  • Acclaimed Flop: Many of his projects, such as Barter 6 and Jeffery, all received critical acclaim, but sell below expectations, with none of them sans his collaboration with Future Super Slimey selling above 40K first week. He didn't sell a album that debut at No. 1 or sell more than a 100K first week until So Much Fun in 2019, almost five years after being established in the rap game.

  • Channel Hop: He was first signed to Gucci Mane's 1017 Bricksquad Records. After Gucci was arrested for the last time in 2014, he was dropped from the label. He was managed by Birdman under his label Cash Money Records through Rich Gang until the collective was quietly disbanded a year later in 2015, before Thug's contract was sold to Lyor Cohen and his label 300 Entertainment and Atlantic Records, the latter of whom distributes and owns his back catalog.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: Barter 6 was initially titled Tha Carter 6 off of Lil Wayne's acclaimed Tha Carter series when Tha Cater V was still in Development Hell over a dispute with Cash Money's co-founder and CEO Birdman until Wayne himself sued him and forced a name change.
