Young Thug – Barter 6

The buildup to the latest mixtape from Young Thug was all controversy. Thugger’s already polarizing style spiked when he decided to push his orbit even closer to that of another big personality: Lil Wayne. The two had similarities — the lean-riddled slurs intermingling with singing, wacky ad-libs, and croaked rhymes — but Thug crossed a line in the Book of Weezy when he announced his tape would be called Carter 6, the next step after Wayne’s still-unreleased Carter V. Though Thug claimed it was an homage to his favorite rapper, the maybe-beef escalated until the tape’s name was changed slightly (the b comes from his Blood affiliations). But other than a few equally beef-ish lines, Barter 6 exhibits none of that controversy. It’s a woozy reminder to fans why they love him and haters why they hate him.
