Young Thug on his next mixtape: “I’ll probably name it 'Tha Carter V,' ’cause the original 'Carter V' still ain’t came out yet."
For legal reasons, Young Thug had to change the name of his last mixtape from Carter 6 to Barter 6, but he's not done trying to carry on the legacy of Lil Wayne's Carter series (or besmirch it, depending on who you ask). In a new interview on No Days Off Radio, Thugger reveals that he'll be dropping a mixtape before his debut album, Hy!£UN35, arrives in August, and that mixtape will be called Tha Carter V.
“I’ma drop one more mixtape [before my album],” he said. “I’ll probably name it Tha Carter V, ’cause the original Carter V still ain’t came out yet. I don’t know what the fuck they doing. So I’ma put that motherfucker out for ’em.”
As Barter 6 was a commercial release, it might be easier for Thug to achieve this stunt on a free release, but you can bet that Weezy and his lawyers will try their hardest to stop him.
While in the interview, Thug also spoke on his label status:
“I manage myself. I’m signed with Atlantic. I have a big, special deal with Atlantic, and it’s only Atlantic. Birdman is my homie.”
