young thug carter 6

It’s no secret that Young Thug is a huge Lil Wayne fan, but he caught even his biggest supporters by surprise when he announced plans to continue Wayne’s legacy and make Tha Carter 6. And as it turns out, he was being dead serious. In addition to a tweet from his label, 300 Ent, Thugga took to Instagram today to share a sneak peek at his own Carter project, which just so happens to be a freestyle over Wayne and Drake’s “Grindin.”

If Birdman has any respect for chronology, he should free Tha Carter V (as in the Lil Wayne album made by the actual Lil Wayne) first. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if he gives his blessing to Thug instead just to spite his adopted son, with whom he’s currently embroiled in a hefty legal dispute.

UPDATE: Lil’ Wayne’s daughter Reginae isn’t a fan of the album title, read her tweets below on the subject.
