Andre 3000 and Young Thug are two of the biggest and most iconic rappers to have come out of Atlanta. One could say that 3000’s eccentric style might have influenced Young Thug. One also might have wondered why the two never collaborated. Well, Young Thug revealed why and also aired out his feelings on the legendary rapper.
Thugger sat down with T.I. for the latter’s ExpediTIously Podcast, and revealed why the two never did a collaboration together. “I can’t rap you two Andre 3000 songs. I ain’t never paid attention to him, never in my life,” he said to.
T.I. then asked Thug why he has a record with Elton John but not with a legend who is from the same city. Thug then explained the difference between Elton John and Andre 3000. “Elton John like to kiss ass, André like his ass kissed,” he said.
T.I. came to 3000’s defense, calling him an ally, and Thug disagreed. “No. He’s who ally? Yeah fuckin’ right. Why you don’t rap like him? You don’t talk like him, dress like him, look like him. You ain’t trying to portray none of that.”
