Young Thug is no stranger to controversy and has no shortage of confidence. In a Dazed interview for the Autumn 2015 New Agenda issue, out today, the Atlanta rapper reveals his working method: Really Fucking Quick.
“I think as I go,” he says. “I can’t remember 16 bars. Unless you write it, you can’t. I just do it bar for bar. I did a song in eight minutes. I thought everybody could write songs that fast. But working with a lot of them, they don’t. Wayne and Drake, it takes them so long to do a song. I understand why, because they want it to be perfect. But I think I can do a perfect song in ten minutes. I did ‘Danny Glover’ in eight minutes. ‘Stoner’ took me almost an hour.”
Nicki Minaj was right, Thug does say the “most reckless shit”. The comments possibly open up a fresh can of worms regarding Drake’s creative processes. Unless you’ve been on a distant, faraway planet over the past month, you’ll be fully aware that Meek Mill (perhaps ill-advisedly) began a war of words, raps and memes with the Toronto rapper over the claim that he doesn’t write his own verses and employs a squad to help him.
Now Thug claims he takes ages, too? He does however speculate that it’s because Drake’s a perfectionist when it comes to his art, which is hard to criticise. It’s interesting to hear him talk favourably (or at least not unfavourably) about Lil Wayne, his ex-friend and former idol whose breakup has been spectacular and public.
