Do you know why they call him Slime?
Young Thug’s gambling habits have been revealed by his cohort/director Be El Be in a new interview with GQ. “There are two Thugs,” he said. “One a rapper and one a gambler. This ain’t Thug, it’s Lil Jeff. I think he like shooting dice more than rapping.”
Be El Be continued: “I saw him win a $100,000 watch a couple weeks ago. Lost all this money and then took it all and the watch, tricked them. He’s slick. That’s why they call him Slime.”
The interview also revealed Thug’s unlikely dream collaboration. “But you know who I want to do a song with no matter what? Adele. Shit’d be over,” he said.
The Atlanta rapper also reflected on how much his life has changed since having children: “They ain’t easy. It be like, ‘If I could take this back? Yes, what the fuck was I thinking!”It’s not even taking care of the kids. The main part is you won’t be able to do what you always did. That’s the number one rule to having a kid: You can’t be who you were.”
Oh, and he wants Bob Marley and Kanye West to play at his wedding.
The title of Young Thug’s latest mixtape, I’m Up, was borne from online beef with Future.
Young Thug’s very first UK show last August was captured on camera by a FACT photographer.
