Gunna just declared Young Thug the best rapper of all time.
During a chat with Young Thug for Interview Magazine, Gunna named the founder of YSL Records the best rapper alive.
“Who is the best rapper?” Thug asks.
“It would have to be you, Slime, on god,” the 26-year-old rapper replies to his mentor. “You make the most songs out of everybody. Anybody can rap and make songs, but you’re making real songs. It’s hard to do that. I understand it because I make songs, too.”
It’s obvious, his love for Thug has never been a secret. The rhymer has often cited Slime as a significant influence.
The both rhymers relationship goes back to 2015, after the “Drip Too Hard” rhymer’s uncle introduced the two Georgia boys.
“I met [Young Thug] the day he shot the ‘With That’ video in my neighborhood,” Gunna said. “My uncle called me like, ‘We got Thug out here, he shooting a video. Come down here, make sure he’s good.’ We locked in from there.”
After Gunna’s uncle passed, the two sparked a tight-knit friendship that eventually led to Gunna signing a deal with Thugger’s Young Stoner Life Records and 300 Entertainment.
Since he started working with Thugger, they’ve both crafted lots of crazy sounds together. Lately, Gunna came through with his sophomore album, entitled Wunna. On the 18-track album, Thugger makes two appearances, featuring on songs “Dollaz on My Head” and “Far.”
