Thug cleared the air by saying, “I never understood how could it go so far, we were just talking sh*t. And I was kind of young back then.”
Charlemagne continues by giving him accolades for his extended stint in the music industry. Surprisingly, Char addresses a faltered prediction he made on Vlad TV 10 years ago. He had sided with the possibility that Rich Homie Quan would outlast Thug in the industry. Thug was enthused but jokingly asked, “How you feel about that?”
On this insider, the rapper also let the audience in on the recording of his latest album Punk. He addressed accusations that he copied Kanye’s idea to require one color scheme at either’s listening party. Throughout the interview, the rapper is very calm and expressive to all questions about the hosts. He gives insight into his substantial relationship with fellow Atlanta rapper Lil Baby.
