Lil Wayne targets Young Thug over Carter 6.
When Young Thug first rose to prominence over 18 months ago, he made it quite clear that his biggest influence rap wise was Lil Wayne. This was all the more evident when some of his earlier works leaked onto the web with him sounding almost identical to Tunechi. As time passed, Thugger has become a rap sensation in his own right, with a sound and style unique to himself. Though he has been affiliated with Birdman and the Rich Gang collective, Thug and Wayne have only collaborated on one record. The reason for this became all the more clear when label drama between Lil Wayne and Birdman’s Cash Money Records hit the news wire in late 2014.
Since then, Wayne has been rather vocal in his displeasure with YMCMB and his inability to release his long awaited The Carter V album. With all of the shots that have been thrown his way, Birdman has opted to remain mum on the subject. Young Thug on the other hand shocked fans when he announced that his forthcoming solo album would be titled Carter 6. Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Thug held a photo shoot for the cover art entirely in the nude.
Lil Wayne has kept his frustrations focused squarely on Birdman, until now. With Thug’s album set for release next week, Tunechi set his crosshairs on Young Thug during a recent strip club appearance when he gave the crowd some clear instructions.
