Young Thug rarely says much during interviews and his recent conversation with GQ was no exception. The ATL rapper barely had one sentence answers for each question but still managed to make headlines with his words about his career, Jay Z and changing his rap name. This is the Thugger zone.

GQ: Why not rap forever?
Thug: I don’t want to be 50 years old and rapping, man. I’m pretty sure nobody wants to do that. I’m pretty sure Jay Z don’t wanna rap right now.

GQ: Why is it such a young man’s game?
If you’re 30, 40 years old, you’re not getting listened to by minors. Like, Jay Z has some of the sickest lyrics ever, but I would never buy his CD, just because of my age and because of his age. By the time I turn that old, I ain’t gonna be doing what he’s doing.

At what age do you drop the “Young” from your name?
I don’t think I’m gonna drop it, ’cause I want to be forever young. But if I had to…

What would you change it to?
My little niece always calls me Jeff the Rapper, so I might change it to that.
