Young Thug’s comments on the Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast continue to get him in hot water, this time with people in the United Kingdom. During a portion of the interview with Gillie Da Kid, Thugger was asked about his love for Florida rappers and what grabs his attention.
“It’s just that struggle, like Zoe shit,” Thug said. “It’s real when it come from them n-ggas. It ain’t no n-gga from muthafuckin’ London or Paris with with gotdamn green eyes talkin’ ’bout where he came up at. Man, yo ass prolly gotdamn been living in penthouse suites and hotels. You ain’t did nothin’.”
It didn’t take long for the criticism against UK rappers to return Thug’s way. On Sunday (January 3), the Slime & B hitmaker took to Instagram to clear up his statements and once more explain who he was referring to when stating there weren’t any gangsters in the UK.
“On this interview with my n0gga Gillie, when I was talkin’ about the fuckin’ overseas n-ggas? N-gga, I’m talkin’ ’bout the muthafuckin’ middle class white guys and shit like that,” he said. “N-gga I know real G’s out there, n-gga. I fuck with real G’s! My muthafuckin’ n-gga Gibbs, all these muthafuckin’ n-ggas, Skeptas, all them playas? I fuck with real G’s.
“These n-ggas handlin’ they business smokin’ shit. I got plenty gangsta stories about these n-ggas. I’m most definitely not talkin’ it’s not no real gangstas out there. N-ggas real deal out this muthafucka. My muthafuckin’ twin 21 got family out there steppin’! King steppin’! I know real steppers out there. There’s no way possible I’m saying there’s no G’s out there, them n-ggas handlin’ they business. I’m talkin’ middle class.”
The latest round of comments from Thug come less than a week after he went viral for carelessly suggesting he had more stadium anthems than JAY-Z before walking it all back.
Thug’s instantaneous backpedal on the Hov comments didn’t stop people from making it a hot button issue and defending the Brooklyn legend’s honor. On Tuesday (December 29), Thugger took to Instagram to do a little damage control, chalking the entire situation up to “internet shit.”
“Don’t have Jay-Z on me cause of this internet shit,” he wrote. “I was talking too fast but y’all know what I meant.”
