Young Thug On Kanye West: He’s “Like 50 Shades Of Gre”"

“He’s interesting.”

January 26, 2016

Young Thug announced yesterday that he's planning to release a new mixtape at the end of next week. He followed that today with a lengthy interview on Sway In The Morning. Topics covered include his disputes, past and present, with Plies, the Game, Rich Homie Quan, and Lil Wayne.


The conversation turns to Kanye West around the 17-minute mark. "Kanye's like 50 Shades of Grey. He's interesting. You want to be like, 'I want to be around him, let's see.' He's interesting and he's really into music, he really is. He don't interview you or nothin,' he's just like, 'come on, listen to these beats, listen to these songs, I might put these out.' He lets you just—he opens up fast... I think he's a guy almost every man would want to be, or would want to be like, or would want to be in that direction, including me. He's cool, caring. He has a real work ethic. If I was in his position, I'd still work, but I wouldn't work as hard as him. He work[s] every day like he's an upcoming rapper. He's serious."

Sway then asked Thug if he's planning a collaborative project with Kanye. (Thug's collaborator Be El Be recently hinted in since-deleted tweets that Thug might appear on SWISH.) "He made me sign some kind of papers, so I don't know if I can tell," Thug said with a laugh. "Me and him got something going on. Of course. A lot of things going on."

Look for Slime Season 3 February 5.
