If you remember back in March and May, Young Thug mentioned that he will be calling his debut studio album Tha Carter VI after Lil Wayne had previously said he would be stopping his Tha Carter album series after the fifth installment.

In a recent interview with MTV on set of a new Rich Gang video shoot in Atlanta, Thugger gets asked if he still plans on naming his album Tha Carter VI and he says that he is not sure now because Weezy may be dropping more albums.

Lil Wayne Hits Up The Studio With DJ Khaled To Work On I Changed A Lot

Yesterday in Los Angeles, Lil Wayne hit up the studio with his Cash Money Records label-mate DJ Khaled. You can view a picture from their studio session above and Wayne‘s gift that he recently received from Nicki Minaj can be seen lit up in the background.

DJ Khaled posted up the photo with a caption saying: “Big up my brother Wayne… #c5 #ichangedalot on its way”, so most-likely they were working on a song for Khaled‘s upcoming I Changed A Lot album, due to drop later this year.

Weezy F Baby previously appeared on DJ Khaled‘s Suffering From Success album last year with a solo song titled “No Motive” and a feature on the “No New Friends” single!
