Young Thug’s retail debut is out now. It’s called Barter 6. It was going to be titled Carter 6 but a last minute lawsuit has prevented that from happening. Lil Wayne probably still isn’t happy about this. The album features guest spots from YMCMB owner Birdman, T.I., Boosie BadAzz, Young Dolph, and more. It’s got thirteen tracks total, which is pretty short for a mainstream retail release. And, honestly, it’s a pretty great album. You be the judge. Get it now on iTunes here and stream the full thing after the jump.
The recent situation between Young Thug and Lil Wayne is escalating albeit in a confusing manner. Here’s the breakdown: Lil Wayne doesn’t want to be part of Birdman’s YMCMB, Wayne’s highly-anticipated studio album Tha Carter V is put on hold, Young Thug is putting out his debut album entitled Carter 6 in tribute to Wayne, Wayne doesn’t like it and calls out Thug, Thug responds by saying he doesn’t want any problems and reiterates that the newly titled Barter 6 is a tribute to Wayne. Did you get all of that? Good. Now, T.I. decided to share his thoughts on the matter with DJ Whoo Kid. Find out in the clip after the jump.
With Lil Wayne, presumably Drake and Nicki Minaj and Rich Homie Quan now out it looks as if Birdman’s fullest attention is on New Atlanta’s superstar Young Thug. Thugger will be releasing Carter 6 later this year and with “Halftime,” “Beat It” and “Just Might Be” out the album is shaping out to be pretty dope thus far. And here Thugger is sharing “Check” another track that is said to appear on the forthcoming debut album. In the video Thugger and crew are just kicking back and having a good time on the Rich Gang tour bus. Check it after the jump!
It was just yesterday where Young Thug released two new tracks in “Halftime” and “Beat It.” The set of tracks was produced by Thugger’s go-to producer London on da Track. Today Thugger is sharing another new one in “Just Might Be.” This one is produced by one Wheezy. Kind of an ironic producer name/association given Lil Wayne’s recent discrepancies with YMCMB, the label Young Thug is currently signed to. Any who, check out “Just Might Be” after the jump.
With Young Thug on the road with Travi$ Scott for the Rodeo Tour Thugger is receiving exposure to new audiences. And as a result he and his team are leaking some new tunes. Two to be exact. The pair of “Halftime” and “Beat It” are produced by Thugger’s go to producer of the moment London on da Track. No wonder as to whether or not the tracks will appear on Young Thug’s Carter 6 album. Listen to both cuts after the jump.
Rich Homie Quan recently announced that he is officially splitting from Rich Gang (Young Thug and Birdman, being the other two members at the moment) to focus on his own brand. Quan didn’t exactly reveal any juicy details as to why, given his rapport with fellow Atlantan (and self-proclaimed “brother”) Young Thug. Could this be Rich Homie Quan’s answer to the recent, highly publicized squabble between Lil Wayne and Birdman? Who knows. There is no real, definitive answer as Quan has wisely kept his lips sealed on the matter. However, it’s worth noting that as soon as word got out about Quan’s departure a song entitled “My Homie” surfaced online. The song, as the internet collectively has noted is ironic, with both Quan and Thugger being on the track together. But we doubt there’s any beef, so to speak, between Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug, and we can probably expect more collaborations between the two. Anyway, enough gossip, check out “My Homie” after the jump.
T.I. and Young Thug struck gold with “About the Money” in 2014 and would team up once again for “We Want War.” So it was inevitable the two ATLiens would dap it up and release more music together. And today T.I. and Thugger share “Off-Set” a track from the soundtrack to the upcoming Furious 7 film, which hits theaters on April 3rd. Listen to “Off-Set” after the jump.
Young Thug and his favorite producer London on da Track link up with “I Swear to God” which may or may not appear on he and Rich Homie Quan’s Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1 sequel. Listen after the jump!
Another day, another string of Rich Homie Quan tracks. By now I’m not sure I can handle more RHQ loosies, I want an album! Seriously, dude puts out so many loose tracks they can fill up five full-length albums. Don’t get me wrong, I like Quan but by now it’s time to put out a full length solo project. It’s been a minute! Anyway, this pair features Young Thug and Migos. Listen to “Whatever” and “Falisha” after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, there are over three full hard drives full of unreleased Gucci Mane material just sitting around. And depending on your taste level that’s either a good thing or a bad thing. Regardless, that’s a whole lot of Gucci. And today you’re getting another unreleased Gucci track, as he sits in prison. This time it’s “Down on That” featuring young ATL hotshot, Young Thug. Listen after the jump.
Young Thug and Birdman drop the visuals for the Rich Gang Tha Tour Pt. 1 cut “Givenchy.” It’s flashy, exuberant, and certainly excessive. What more do you want? Peep the visuals after the jump.
Metro Thuggin, the collaborative project between Atlanta super producer Metro Boomin and the always entertaining and idiosyncratic Young Thug, has been awaiting to see the light of day. With the exception of a few loosies here and there, there hasn’t really been much in the way of Metro Thuggin. However, this all may change in 2015, as they prep the release of their collaborative studio offering. Here we are treated to two cuts in “Speed Racer” and “Warrior.” Listen to both after the jump!
“No homo but my blunt look like a d**k” utters Young Thug on “Friend of Scotty” the latest leaked cut from the New Atlanta weirdo. And frankly this may be the strangest, most bizarre track from Thugger Thugger we’ve heard yet. Which I know, in retrospect, may seem like a stretch in a catalog consisting of “Miss U,” “Picacho,” “Lifestyle,” and “Ain’t Trippin'” to name just a few. But seriously, “Friend of Scotty” has the aforementioned blunt to penis analogy as well as talk of pizza pies and their subsequent toppings. Anyway, listen for yourself after the jump.
The hyperkinetic and frantic collaboration between Young Thug, A$AP Ferg and Freddie Gibbs “Old English” receives a fittingly odd and offbeat animated visual treatment a la that of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Check out the colorful video for “Old English” after the jump.
Atlanta’s premiere hubbies (best friends) Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan team up for another slapper for 2015 in “In This Game.” The duo continue to offer up new tunes for fans as everyone patiently waits the upcoming Rich Gang: Tha Tour sequel. Listen to “In This Game” after the jump.
