In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid's Shade 45 Young Thug announced the title to his debut album.

The "Danny Glover" rapper announced his debut album will be named The Carter VI. The rapper explains that Lil Wayne is the reason behind the name.

"It's called The Carter VI," he said. "I just feel like I'm that ni**a because after 'The Carter V' he's [Wayne] not making anymore music like that and I feel I can.'

Lil Wayne has been a big influence on the rapper. Thug says the rapper inspires him lyrically and in his outrageous fashion statements.
