Young Thug says he has a lot of respect for Boosie because the rapper did his time in prison and never snitched.
“I call Boosie a real-life gangsta. Boosie been slingin’ since he was 12, 13, man. That’s a real gangsta. Got caught, did the time, didn’t tell on nobody. Beat that shit, came home like a man. Still gonna handle his business to this day, if it ever comes toward him. That’s a gangsta — there ain’t too many of them,” he told Gillie Da Kid.
He continued: “My gangsta is different from a lot of people’s gangsta. You have to go through something, life or death, to show your loyalty and to show that you’re real — for me to be like ‘you’re a gangsta.’ Not just taking care of no goddamn kid, that ain’t gangsta. You supposed to do that! You don’t supposed to go to jail for somebody I killed, so if you do that, and stay loyal, that’s gangsta. Not taking care of your child or paying your mama’s bills. You supposed to do that.”
