When I spoke with Young Thug in 2014, he said he always knew he’d be a star. By that point, he was already rising quickly, but he had the confidence long before he had the hits. In this interview, filmed back in 2011, Thugger predicts where he’ll be in the future.

What’s next for Young Thug? What can we expect in 2011?
Wayne. Young Money. I’m workin’ with them… Young Money. I’m comin’.

The current Young Money/Cash Money situation complicates his prediction, but it’s still safe to say that Thug is where he always knew he’d be.
