Reggae star Bob Marley is considered an iconic music figure worldwide. Kanye West allegedly feels Young Thug has a legendary sound like the “Natural Mystic” singer.
Young Thug revealed Yeezy made this comparison during an interview with Rolling Out. Yeezy reportedly requested Thugger stream some unreleased music for him when he said this. Ye even said he would be willing to do an album with Thug:
“[Kanye] didn’t have a phone for like three or four years,” Young Thug says. “When I first met him, I went to his house and he was like, ‘We gotta keep in touch; here’s my email.’ But he came on tour with Travis Scott and me. [Kanye] said he has a phone now because he has a wife. So he had to get a phone. But he called me Bob Marley. We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage. He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out.’ So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, ‘Let’s roll!’ He’s a fan. So that leads back to me saying fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be. Kanye is like my brother, but he’s a real fan. He bought me some Yeezys and went on eBay to get them for me. That’s motivation.”
