Well the beef between Wayne and Birdman keeps getting bigger and bigger. Fresh off the release of his mixtape, Sorry 4 the Wait 2, Lil Wayne had quite a bit to say about the CEO of Cash Money. On the “Coco” remix, the former star player for Cash Money said:

“Who kept this shit together? Nigga, me, that’s who Who was there when niggas left us? Nigga, me, that’s who Cash Money is an army, I’m a one man army And if them niggas comin’ for me, I’m goin’ out like Tony Now I don’t want no problems, I just want my moneyAin’t gotta hold no conversation or my luggage Tell whoever’s countin’ that I’m on a hundred Birdman Jr., more like Ugly Duckling”

The rant in this track is RIDICULOUS! But hey, you can’t really blame Wayne for how he’s feeling. With all of this going on between the two, Cash Money/Rich Gang’s star player Young Thug has stated that not only is Wayne a mentor figure to him but he would like to keep the Carter series going as he wants to cover Tha Carter 6-10, according to Radio.com.

Yes, you read it right! Young Thug, whose last name isn’t even Carter or didn’t even start the series, wants to continue Wayne’s work to put out four more Carter albums.

Thug, who is signed to Birdman’s Rich Gang imprint FOR LIFE, wants to ‘immortalize’ his love for Wayne with Tha Carter series and releasing his next album as Tha Carter VI.

“Wayne coming out with more albums so I don’t know if he’ll name one Tha Carter VI,” notes the rapper. “It depends what he names his album.”

Hot New Hip Hop stated that during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Thug said this about using the title:

“Just feel like I’m that big. Cause he feel like after Tha Carter V he ain’t gonna make no more music. Cause he feel like can’t nobody make music like that. I’m going straight at his ass”.

I don’t know if this is flattery or just plain disrespect since Thug was taking Wayne’s statement as a challenge, but sometimes things just need to be left alone.

What do you think about Young Thug using Tha Carter VI for his next album title?
