Young Thug joined Travis Scott on his “Rodeo” tour this spring. Young Thug remembers when Kanye West stopped by the Los Angeles show and wanted to hear his music.
“He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out,'” Young Thug says to Rolling Out. “So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, ‘Let’s roll!’”
The former Rich Gang member says that West is a fan of his and his support helps keep the 23-year old focused.
“Fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be,” the Barter 6 rapper says. “Kanye is like my brother, but he’s a real fan. He bought me some Yeezys and went on eBay to get them for me. That’s motivation.”
