It’s no secret that Young Thug idolizes Lil Wayne.
In February, the eccentric rapper spoke to GQ about how he hopes to attain similar success as Wayne.
“I hope to be like Bill Gates, bro,” Thug said at the time. “With all the money in the world. Like Wayne, someday I want one of those kind of careers.”
Thug also named Michael Jackson but he’s following in the footsteps of Wayne. On Tuesday (March 17), Thug shared an Instagram video of a remix to Lil Wayne’s “Grindin.”
Thug captioned the clip: “#CARTER6 OTW.”
A separate tweet, sent out by Thug’s record label, 300 Entertainment confirmed the “New Atlanta” rapper’s caption.
The tweet reads: “.@youngthug #CARTER6 soon…”
Thug first mentioned that he would continue the Carter series in an interview with MTV last year. At the time, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V was still scheduled for an October release. Still, Thug explained how he wanted to create Tha Carter VI through Tha Carter X, saying, “He did I to V, I wanna do VI to X.“
