ChaseTheMoney raised the bar considerably by teasing the arguable "collaboration of the century."
ChaseTheMoney jumped on Instagram yesterday, sharing a mock-up of what appears to be the tracklist his upcoming project. Suffice to say, the prospective tracklist is loaded to the brim. As my colleague said in passing little under a day ago, "this better be the real deal," a sentiment shared by the hoards of social media users who bore witness to the posting in its itinerant form.
The mere thought of a J. Cole x Drake collab makes total sense. In fact, the pair teased "new music" in the coming year during an April concert showing at London's O2 Arena, at which point no further details were offered as to who or whomst would play host to such a gathering.
When you toss cult favorite Young Nudy into the cauldron, a Drake x J. Cole collabo takes on a very different kind of air, even on paper. As one Tweeter put it, "J Cole and Drake on a song with Young Nudy and Billie Eilish on a song with 10K Cash... on a chasethemoney album.. bro what." The world ain't ready for this jelly.
Other commenters preferred to convey their startled reaction by way of Michael Jordan memes - the following Tweet, but one of many demonstrable facial expressions the NBA legend has contributed to the historical timeline. There's no shortage of ways to interpret Michael Jordan's frozen expression. I gather, this commenter looked the same as he glanced upon Chase's early mock-up.
Then you've got the odd reaction that comes to us in Swahili, because as you know, Drake's appeal crosses over borders like a wayfaring hash runner in the Saharan desert. I implore those of you who've surpassed your initial state of shock to hit us with your comments. Does a prospective "Drake x J. Cole x Young Nudy" collab do anything for you? How about a supporting cast of Young Thug, NBA YoungBoy, Lil Pump, Juice WRLD, Quavo, and A$AP Ferg, as ChaseTheMoney alluded to in the same posting?
