Lil Wayne on Young Thug’s Barter 6 : I Appreciate Everything About It

But there's a catch.

Published July 9, 2015

Lil Wayne called into his hometown radio station Q93.3 FM earlier this week, where he addressed Young Thug’s Barter 6 album, among other topics.

As previously reported, Weezy's interview included info on the Lil Weezyana Fest with the radio station, but he opened by sharing how he stays grounded. “I thank God after every day. After every two lines I think of, every bar I make up. I thank God because I blow myself away," replied Wayne when asked about his lyrical abilities. “Sometimes I be like ‘this came so easy that it gotta be more than just me putting this together.'”


On Thugger’s Barter 6 album, the 32-year-old rapper said that he doesn’t necessarily hate the idea of him copying his title — so long as his intentions are pure. Being that Wayne dropped a 500 Degreez album back in the day to spite Juvenile, he understands how the Barter 6 could be misinterpreted. 

“I ain’t got no problems with Thug,” he said, differentiating Barter 6 from his 500 Degreez effort. “Here’s what’s different, when we did it, we literally said, we had no problem saying we don’t need no Juve this is 500 Degreez. [Thug] came out and said that I named my album such and such because of props, and because I’m such a fan. That’s a totally different approach.

“I’d have to be some kind of monster to overlook that,” explained Wayne. “I’m not that type of person, my mama ain’t raise me to [be like that]….if he says it’s from the heart and he’s some kind of fan, I love him. Hell, thanks bruh. I appreciate everything about it — if he’s a fan.”

While listeners were probably hoping he’d take a shot at Birdman during the interview or answer questions about the lawsuit, Wayne is actually barred from saying anything for legal reasons.  “I can’t get into it, but God bless, that’s all.” is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
