    You thought we were gonna get through this Young Thug album drop without a bona fide "WTF" moment? Think again. According to an email from 300 president Lyor Cohen, acquired by Pigeons & Planes, Barter 6 is a mixtape, and Thugger's impenetrably-titled, actual debut album will be out in August.

    Poetic License: The Art Of Writing

    Poetic license is not a new concept. The idea of poetic license can be traced back to the Greco-Roman classical era and is derived from the Latin words, 'poeta' ('maker') and 'licentia' ('to be permitted,' 'liberty'). The concept was encouraged by a Greek philosopher by the name of Aristotle (maybe you've heard of this dude?). In one of the first-ever treatise to describe poetry and literary theory, the philosopher referred to something called "poetic effect"-- which, today, we would call poetic license.

    Whether you've been following Young Thug for a few years or a few months, the anticipation for a proper debut album from the Atlanta hitmaker has been strong. The tension between Thugger and Lil Wayne over the project's title (first Carter Six, but changed to Barter 6 following legal threats) has only strengthened the hype, and now it's finally right here before us.

    With the controversy surrounding Young Thug's Barter Six heating up every day, most Southern rappers have been wise to stay removed from any alleged beef between Thug and Lil Wayne. A guy who's shown Thug past, and current, support is ATL legend T.I., who recently put out "Bankrolls On Deck" with Thug and the rest of Bankroll Mafia.

    Young Thug is causing new headlines every day as we prepare for Friday's release of Barter Six, no longer Carter Six due to legal threats--presumably from Lil Wayne's camp. Still, Thug continues to make moves that will likely offend devotees of Weezy and his seminal Carter album series. Yesterday, on Instagram, Thugga confirmed that the Barter Six release party will take place in Hollygrove, New Orleans, which is, of course, Lil Wayne's home neighborhood.

    After exchanging some choice words with his idol Lil Wayne these past couple weeks, it looks like Young Thug is now backing down from naming his new mixtape Tha Carter 6. Taking to his Instagram Monday night, Thugger announced that he’s changing the title from Tha Carter VI to Tha Barter VI (a blood reference) because someone is suing him over the original title. He didn’t reveal who’s suing him, but the first thing that comes to mind is either Weezy or Young Money, so who really knows.

    Well, we've finally gotten an answer to the are they/aren't they beefing question that's stood between Young Thug and Lil Wayne since the Cash Money drama began popping off and Thugger announced Tha Carter VI. The answer, at least for Tunechi, is yes. During a show last night, he halted his set to hate on Thug's new album cover.

    If Thugger hadn't stirred up enough drama by naming his debut album Carter 6, before Lil Wayne's Carter 5 has even seen a release date, he continued to cause controversy by posing nude on the album cover, and laying out the album's title in phallic formation over... well, you know where.

    Along with T.I. and Jeezy, Gucci Mane is among the class of ATL rappers who are credited with founding trap music as we know it today. He's done this not only by dropping an absurd amount of music (even from behind bars), but also by locating his city's most promising young artists and grooming them to become the city's next wave.
