Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman recently appeared on set at the Young Thug cover shoot withComplex magazine and spoke with the publication about his hopes for the Atlanta rapper.
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.”
