“We ain’t talking about streams, sales, none of that. We talking about anthems, we talking about songs they know. When I perform, I got 30-40 songs that the whole stadium gon’ know…. all 30 songs. Jay-Z ain’t got 30 songs like that, where the whole stadium finna sing.”

Young Thug quickly corrected his statement adding:

“I’m just saying like, I know he do, he probably got 50 of them b*tches.”

He then said he only performs songs that he knows the crow will know and enjoy.

“I’m so scared to get boo’ed, I don’t even perform songs they won’t know.”
