Young Thug, whose Barter 6 album leaked today (April 16), disses Lil Wayne on the hook of “Can’t Tell.”
“Pussy boy I’ll leave you dead and call it Dedication,” Thugger raps. While he’s insisted many times that he idolizes Lil Wayne, some could interpret that line as a diss towards his idol, given that Wayne released a Dedication series of mixtapes.
T.I. is also on “Can’t Tell.” Yesterday (April 15), T.I. took the Atlanta, Georgia rapper’s words as sincere when he addressed the purported rivalry he was having with Lil Wayne. “‘Everybody’s making it a whole lot more,'” T.I. said Young Thug told him. “‘I’m doing it to pay homage. That’s my favorite rapper.'”
Barter 6 has been heavily publicized due in part to the emcee’s statements. The rapper called his “Mamacita” collaborators — as well as his new boss, Birdman — his “lovers.” Then there is his referring to Rich Homie Quan as “Bitch Homie Quan,” as well as his Jay Z diss in a GQ interview.
The album itself has received special attention due to his addressing Lil Wayne directly. Thugger initially named his album after Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter joints, then later posed on the album’s cover naked. A week ago, Weezy told his Mississippi fans, “Y’all let him know I said, ‘Fuck ‘em,'”
The Young Money affiliate slated the album’s debut performance for Weezy’s hometown neighborhood of Hollygrove. In an Instagram video, he alluded to bringing guns to the New Orleans release party, as well renaming the album as Barter 6, in lieu of Tha Carter 6.
Barter 6 is available for purchase on iTunes.
