Juelz Santana is teaming up with 21 Savage for a new song.

Juelz Santana revealed that he's secured a collaboration with 21 Savage for his next album. The iconic New York rapper shared a screenshot of his text exchange with 21 on Instagram over the weekend. The conversation began with Santana sending over a track tentatively titled "Dead Ops."

"Can we do this joint for my album bro," Santana wrote to 21 Savage, who replied, "Got you!!!!" From there, Santana said, "Let's Go. I waited I didn't jus wanna send u anything. Dis joint got u all on it." 21 wrote back: "Shit hard," to which Santana said, "FACTS." Santana captioned the post: "HEAVY Ⓜ️OTION LETS GOOOOOOO…"

News of the collaboration comes just months after Santana spoke out to defend 21 following his controversial comments on Nas' relevancy. 21 had said that he felt the legendary rapper is "not relevant." Both Santana and his Dipset partner, Jim Jones, defended the opinion. “I’m just looking at what 21 Savage was saying. I don’t think that he meant it as what people were taking it as, or shit like that,” Jones explained. “Because in today’s society, with the younger generation, these kids are very lit out here, and they put ‘lit’ and ‘relevant’ in the same thing, when it’s two different things.” Santana elaborated: “I think they should have found out what 21’s definition of relevant is, too. When you ask questions, you got to be real particular ’cause he’s just talking …”

Santana also linked up with 21 Savage at Drake's concert at the Apollo Theater, earlier this year. He joined Freekey Zekey, Cam’ron, and Jim Jones for performances of “I Really Mean It,” “Dipset Anthem” and “We Fly High (Ballin’).” 21 had collaborated with Drake on their album Her Loss. Santana has been teasing a new album with DJ Drama for months now. “We In Motion… The Album…Top Of The Year…long Time Coming #ICFMF #BackOutSide,” Santana captioned a post from December while announcing the project.
