Young Thug in one of the most polarizing artists in music. While he gets his fair share of hate, he also gets a ton of co-signs from some of the biggest artists in music.
Earlier this week Thugger got one of the most unique and rare co-signs in music, as Sir Elton John mentioned that he is a fan of Young Thug's music.
During an interview with Noisey, Elton John discussed one of Young Thug's songs, saying "I love that record! I actually asked [Universal Music CEO] David Joseph about it. I heard a track on Beats 1 and I loved it so much."
The star continued enthusiastically endorsing the young MC. "I love all of that," he said, referring to Thug's various attention-grabbing outfits. "It's unexpected. I remember when Blind Faith came out, with a nude girl and John & Yoko, you had to buy it in a black plastic bag. And you should be able to do things like that but we don’t live in that kind of world anymore." "I fucking hate PC," Sir Elton added. "You can’t say anything about anything anymore. I’m not really for censorship at any level. I think you should be able to say what you think."
While there are plenty of songs and artists I could imagine are in Elton John's Ipod, Young Thug isn't one of them. Being open to new sounds is one of the things that make Elton John a great musician.
