Young Thug Thinks Lil Wayne Wants to Be Like Him

Thugger’s GQ interview is pretty weird.

Published September 29, 2015

At this point, Young Thug might be stalking Lil Wayne. The Rich Gang rapper already named his album after Tha Carter series, and now he thinks Tunechi wants to live in his shoes. 

The life swap theory came out in Thug's GQ interview, addressing Wayne's tour bus shooting. “F**k no,” replied Thugger, when asked about the incident police believe to be the work of his tour manager, Carlton Winfrey

Thugger also explained why the Weezy beef doesn’t bother him too much. “Maybe if I was a peasant it would. But of course it bothers me some, because that’s what I always wanted. It was so weird: I always wanted to be in the studio with Wayne. I would tell Birdman to bring him over, but he never f**king came.”

That failed studio visit was five years ago, before Thug and Wayne apparently switched places. “That was when I was Wayne. And he’s me now,” said the Rich Gang member. “I feel like if he had the chance to be himself or me, he’d be me. If I had the chance to be myself or him, I’d be him. That man is the greatest. If we had the biggest problem in the world, I’d still say he’s the best rapper in the f**king world. Everybody knows nobody raps better than the f**king boss.”

For the remainder of interview the “Power” rapper goes into his new album, wearing women’s clothing, and Drake vs. Meek Mill. “Tough month for Drake, tough life for the other guy,” said Thug.
