Young Thug Is No Tupac Shakur!

Little Haitian Baby meets Slime Season.

When Haitian American rapper/singer Wyclef Jean said to the junk food media he envisions rapper Young Thug as Tupac Shakur, I was totally shocked. I am surprised that the Atlanta rapper was given the mantle of being associated with 'Pac.

Young Thug is a rising talent, no question. He's affiliated with the domestic terrorist group The Bloods. 

He's made his big break by releasing the hit singles "Stoner", "Danny Glover" and "Loaded" off the mixtape titled Stoner. He collaborates with Gucci Mane, Future, T.I., Young Dolph, Usher and Rae Sremmurd. He's an in demand rapper.

But he's no Tupac... 


Young Thug's mixtape Jeffery is out and the rapper wanted to get a reggae influence. Jean appears on the album's final song. Speaking to Pigeons & Planes, the 46-year old rapper says he's found new respect for Thugger. 

The rapper will appear on Wyclef Jean's album J'ouvert. 

Thugger shows some love to the Haitians. Thugger named his child after the impoverished country.

"Sometimes you don't realize who you are affecting," explained Wyclef. "But he's from a project, I'm from a similar background. And he has natural love for Haiti, understanding the history of Haiti. Haiti is the first Black republic. He reminds me of a modern Tupac, in a sense---- in a revolutionary sense."

That drew a lot of attention.

People were pissed that a former rival of the late rapper would dare compare a newcomer to a complex but prolific rapper such as Tupac Shakur.

Any thoughts to the matter?

Does Young Thug have 'Pac in him? 

Mind you that rapper Ja Rule was roundly mocked by 50 Cent and Eminem for trying to create himself as the legendary rapper.

Listen to the full mixtape. Purchase No my name is, Jeffrey on iTunes or your local record retailer.

Watch the video of The Breakfast Club give their thoughts.
