
We’ve known for some time now that the two have been working together, presumably on records that will appear on both rappers’ solo albums due out later this year, but we’ve now learned that Yeezy wishes to do a full project with the upcoming artist from Atlanta. Check out what Thug had to say below.
“[Kanye] didn’t have a phone for like three or four years,” Young Thug says. “When I first met him, I went to his house and he was like, ‘We gotta keep in touch; here’s my email.’ But he came on tour with Travis Scott and me. [Kanye] said he has a phone now because he has a wife. So he had to get a phone. But he called me Bob Marley.
We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage.
He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out.’ 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!’ He’s a fan. So that leads back to me saying fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be.
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.”
And just for good measure, here’s the hilarious video of Kanye turning up to Young Thug’s “Danny Glover” record.
