Did Kanye West Compare Young Thug To Bob Marley?

By HHL Editors

Kanye West is known for his grandiose comparisons.

They usually involve 'Ye likening himself to legendary historical figures. However, if Young Thug is to be believed, West also dropped a pretty amazing comp on the controversial Atlanta emcee.

"[Kanye] didn’t have a phone for like three or four years," Thugger told Rolling Out magazine. "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."
If this wasn't Kanye West, we'd call BS. But given 'Ye's tendency to exaggerate and his history of support for Thugger, we could see the quote being accurate.

So is Young Thug and Bob Marley the most ridiculous comparison ever, or just garden-variety ridiculous?
