During the promotion of his new documentary Before Anythang, Cash Money head honcho Birdman sat down for an interview with Rap-Up, and discussed two of his current favorite hip-hop artists: Young Thug and Youngboy Never Broke Again

He considers Young Thug to be, "One of the realest I ever met in this game," and refers to him as "the super-talented one." Birdman mentions that Thugger is leading the way in terms of their upcoming Rich Gang 2 tape, which is tentatively set to drop sometime this summer. Still no official word on whether or not the tape with feature Rich Homie Quan, though Birdman has hinted at a Rich Gang reunion of some sort. 

On Youngboy Never Broke Again, Birdman can't say enough good things about him. According to him, Youngboy is "an animal," "a monster," and the "next biggest superstar in the world." He mentions how impressed he was with Youngboy's intelligence when he went down to work with him, presumably on their upcoming collaborative project From The Bayou, which was supposed to have dropped weeks ago but has mysteriously vanished without a trace. It seems Birdman's issues with release dates have extended to his two proteges as well.

Speaking of release dates, Birdman had previously confirmed that we would be gettingLil Wayne's Tha Carter 5 sometime this year, but at this point it could be anybody's guess whether or not we'll hear it.
