Taking to Instagram on Sunday (January 3) to clarify what he meant by his statement, Thug said: “On this interview with my n***a Gillie, when I was talkin’ about the fuckin’ overseas n***as? N***a, I’m talkin’ ’bout the muthafuckin’ middle-class white guys and shit like that.
“N***a, I know real G’s out there, n***a. I fuck with real G’s! My muthafuckin’ n***a Giggs, all these muthafuckin’ n***as, Skeptas, all them playas? I fuck with real G’s.
He continued: “These n***as handlin’ they business smokin’ shit. I got plenty gangsta stories about these n****s. I’m most definitely not talkin’ it’s not no real gangstas out there. N***s real deal out this muthafucka.
“My muthafuckin’ twin 21 got family out there steppin’! King steppin’! I know real steppers out there. There’s no way possible I’m saying there’s no G’s out there, them n***as handlin’ they business. I’m talkin’ middle class.”

Elsewhere in the interview the Atlanta rapper claimed he has more stadium anthems than Jay-Z.
Thug said that when he performs he has “30 or 40 songs that the whole stadium is gonna know,” before adding: “Jay-Z hasn’t got 30 songs like that”.
He quickly rolled back his comments after it was pointed out that Jay-Z does have a lot of anthems.
He added: “I’m just saying like, I know he do, he probably got 50 of them bitches, I”m not literally saying him. I’m saying n***as who you thinking … I seen n***as like, ‘Damn, they don’t know this song?’ I’m so scared to get boo’ed, I don’t even perform songs they won’t know.”
