ELTON JOHN TALKS MEETING YOUNG THUG: Elton John has opened up about meeting Young Thug. According to Complex, when asked what it was like meeting the Atlanta rapper, Elton John said, "I love that song ‘Memo’ and I love him. He sampled ‘Rocketman’ on his track ‘High,’ which I thought was a fabulous compliment. I met him in Atlanta because he heard we had played one of his tracks on the Rocket Hour. It was a really nice meeting but I didn’t know what to call him, Thug? Mr Thug? Sir Thug? I could see the headline in the paper: Queen meets Thug. But anyway, it was a really nice meeting and I loved him. I left feeling full of energy as I do when I meet great new artists. He’s a really talented guy. I'd love to hear him sing more, and I said this to him when we met. He's got a great voice."
