Young Thug and Future are collaborating again, and their latest work is sounding magical.
About a year ago, there existed some tension between Future and Young Thug. The feud was thankfully short-lived and, in reality, not too surprising considering that they stood as the top two artists in Atlanta at the time. Luckily, healthy competition seemed to be the diagnosis, and this year, Thug and Future -- still No. 1 and 2 in Atlanta (the order is very much up for dispute) -- have made amends and, as proven by a couple of new Instagram videos, reinvigorated their collaborative partnership.
Thug and Future had collaborated a few times in their earlier days, notably on Metro Boomin's "Chanel Vintage," released in Summer '14. That was their last collab until this summer's "Who," a standout off DJ Esco's Project E.T. "Young Thug goin' brazy!" Future triumphantly exclaimed to close his verse on the song. Before that, on "Digits," off Thug's March mixtape Slime Season 3, Thugger rapped, "I'ma move me some dope like I'm Future." And Thug's latest project, JEFFERY, even contains a song created in tribute of the Freebandz rapper.
The two prolific Atlantans were spotted in the studio last night, clearly on the best of terms. And damn do these snippets sound like something special. Hear Thug rapping in the first and Future in the second. It's unclear what project this particular song is slated for, though it would fare well on Future's Beast Mode 16, alongside that Drake collab that should be dropping in the next couple of weeks.
