During a recent interview on Ebro Darden's Beats 1 radio show, Taylor Bennett had some really nice things to say about Young Thug. Bennett — who's had pleasant things to say about Thug in the past — spoke on the pair's relationship and shared that it's bigger than just getting together to make music in a studio.

Bennett explained that his Be Yourself EP was heavily inspired by Thug, down to the cover art — which Bennett says drew inspiration from Thug's 2016 project Jeffery.

"Young Thug is a huge inspiration on this project, and I don't mean that just off me solely linking up with him to do the track.." he shared with Ebro before going on to praise Thugger's work ethic. Bennett also shared that during a studio session, Thug played "over 300 fully finished" songs for him.
