Nowadays rappers are trying their hardest to outdo one another. Some rappers even go as far as denouncing legendary emcees that have paved the way for their success. Recently, Young Thug made some pretty brash comments about HipHop legends Jay-Z, Andre 3000 and T.I. Of course, many of his statements didn’t go over well with social media. After dealing with some heavy internet backlash, Young Thug changed his tune. The rapper gifted the legendary emcees rare and expensive watches. Guess it pays to kiss up to your HipHop’s founding fathers, huh Young Thug?
When You’re Wrong, You’re Wrong
Young Thug is no stranger to making controversial statements. After releasing his latest statements regarding HipHop icons Andre 3000 and T.I, the rapper might be cashing in his last check. Young Thug faced immediate backlash for his comments made about the iconic emcees. Some even suspected that he lied about his accusations against Andree 3000, who he claims enjoys “people kissing up to him” on T.I’s expediTlously podcast. Previously, the “Danny-Glover” rapper got dragged by social media for claiming to have more hit songs than Jay-Z. Little does Young Thug realize that these legendary icons helped make him the rapper that he is today. Without them, he’d be nowhere. Don’t slap the hand that feeds you.
Young Thug Kisses Up To HipHop Legends
The rapper soon backtracked all the insensitive comments he made about the HipHop icons and decided to make nice with them. The 29-year-old went as far as gifting them with expensive gifts. On Monday, T.I took to Instagram to show off up the pricey custom watch Thugger bought him. According to the “Bad Bad Bad” rapper, only 50 of the rare beauties exist in the world. He has plans to gift his loved ones with the watches as well. Though, everyone, including T.I, wanted to know if Young Thug planned to “kiss up” to Andre 3000, too. “Yes, of course!” Thugger wrote back, confirming that the Outkast leadman would receive one of the custom watches as well. We’re still wondering if Jay-Z will receive a watch, too? At the moment, he’s only kissing up to the Atlanta-based rappers.
