- READ MORE: A beginner’s guide to… Young Thug
Speaking on an episode of Gillie Da Kid’s Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast, the rapper said that when he performs he has “30 or 40 songs that the whole stadium is gonna know,” before adding: “Jay-Z hasn’t got 30 songs like that.”
Thug quickly rolled back his comments after it was pointed out that Jay-Z does have a lot of anthems.
He added: “I’m just saying like, I know he do, he probably got 50 of them bitches, I”m not literally saying him. I’m saying n***** who you thinking … I seen n***** like, ‘Damn, they don’t know this song?’ I’m so scared to get boo’ed, I don’t even perform songs they won’t know.”
“Jay-Z don’t got 30 songs like that”

Another added: “25 years of rapping and Jay-Z don’t have 30 songs that a stadium knows and Young Thug does? Bruh…..cmon.”
Another shared a joke meme of Thug backtracking.
