(AllHipHop News) Young Thug has been a rap enigma of sorts. His lyrics are often hard to decipher, he tends to wear women’s clothing, and he rarely gives interviews. The Atlanta-based rhymer did allow The Guardian to ask him questions, and the discussion revealed Thugger appears to be fine with both the criticism and praise hurled at him.

“I like everything that people say,” stated Thug. “No matter what they say. You gay, you a punk. You got a nice girlfriend, you’re ugly, you can’t rap, you’re the hardest.”
Thug’s team barred the interviewer from bringing up his issues with Lil Wayne or any legal situations, but the “Stoner” performer did touch on two of his mentors – Gucci Mane and Birdman. According to Thugger, he will always have respect for the two Southern rap moguls.
“It don’t matter how big you is – motherf*cker, this is Birdman, he has half a billion dollars. He call, you need to answer the phone,” said Thug. “It’s like, I’m just human. If Gucci’s calling your phone – the man’s a f*cking legend – why won’t you answer your phone? How could you ever think you’re bigger than him?”
