Young Thug: I'd Never Buy Jay Z Music Because He's Too Old

By HHL Editors

Young Thug thinks Hip Hop is a young man's game.

In a interview with QQ, Thugger called himself a "music lifer." But the 22-year old then clarified that he didn't see himself rapping "forever."

That lead to this exchange:

Why not rap forever? I don’t want to be 50 years old and rapping, man. I’m pretty sure nobody wants to do that. I’m pretty sure Jay Z don’t wanna rap right now. Why is it such a young man’s game? If you’re 30, 40 years old, you’re not getting listened to by minors. Like, Jay Z has some of the sickest lyrics ever, but I would never buy his CD, just because of my age and because of his age. By the time I turn that old, I ain't gonna be doing what he’s doing.
For the record, Jay Z is 45.

What do you think about middle aged artists like Hov, Eminem and Snoop?

Do you think they'll be like the Rolling Stones and keep going well into their golden years? Or is the Thugger right that they should give it a rest?
