It turns out that the April release -- which was initially called Carter 6, but changed last minute -- wasn't enough for Thugger.
"I’ma drop one more mixtape [before my album]," he told No Days Off Radio. "I’ll probably name it Tha Carter V, ’cause the original Carter V still ain’t came out yet. I don’t know what the f--k they doing. So I’ma put that motherf--ker out for ’em."
Wayne, of course, hasn't put the album out because of an ongoing dispute -- as well as a lawsuit -- with his label, Cash Money.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that, in recent months, Thug has been so closely associated with Birdman -- who both runs Cash Money and is the man Weezy has been calling his "daddy" for years. Thug, though, reiterated that he's not signed to Birdman in any way -- label, management or otherwise.
"I manage myself," he said. "I'm signed with Atlantic. I have a big, special deal with Atlantic, and it's only Atlantic. Birdman is my homie."
Tunechi, meanwhile, hasn't taken too kindly to Thug's title selection so far.
“If there were any other albums that dropped recently, tell ‘em I said, Suck my d--k,” he told a crowd during an April concert. “Carter V coming soon; ain’t no motherf--kin’ such thing as Carter 6.”
Something tells me he won't love this idea, either.
But there you have it. Get ready for Tha Carter V. And the other Tha Carter V, too.
