For those of you who thought you’d never see a Carter VI, its now looking like a real possibility — though it won’t be Lil Wayne on the mic. According to Young Thug– who has continuously cited Wayne as his sole influence –his next project will be titled Carter VI.
“I just feel like I’m that big,” said Thug, speaking to DJ Whoo Kid on the title. “Cause he feel like after Tha Carter V he ain’t gonna make no more music. Cause he feel like can’t nobody make music like that,” explained the rapper, alluding to the fact that he took Wayne’s claim as a challenge. “I’m going straight at his ass”.
Thugger also spoke of his experience at SXSW, which he almost didn’t attend. “Fuck yeah, I enjoyed it. I didn’t even wanna go at first, man,” he said. “When I [stayed] there for like three, four days. Oh yeah, I ain’t never missing the next one. I feel like if I did step into the world I wouldn’t feel like it’s no competition.”
