Young Thug is backtracking after getting hit with a backlash after he declared that he had more stadium anthems than Jay-Z.
Young Thug took to Instagram to address the widely discussed comments he made about Jay-Z during his appearance on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast.
“Don’t have Jay-Z on me cause of this internet shit,” Thug wrote on Tuesday night. “I was talking to [sic] fast but y’all know what I meant.”

While chatting with with Gillie Da King and Wallo267 on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Thug curiously asserted that Jay-Z doesn’t have 30 stadium anthems but that he himself has upwards of 40. […] anthems, we talking about songs they know… Like, when I perform, I got 30-40 songs that the whole stadium gonna know,” Thug said before adding, “Jay-Z ain’t got 30 songs like that… the whole stadium finna sing.”
“Jay-Z don’t got 30 songs like that”
We’re dropping the video of episode 93 with Young Thug at 7:30 tonight.

In his defense, Thug did quickly back track on the comments soon after making them when it was pointed out that the 4:44 rapper has plenty of hits.
“I’m just saying like, I know he do, he probably got 50 of them bitches,” Thug said in response. “I’m not just literally saying him. I’m saying n**gas who you thinking…”
Unsurprisingly, Thug seeming to suggest he has more hits that Jay-Z didn’t sit well with many people online.
Young Thug needs to pipe down. I was born in 1998 and can rap more Jay Z songs ????? these new generation rappers think to highly of themselves ? nigga Jay-Z entire albums have no skips tf pic.twitter.com/EVO1cyU7OP

I’ve seen Thug perform twice and I seen Jay Z perform 3 times. I’d much rather be at the Jay-Z concert
