Rich Homie Quan talks Young Thug & finding out he had a son while in jail

Rich Homie Quan spills it all for “The Therapist.”

  /  08.23.2017

On the latest episode of Viceland’s “The Therapist,” Rich Homie Quan sat down with Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh to discuss his feud with Young Thug, how it felt to find out he was a father while he was incarcerated and much more.

In case you missed Quan’s appearance, here are 5 things we learned from his sit down with Dr. Siri.

On his early years:

Rich Homie Quan graduated from high school with a 3.2 GPA and a baseball scholarship but chose not to go to college because he felt that he could learn more in the streets as opposed to what the schools could teach him. “I felt as if I would gain a whole lot more from my peers as opposed to college. I felt as if college was a waste of money,” said Quan.

On seeking professional help:

Rich Homie Quan has never seen a therapist before and due to trust issues, has been reluctant to share his thoughts with anyone. After spending over a year in jail, his trust issues got worse. “Those 15 months re-centered me but you’re so vulnerable. I was so vulnerable for 15 months that it was hard to trust anyone,” said Quan. “That’s why I’ve been so afraid to express myself.” Quan later revealed to his father that he believed he needed professional guidance. “I just need to talk to someone who doesn’t care who I am. That’s what I’ve been missing.”

On finding out he had a son while incarcerated:

“That was hard,” said Quan. “Especially like… I found out I had a son and he was five. It’s like, we put it in our minds that for our kids, we want to be their for the first steps. You want their first words to be ‘dad’. We have these expectations so high but when your son sees you, he doesn’t even call you dad.”

On Young Thug and Birdman:

“It was bad times, more so of what the people made it as opposed to me and [Young Thug] having bad times,” Quan tells Dr. Siri. “We never got in an argument but egos played a major part in it. I would definitely say mine did.” Quan also revealed that there was no real conflict between him and Thug, but that they mutually agreed to pause their friendship. At the moment, the two are still on pause. “That pause, I don’t want anyone to think there’s bad friction or bad blood. I have no bad feelings.”

On cutting his hair to get rid of bad spirits:

“When I was little, I had a Jamaican teacher and he would tell me ‘If someone died and they touched them, they’d have to cut all of their hair off.’ I would ask why and he would say, ‘To get all of the bad vibes off of him.’ I just looked at it, there’s no telling what was going on in my head while I was growing that hair. It just stuck on me. I just wanted to cleanse myself. It’s like a new beginning.”
