Lil Uzi Vert Pays Homage to Lil Wayne and Young Thug?
The new Lil Uzi Vert tape appears to be inspired by a Lil Wayne album series of a similar name and a Young Thug mixtape of the same name. Lil Wayne started his Tha Carter album series in 2004 and has released five installments, with the sixth being teased last year.
In April of 2015, Young Thug released the mixtape Barter 6. The tape was initially titled Carter 6, in what Thugger said was a homage to Lil Wayne. However, at the time, Tunechi was in a legal dispute with Cash Money Records, who Thugger was affiliated with. Wayne dissed Young Thug over the move and even threatened Thug with legal action, prompting the name change to Barter 6. Uzi has worked with both Lil Wayne and Young Thug in the past.
