Charlamagne Tha God Said Young Thug Is “No Lil Wanye” (Video)
Charlamagne Tha God thinks Young Thug should stop acting like Wayne, and also Rich Homie Quan should really stop doing that dance he be doing.
On a recent episode of VladTV, Vlad and Power 105.1 radio host Charlamagne Tha God engaged in a civil but heated debate on the merits of Young Thug’s music, with Vlad advocating for Barter VI and Charlamagne refusing to listen to it.
“I have no desire to hear it,” said Tha God. “I have nothing against Young Thug. [I] don’t know the young man. I’m just not interested in his music. I don’t know what the fuck he’s saying. It’s just not for me. I’m 34 years old, I like rappers that I can actually understand [and] rappers that can articulate very well. The shit he’s on, I ain’t on it.”
‘Magne then shared some words of advice for Thugger: quit acting like Wayne.
“You’re playing yourself,” he said. “You’re setting yourself up for failure, Young Thug, and I’mma tell you why. Be the best Young Thug you can be because people fuck with Young Thug. People like Young Thug… whatever fan base you do have, keep capitalizing off of that and keep being the best Young Thug you can be. You can’t be that young man Lil Wayne.
“He’s no Lil Wayne… Listen, it’s just not in him. Lil Wayne’s a legend. We gotta start giving Wayne the respect he deserves… Carter is Lil Wayne’s last name, it’s an iconic series, and you just jump out there and say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna call my album Tha Carter 6,’ that’s just corny to me.”
When asked by Vlad about Rich Gang, Char’mander said he actually prefers the stylings of Rich Homie Quan to those of Thug.
“I like Rich Homie Quan better than Young Thug,” he said. “I think Rich Homie Quan is actually dope. I like Rich Homie Quan. I hate that dance he be doing. I don’t know what the fuck is going on with that dance.”
