Almost every week, Young Thug is backtracking on comments he made during a podcast.
Last week, Thug appeared on Gillie Da Kid and Wallo267’s Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast. He had already landed himself in hot water for his comments he made about Jay-Z not having 30 songs he could perform during the interview, but he also made comments about rappers overseas.
“It ain’t no n***a from muthafuckin’ London or Paris with goddamn green eyes talkin’ ’bout where he came up at,” Thug said during the interview. “Man, yo ass probably goddamn been living in penthouse suites and hotels. You ain’t did nothin’.”
Thug then took to Instagram to clarify his comments, saying he wasn’t talking about Black rappers but the “middle-class white guys” in Europe.
“On this interview with my n***a Gillie, when I was talkin’ about the fuckin’ overseas n***as? N***a, I’m talkin’ ’bout the muthafuckin’ middle-class white guys and shit like that,” he said.
“N***a, I know real G’s out there, n***a. I fuck with real G’s! My muthafuckin’ n***a Giggs, all these muthafuckin’ n***as, Skeptas, all them playas? I fuck with real G’s,” he added.
He then brought up 21 Savage, who the whole hip hop community was surprised to find out was actually from London and not Atlanta.
“My muthafuckin’ twin 21 got family out there steppin’! King steppin’! I know real steppers out there. There’s no way possible I’m saying there’s no G’s out there, them n***as handlin’ they business. I’m talkin’ middle class.”
Young Thug has been getting a lot of flack on social media about his recent comments. First, it was the statement he made about Andre 3000, saying that he’s “never paid attention to him.” Then he said Jay-Z doesn’t have 30-40 songs that could have a whole stadium jumping.
“30 or 40 songs that the whole stadium is gonna know,” before adding: “Jay-Z hasn’t got 30 songs like that”.
