Before relating to Young Thug’s upbringing, Birdman stated that those at Cash Money have come to embrace Young Thug as a little brother.
“I know he a big fan of Wayne. And we embrace Thug [as] our little brother,”
“We come from the projects, New Orleans. That lifestyle we come from. I wanted to do better for me. To do better for them. To do better for us. When I see Thug he come from that same cloth. From these streets. And I see an opportunity to help him change not just his life, [but] his family’s life, his homies’ life. And make a difference in this world. And it’s through music, something that I’m powerful in. And I wouldn’t do nothing but bless him in every way possible. I’mma do everything within my powers to make him as big as he possibly can be and want to be.”
