Young Thug is one of the biggest names in the rap game right now. There’s no denying that. The rapper recently made a startling yet bold revelation, saying he’s never put pen to paper when it comes to his rhymes.
Despite all of the chart-topping hits and bars he spits, Thugger has never written anything down.
“I’ve never written a lyric. Ever,” he told i-D magazine during an interview. He continued, “I really haven’t. I kind of just freestyle. I just go with it as it comes. I never really wrote anything down. I’m not patient enough to sit and write. It just takes a lot of my day.”
His admission came in response to a question about his favorite lyric he ever wrote. However, the 30-year-old did say he’d consider writing lyrics if he ends up behind bars again.
“Only time I’ve had the time to write lyrics down is when I’ve been incarcerated. Even if I just have to go to jail for a day or something. I don’t like writing and that’s the only way I can write; if I just got time on my hands and there’s nothing in the world I could do.”
The “City Girls” rapper went on to add that “Trying to kill these bastards like family don’t matter” lyrics from his 2017 song “Family Don’t Matter” happen to be his favorite.
