Young Thug is really going through with calling his next project Carter 6 and he just shared a snippet of a new song on his Instagram. Now, when Thug first announced he wanted to call his project Carter 6, he stated it was because he wanted to carry on the tradition that Lil Wayne had built up with the series through the years.
With the recent tensions between Weezy and Birdman, it's a bit odd that they would go forward with this, and not to mention, Wayne's own album, Carter V, is still in limbo with Cash Money. With all of the tension already building, this doesn't seem like it will calm things down.
As for Thug and Wayne, there has been no direct tension between the two, and Thug has constantly praised Wayne as a major influence on his life and career. Back in October, Thug and Wayne appeared on the Rich Gang song "Take Kare" together, with that being the only released collaboration between just the two of them. Also worth mentioning, that in the snippet above, Thug seems to big up Wayne and even sample Weezy's song "Grindin" in the process.
Update 3/17/15 (10:01 p.m.): Lil Wayne's daughter, Reginae Carter, is not a fan of Young Thug hijacking the Carter series. She took to Twitter this afternoon to voice her displeasure.
