Young Thug has about 15 more years or less before he hangs up his rap jersey. He is setting himself up for a lifetime of success. The rapper said he wants to leave the rap game before he reaches a certain age.
Alongside Gunna, Young Thug is the new cover star for Billboard this month. He revealed to Billboard in a recent interview that he doesn’t plan on always being an artist. He has his sights set on other career paths and he also knows that in ten years, he will need to help his kids set themselves up for their best lives.
“I just don’t want to be a certain age and still rapping. I’d rather start doing a different thing. It ain’t even about nobody else, it’s just about me and my integrity and how I want to be looked at”.
“Why would I be 45 or 50 years old trying to record albums? When I’m 50 years old, I know 80% of the world is motherf*cking 15 to 24. What the f*ck am I trying to make an album at 50 for? Why? I’ll sell a song to Chanel when I’m 45 or 50. I’ll send three or four songs to Balmain”.
“As far as trying to rap, f*ck no, I ain’t doing it. It’s not [that I have] a problem with it, it’s a problem with me doing it. I don’t want to do it at that point. I got other business and other sh*t to be doing. I got kids that gonna need more attention from me in 10 years”.
Gunna, who was also being interviewed chimed in stating “I don’t want him to stop no time soon”. His comment regarding Thug’s future retirement makes perfect sense considering the two have collaborated on multiple songs, including their Billboard charting single “pushin P”.
