Young Thug Speaks on 'Best Friend' Controversy & Plies Beef

By Sermon

We're at a point where Young Thug interviews are becoming less rare and more of a routine. He stopped by DJ Holiday's radio show to discuss his newest mixtape, Slime Season, his beef with Plies, and the controversy with Tokyo Vanity, the viral video star who claims Thugger stole Best Friend from her.

On the topic of 'Best Friend,' Thug says that he was going to put "inspired by Tokyo Vanity" in the video next to the director's credits, but it slipped his mind. At the time, he wasn't aware she had dissed him and accused him of stealing the concept.

Additionally, Thug spoke about Plies and how he's trying to make memes instead of raps.

"Only reason I was frustrated with him was because he’s a 40-year-old man, he knows better. Like, You’re a rapper and you’re trying to turn into a comedian, fuck is you doing? You’re putting a kid cussin’ on your page, that ain’t cool. You’re tryin’ too hard to be funny."
He also said he tried to respond privately to Plies before the Instagram back and forth videos.
