Young Thug is a big fan of Chance The Rapper, and was featured on Chance's Coloring Book mixtape.
Thugger was asked about his musical buddy on the BET Awards' red carpet, and his response was a little unusual.
"They been sleeping. I think they gonna always sleep on him. He's gonna die like Prince. He's gonna die a slept on legend," Thug said of Chance while speaking to Hip Hollywood.Now the interviewer did prompt the whole "slept on" thing. And we're not entirely sure why she did since Coloring Book has been one of the most critically acclaimed and (relatively for a "tape") commercially successful projects of the year.
Then Young Thug made it all the odder by saying Prince -- who sold over 100 million albums and is considered a pop/rock virtuoso -- died "slept on."
Or maybe "slept on" means something different down South.
