Young Thug was the subject of numerous speculations in 2014, including claims that he was given over $8 million to sign with Future’s record label.

Young Thug worked with big names like Kanye West, Chief Keef, and Rich Homie Quan throughout the next few years.
Fans were clamoring for a proper album by 2015, rather than another mixtape. Young Thug had intended to name his debut album Carter 6 after Lil Wayne. Lil’ Wayne, on the other hand, perceived this as a copyright issue and advised his supporters not to listen to Young Thung. Young Thug responded by announcing Barter 6 as the title of his upcoming album. He then stated that the future release would be nothing more than a mixtape.

“In a typical Young Thug stanza, he slurs, yells, whines, and sings, passionately contorting his voice into a variety of weird timbres like a well played but damaged wind instrument,” according to The Fader.
