The new generation of rappers has been divisive to say the least, but one artist in particular seems to have won over even the most ardent youth-basher. Ski Mask The Slump God, who first came onto the Florida scene with right hand man XXXTentacion, has been carving out his own niche in the game. Once his breakout single “Catch Me Outside” dropped, the rapper’s cartoonish, childlike personality and dexterous flow collided for one of the most entertaining tracks in a minute. Plus, it showed that Ski Mask had an appreciation for the glorious legacy of Timbaland, who Ski Mask has previously referred to as his “favorite producer.”

Now, Ski Mask has taken to Twitter to tease a “Surprise Tape Coming Produced By A Loved Producer,” and while he remained somewhat scarce on any accompanying details, it’s surely enough to cause speculation. I mean, the obvious answer would be Timbaland, would it not? Since the recent announcement of a beat battle between Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, Timbo has been increasingly active of late, cooking up some new beats and even previewing a Meek Mill and Jay-Z collaboration on his IG

It’s a collaboration that makes sense, if you think about it. Ski Mask has already hopped on Timbo & Missy Elliott’s “She’s A Bitch,” and brought out the duo’s “Get Ur Freak On” for his collaboration with A$AP Ferg “ILoveYourAunt.” To add fuel to the speculative fire, Ski has also been teasing a new song that sounds an awful lot like Timbaland, Magoo & Fatman Scoop’s “Drop.” It would certainly add up with the whole “loved producer” thing, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Timbo?

What do ya’ll think? Any ideas who Ski might be referring to?
