*Rapper Young Thug, at 22-years old, says Jay Z may be a good rapper and all, but he’s old.
“I don’t want to rap forever… I don’t want to be 50 years old and rapping, man. I’m pretty sure nobody wants to do that,” he told GQ magazine.
Jay Z is actually 45, but according to Young Thug, it falls within his cut-off bracket.
“If you’re 30, 40 years old, you’re not getting listened to by minors,” he said. “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. By the time I turn that old, I ain’t gonna be doing what he’s doing.
“I’m pretty sure Jay Z don’t wanna rap right now.”
When Young Thug becomes a rapper of a certain age, don’t expect him to remove the “Young” from his name.
“I don’t think I’m gonna drop it, ’cause I want to be forever young.” But! If he had to, he’d change it to “Jeff the Rapper,” which is what his little niece calls him.
Thug’s focus is to be “rich forever.” He hopes to be like Bill Gates “with all the money in the world,” and a career like Lil’ Wayne or Michael Jackson.
