That's the news Thugger revealed on Thursday (Jun. 25), during an interview with Rolling Out, where he also discussed how his bond with Yeezus has evolved.
“[Kanye] didn’t have a phone for like three or four years,” Thug - who posed for the mag's cover with his fiancee Jerrika Karlae - said. “When I first met him, I went to his house and he was like, ‘We gotta keep in touch; here’s my email.’
"But he came on tour with Travis Scott and me," he continued. "[Kanye] said he has a phone now because he has a wife. So he had to get a phone. But he called me Bob Marley. We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage.
"He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out,'" he added. "So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, ‘Let’s roll!’"
To Thugger, Kanye isn't just a multi-platinum rap star. He's also a supporter.
"He’s a fan," Thug explained. "So that leads back to me saying fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be. Kanye is like my brother, but he’s a real fan. He bought me some Yeezys and went on eBay to get them for me. That’s motivation."
That makes sense. After all, we did see him wildin' out to Young Thug's "Danny Glover" once - even if Kim K. wasn't impressed.
Even if the Thugger/West album doesn't come to fruition, something tells us we'll at least get a collaboration from these two. What do you think their work together will sound like? Are you excited for this potential LP? Let us know in the comments.
