Lil Baby forgot to send the young thug his verse for Thug’s album

In case you’re wondering why Lil Baby doesn’t have a guest feature on Young Thug’s new album, Punk, there is a legitimate explanation for its absence.

Lil Baby posted a video on his official TikTok page on Wednesday night (October 20), revealing that he was supposed to appear on Thugger’s “Bubbly” joint with Drake and Travis Scott, but Baby forgot to send his verse.

In the 15-second clip, the multi-platinum rhymer is seen lining up on her hair, with her verse in the background. On the video, he wrote in the caption: “When a young thug sends you a song for his album [and] you forget to send it back, ”adds the emoji of the man rubbing his face.

The Quality Control Music artist having no bar on Young Thug’s latest effort probably came as a surprise to many, especially given how close their relationship was.

For XXLIn the Fall 2019 issue, where Lil Baby graced double coverage with the late Juice Wrld, the Atlanta native gave a separate video interview, in which he modestly credited Thug for helping him move from street to rap game.

“Young thug, he gave me all the jewelry,” Baby said. “He literally paid me to leave the neighborhood. [He said], ‘Bruh, you can rap, you got that. You could be next. You have to get off the ‘hood … I’ll pay you to come to the studio.’ “

The following year, Thugger confirmed during an appearance on TI’s Quickly podcast that he paid Baby to focus on rap once the CEO of 4 Pockets Full (4PF) was released from prison.

“That nigga didn’t know who he was,” he explained. “I used to read captions about that young nigga and shit in his pictures and I call this nigga like ‘Bruh, you know you can rap. You stumble.’ He said in jail, ‘Bruh, I’m going out, I’m going to get myself some money, give me a bag and do what I have to do.’ “

Young Thug added, “Just to make it up to you, you could really get paid to do it. Like no cap, not no ‘I’m going to pay you’, but, no, really do it.”

The two ATL MCs have appeared on several tracks together, including “Chanel” with Gunna and “Bad Bad Bad”.
