Favorite Quotes from Young Thug

“In my world, of course, it don’t matter. You could be a gangster with a dress, you could be a gangster with baggy pants.”

“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.”

“I didn’t used to do shows, because I used to be so shy. We’d perform, and I’d be at the back, thinking of another song. I was so shy, I ain’t never getting in front of the camera; I would never get on stage.”

Tips for success from Young Thug

“I don’t want my kids saying, ‘My dad was a gangster, so I need to be a gangster. I would rather mine say, ‘My dad was a stunna, so I need to be a stunna.'”

“When you see them be successful, however small, you say to yourself, wow. And everything becomes possible. Never denigrate, to say we will not succeed.”

“I repeat it until it works. It is important to record, otherwise you lose ideas. That’s why I never stay away from the studio, I always [have] something to ask.”
