However, Lil Wayne took offense to that proclamation and hit up Twitter to issue a statement to the contrary: “Me, that’s who.” Wayne does have a point since many fans feel Thug’s style is heavily influenced by Lil’ Wayne.

It is nice to see Young Thug showing homage irregardless of their tension from issues in the past. Will we ever see the two rappers collaborate? Time will tell.
