Young Thug recently toured Europe and did some interesting overseas press in the process.
After performing at Le Bataclan in Paris, Thugga did a rare in-depth interview for a series called “Mon Entourage” in the same venue that ISIS operatives killed 130 people in November. During the 22-minute interview he announced he’s working on mixtapes with Migos, Fetty Wap and Post Malone.
“I’m bringing out a mixtape with the Migos, I’m bringing out a mixtape with Fetty Wap, I’m bringing out a mixtape with Post Malone,” he said when asked about forthcoming music. “All of them are done it’s just like four songs left on one of them. But all of them are done. So there’s like 50 more songs.”
Midway through the 12th minute of the video, the Atlanta native was asked about Andre 3000 and his fan hood for Thug.
“Yeah that’s crazy,” he replied. “We from the same town but that’s crazy. He a legend, a real legend. That’s like Michael Jackson boy. That nigga did a tour and he packed every place out. [People were] sleeping outside to see it.”
Also during the interview, Young Thug talked about being a father, why he doesn’t do that many interviews and what he likes most in life. He also says he sees his career ending up as big as Michael Jackson’s.
