Is it advisable/possilbe to just tile over the carpet cement left behind by I/O carpet?

This is on a front entry where some dingdong layed I/O carpet in a north facing entry that never gets sun.. Needless to say the stuff reeks from mold/mildew and so I tore it out and have porceline tile to replace it with. However there is a pretty solid layer of rubber based carpet adhesive and I was not sure if the thinset would adhere or not.

If not, what are my options here...

get a razor scraper from the local big box home center flooring section, some extra blades, and scrape the heck out of it down to bare concrete.

use extreme care as the blades are extremely sharp.
