Young Thug is one of the most prolific rappers to ever release music, but even so, a lot of what he records doesn't even see the light of day. In a new interview with Virgil Abloh and Thom Bettridge for Interview Magazine, the Atlanta rapper revealed that he's recorded "15,000" songs throughout his career.

When asked how he manages to keep up such a crazy level of productivity, he replied, "I just stay in there. I keep clothes in the studio. I slept there last night. To be honest, I hate traveling so much, because I’d rather be in the studio." During the chat, Thug also spoke about how he's "always felt different," explaining, "I used to think that I saw things that other people didn't see, that I could put things together in a way that the average person couldn't."

Thug even gave some advice for people who feel different, adding, "Keep going. Don’t ever give up. Some people say that just to say it, but I always stress it because it’s the truth and it really works. Everybody will get a chance. Even if your chance is not right now, if you keep going, you will get your chance. So just keep going, keep going, keep going, and one day it will be your turn. And when that happens, you just have to take full advantage of your turn."
