Published Jun 26, 2015Kanye West has always got a large amount of projects on the go, and now there's potentially another to add to the list. If the rumours are to be believed, Yeezy's got an album on the way with Young Thug.
Thugger is featured in a new cover story via Rolling Out magazine, and in the interview he revealed that Kanye West wants to make a full collaborative album. He also said Kanye West affectionately refers to him as Bob Marley.
Thug also explained that Kanye West gifted him a pair of Yeezy sneakers. Unfortunately, since they were sold out, Kanye reportedly purchased a pair on eBay.
Read Young Thug's full quote below.
[Kanye] didn't have a phone for like three or four years. When I first met him, I went to his house and he was like, 'We gotta keep in touch; here's my email.' But he came on tour with Travis Scott and me. [Kanye] said he has a phone now because he has a wife. So he had to get a phone. But he called me Bob Marley. We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage. He had a Beats Pill and was like, 'I wanna hear all of your music in the world that's not out.' So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, 'Let's roll!' He's a fan. So that leads back to me saying fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be. Kanye is like my brother, but he's a real fan. He bought me some Yeezys and went on eBay to get them for me. That's motivation.
Meanwhile, the prolific Thug also recently dropped "Money," a new track produced by London on Da Track. Listen to the new song below.
