A few weeks ago rapper Lil Wayne let it be known that his upcoming album, “Tha Carter V” will be his last. Atlanta rapper Young Thug , however, plans on keeping that “Carter” name alive. In a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Thug said his next project will be called “Tha Carter VI“, one bigger than Wayne.
“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.”
