Young Thug, who has faced speculations about his sexuality before, shares his two cents on Lil Nas X decision to publicly come out as gay.
In a recent interview on hip-hop YouTube channel No Jumper, the Young Thug shared that the young rapper will only receive “judgment” from coming out.
“I feel like he probably shouldn’t have told the world. He shouldn’t have told the world because it’s like, these days, motherf—ers just, it’s just all judgment. Like, motherf—ers just judging. It ain’t even about the music no more. Once you found out he was gay, everybody, soon as the song come on now, everybody, like, ‘This gay ass n—.’ N—s don’t even care to listen to the song no more.”
The rapper later backtracked on his comments and clarified that coming out “wasn’t a bad idea”
“I just feel like, he young, and it’s like backlash can come behind anything,” he continued. “So it’s like, it wasn’t a bad idea, and it was most definitely the best time to do it, during Pride. That was the best time to do it, that was a G’s move. But it’s like, he young, so I know what he going to be dealing with, with it in his mind, I dealt with this s— before. I know what he going to be dealing with. So that’s why I was like, f—, he should have never said that, he should have never told them.”
The rapper also expressed his adoration for Lil Nas X as a new rapper saying:
“I don’t give a f— what they rap about, they don’t got to make sense, they don’t got to rap about the struggle. Nothing to me. I just adore, I just adore what they’re thinking.”
