If you haven’t heard of Young Thug’s new mixtape please go listen to “Jeffrey” now. The songs on the mixtape are all named after some influential figure.
Ranging from, “Floyd Mayweather” to “Harambe”. (RIP)
He has a few features on there including Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, Gunna, Young Scooter, and Quavo to name a few. He has a song named after Wyclef Jean and also features Mr. Wyclef on the track named, “Kanye West.”
In a recent interview with Pigeons and Planes Wyclef praised Young Thug and named him a “modern Tupac.” He explained,
“He reminded me of a modern Tupac, in a sense — in a revolutionary sense… I mean that by, alright, you might see a thug, but his connection to history seemed similar to what Pac understood, of like, ‘This is who the Black Panthers are. Read this book, read that book.’ This kid understands.”
The compliments for Thugger don’t stop there though. Wyclef went on to compare the rapper to David Bowie himself.
“Thugga is a revolutionary fully get what he is doing. Because he is a revolutionary, he’s changing the thought pattern.”
