This Friday, the music industry will witness a minor milestone: the release of a new Young Thug album. The Atlanta rapper is getting ready to release P*NK, which has been a long time coming after he announced it during an NPR Tiny Desk performance during the summer. Thug sat down for an interview with Complex, where he discussed Kanye West and how he ended up on his tenth album, Donda.
“I just hit Kanye like, ‘Bro, if I ain’t on the album, we are not speaking,’” he said to Complex’s Erik Skelton. He explained his take on the legendary superstar. “What n****s don’t know about Kanye West is he’s a real n***a,” Thug said. “He’s a billionaire, and all that sh*t is cool, but in real life, he could survive in the trenches. If he go to the trenches, the jungle, he could survive. He a real n***a.”
Thug has only released one single from the album, “Tick Tock,” thus far.
