Atlanta rapper Young Thug paid homage to the "King Of The South" when he gifted fellow native and hip-hop icon T.I. a rare customized watch. Pressed by T.I., Thug promised he had a similar gift for Andre 3000, which could be an olive branch after their recent mini-controversy.
Young Thug Puts T.I. In Exclusive Company
T.I. posted a video on Instagram of himself receiving the rare watch from Young Thug. There are apparently only 50 of these watches in the world, and Young Thug is giving them away to 50 people he loves.
“Just touched down back in the city & Maaaaan y’all look what My lil Brudda @thuggerthugger1 just did fa me … F*ckin Speechless. First Time EVER‼️ Truly appreciate it Kidddd”
Young Thug Has A Gift For Andre 3000
Thugger recently got flamed by the Internet for being disrespectful toward another Atlanta legend, Andre 3000 from OutKast. When Young Thug gifted T.I. his watch, Tip made sure Thug had one for Andre as well, perhaps to mend fences.
Young Thug Explains Why He Never Worked With Andre 3000
YT has made tracks with everyone in the A from Gucci Mane to Young Jeezy, Migos to Childish Gambino. But the Grammy-winning artist is missing one very prominent name on his list of hometown collaborators.
“I can’t rap you two Andre 3000 songs. I ain’t never paid attention to him. Never in my life.”
Young Thug’s Andre Vs. Elton John Comparison
Young Thug worked with music icon Elton John on a song called “High” a couple years ago. When T.I. brought up Elton John while trying to convince Young Thug to give Andre 3000 a chance, Thug responded in shocking manner.
“But the difference between Elton John and Andre is, to simplify it, Elton John likes to kiss a**, and Dre likes his a** kissed.”
