An interview with Young Thug surfaced today on the French media site Clique. (Clique interviewed Kanye earlier this year.) Thug is cogent and frank in a wide-ranging conversation that covers his childhood, his creative process, his appreciation for Tupac, and his views on reincarnation. The rapper also contributes his thoughts on Donald Trump: "What laws is he gonna pass? You can walk around naked?... The president? Y'all gon' clown Obama like that? After him, they gon' let a fucking punk come? No."
But the best section of the interview is when Thug is asked about his alien origins. "I'm not from here," he notes. "You heard of the new earth that they found? It's a new earth, they just found it, it's ten times bigger than earth, but it's just like earth. It looks identical, everything is the same... it looks just like earth though, so they call it earth. I'm probably from there." He thinks he gets along with Kanye because 'Ye is also from that planet. "We identical," Thug says. "I don't compare myself to nobody."
