Despite the hold-up of Lil Wayne’s Carter V album, Young Thug is preparing his own version of Tha Carter.
On Tuesday (March 17), the Rich Gang rapper confirmed that his debut album will be titled Carter 6, via an Instagram video accompanied by the caption: “#CARTER6 OTW.”
His label, 300 Entertainment, also confirmed the title, saying that it is coming “soon” on Twitter.
Young Thug previously revealed the Lil Wayne-inspired title during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid last year. At the time, Wayne had said he would retire after Tha Carter V, so Thugger wanted to carry the torch.
“I just feel like I’m that big,” he said. “‘Cause [Wayne] feel like after Tha Carter V, he ain’t gon’ make no more music ’cause he feel like can’t nobody make no music like that.”
