When Young Thug announced that his debut album would be named after Lil Wayne's iconic Tha Carter series, he was met with confusion and anger from fans and detractors alike. The eccentric rapper isn't just trying to one-up his mentor's (currently unreleased) upcoming album; he's making a statement that he can hang with the upper echelon of veteran rappers.
The biggest question is: What will this album sound like? Luckily, besides his new song "Check," Thug has been leaving bread crumbs in the form of 15-second Instagram posts for the past nine months. He often performs the songs to his followers, teasing a range of tracks that touch on the brilliance of the unorthodox rapper. From his Auto-Tune-assisted singing to his wildly distinct raps, if the posts below are any proof; Tha Carter 6 sounds like it will be the project that changes the perception of Young Thug.
