The rapper and producer have announced a joint project is coming soon.

Rapper Aminé and Grammy-winning producer Kaytranada have announced a brand new collaborative project. The rapper took to Instagram to announce the collab through a teaser video. The video didn't show much, but users are already going wild in the comments. It's unclear if the project will be a single, an album, a mixtape, or something in between. Since neither artist has released a project since 2021, fans have been waiting a long time for new material. Both Aminé and Kaytranada have some extremely impressive collabs on their resumes, so it should be interesting to see how this one stacks up.

Aminé was born in Portland, Oregon. The 28-year-old rapper made his debut in 2016 with the song "Caroline." It peaked at number 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100, which helped him gain notoriety in the industry. Hip-hop, funk, and pop are all elements of Aminé's music, and he is well known for his clever wordplay and memorable hooks. He has two acclaimed studio albums under his belt: 2017's Good for You, 2020's Limbo. In 2021, Aminé self-released an experimental mixtape named TwoPointFive. The "Redmercedes" rapper has also worked with a number of other well-known names in the industry, such as Missy Elliott, Charlie Wilson, and JID.

Kaytranada + Aminé = Kaytraminé

In the video posted to both Aminé and Kaytranada's Instagram accounts, the duo announced their new name. The video shows a neon orange sampler, on which Kaytranada presses pads. Each pad triggers a syllable, starting with "kay-tra-na-da." Then, the producer triggers the syllables for Aminé's name. Finally, he puts them together to create the pair's name as a duo, Kaytraminé. It's certainly a creative way to announce a collab.

Fans immediately jumped on the post, commenting about how excited they were about the project. Scrolling through the comments on the video, it's difficult to find a single negative comment. "I USED TO PRAY FOR TIMES LIKE THIS," commented one user. "Peak music has returned," another claimed. Seems like lots of people are looking forward to the collab. What do you think about the news? Are you excited for Kaytraminé? Sound off in the comment section!
