Almost as soon as he started doing interviews Young Thug gained the reputation of being a terrible subject. That’s well earned, but just because he answers damn near every question with just one or two words, and sometimes none at all. Oddly though, just because Thugger is awful at answering questions doesn’t mean he doesn’t make for an entertaining interview as he showed in his sit-down with Tim Westwood.
In just eight short minutes Thug discusses a myriad of topics from his current legal troubles (“I thought you had too many cases.” “Me Too.”) to The Carter 5 (“Uh ooooooh.”) and he even announces that his Slim Season mixtape with London On Da Track will be a series and not a one-off. However, the most noteworthy moment of interview is easily when Thug makes it a point to call his boss at 300 Entertainment Lyor Cohen a bitch. Over, and over.
Tim Westwood: Put (300) on the map baby, ’cause not a lot was moving (at 300) to be honest Jeff.
Young Thug: Oh wow. You heard that Lyor, son of a b*tch. B*TCH!
TW: Yes, Lyor. A lot of false starts baby.
YT: Did you hear that? B*tch. Did you f*cking hear it?
He eventually finished up with “You heard what he said Lyor? You haven’t had anything big over there in a minute, until I came in.” It was probably all in jest because he calls Atlantic and 300 “family” immediately after that but I’d imagine Lyor screamed at a few interns after he saw this one.
The latest rumored release date for Young Thug’s debut album is Hy!£UN35 September 24th and while that may not be final it is expected to come at some point this fall, especially with him kicking off his first solo tour this month.
