Young Thug Says Drake is "Nothing Like These Other Rappers"

Drake takes plenty of flack riding waves and using ghostwriters, but his peers cannot praise him enough.

On Friday (February 17), Young Thug took to Instagram following his performance at Sheffield Arena—where he opened for Drake on his Boy Meets World Tour—to shower the headliner with love. 

"Thanks for this journey my brada," Thugger wrote. "u 1 of the realist rappers I know... very GgenuinNe [sic] man and brada, I love the way u treat me and respect me and my heart!!! YOU R NUN LIKE THESE OTHER RAPPERS. I mean ALL OF EM.... And for that I'm with u forever!"

In just the last few months, 21 Savage labeled his friendship with Drake as "deeper than rap," Bryson Tiller flexed on Instagram while spending time at Drake's home, and The Weeknd was able to call in a favor by having Drake make a cameo in his newly-released and super generic "Reminder" video.
