Young Thug is quickly becoming one of the most interesting figures in the hip-hop game. This is mostly due to his very entertaining raps, but also because of his very unique personality that he seems to show off everywhere he goes. The latest case is in this interview on Shade 45 with DJ Whoo Kid, where Thug touches on a number of topics. Included are his experiences at SXSW and how he felt when Nicki Minaj jumped on his popular track “Danny Glover.”
The most interesting part of the interview had to be when Whoo Kid asked for the title of his debut and he responded by saying that it will be called Carter VI. Thug is more than likely trolling everyone, but it is well known that Lil Wayne is one of his mentors, so maybe it ends up being true. Regardless, Thug is hilarious during the interview.
When Jon Connor warned us of “#ConnorSeason Begins” yesterday, we didn’t expect a full mixtape from dude out of nowhere. Here is his latest release, hosted by DJ Drama, entitled Best In The World. Like he did with Eminem beats and Jay-Z, he goes in over all Kanye West beats this round. He dubs this tape as ‘The Late Registration Of A College Dropout Who Had A Dark Twisted Fantasy Of 808s And Heartbreak’ and he surely doesn’t disappoint.

In anticipation for her upcoming DJ Drama Gangsta Grillz mixtape titled She Got Game, Rapsody unleashes her star studded collaboration with Phonte and Jay Electronica. The soulful groove finds all three trying to outrap each other and Jay Elec on another feature, which has been the most we’ve seen in one year (possibly ever).
And from out of the blue, DJ Drama announces on Twitter that a new Lil Wayne mixtape is on the way. No details are really revealed besides that but he emphasizes fans to stay patient. Maybe they’re still in talks and Weezy hasn’t even cut any tracks yet. Either way, based on his tweet, don’t expect anything any time soon.
For the time being, you have Dedication 4 to hold you over until then.
