While Jay Z is still having a successful career as a rapper, Young Thug believes that Jigga Man might not be enjoying it.
“I don’t want to be 50 years old and rapping,” Thug told GQ recently. “I’m pretty sure nobody wants to do that. I’m pretty sure Jay Z don’t wanna rap right now.”
See, Thug thinks that 30 and 40-year-olds can’t have minors who listen to them. And even if the rappers are good, Thug says he won’t support them. “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,” Thug said. “By the time I turn that old, I ain’t gonna be doing what he’s doing.”
So, maybe he doesn’t want to be like Jay. So, who does he want to be like? Instead, Thug says he wants to be like Bill Gates, Lil Wayne or Michael Jackson.
Interestingly enough, when asked if he’ll ever take out “Young” from his name, the rapper said he wouldn’t because he wants “to be forever young,” which also happens to be the title of a Jay Z song.
