Young Thug Still Plans To Carry On “Tha Carter” Album Series After Lil Wayne

Young Thug Still Plans To Carry On Tha Carter Album Series After Lil Wayne

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. However if Tune does stop at C5, then Thug will drop C6 all the way up to a C10 project.

You can watch MTV interview Young Thug with Birdman sitting next to him in the clip below. I really want to know what Wayne thinks of this haha!

Young Mula‘s princess Shanell explains how YM are still a family after all of these years and Gudda Gudda confirms that we are currently in “Carter V Season” with Tha Carter V album being the next project the label will drop.

Weezy says that he doesn’t just handpick the artists to sign to his record label, he actually raises them. He also mentions that he has been doing music since his mom gave him a name and that his defining moment is waking up in a hospital bed after he shot himself when he was 12-years-old and the doctor telling him that he made it!

Wane explained that he has heard some stuff from C5 and even though he does not know if his beats will make the final cut of the album, he will still listen to it as he is a big fan of Tune: “Regardless, Carter V, Carter VI, Carter VII – I’m going to listen to them whether I’m on it or not.”
