Young Thug Might Be on Kanye West’s ‘Swish’
Kanye West kicked the week off in a big way by tweeting the tracklist to his upcoming Swish album and the speculation on who will be featured on the project has begun. Young Thug's video director and frequent collaborator Be El Be was asked by a fan if Thugger will be on the project, and responded demonstratively:
The "Best Friend" director also confirmed that the two did work on music together and in since-deleted tweets, he said there is only one way to find out if the collab made the final cut. "Hold up. Now that I think about it...WE ARE ON THIS," he tweeted. "I remember the song title b/c I wrote it down, I think."
"Unless he took him off," he later tweeted. "I have it written down in my phone..," he continued. "I just know the song wasn't really done but thug re sand the hook and added a verse...Guess I'll know for sure when thug checks his bank statement. Kanye pays the big bucks.."
Last June, Thugger told Rolling Out that a backstage encounter with Kanye led to 'Ye saying that he wanted to make an album with the Atlanta native. "We [were] backstage at one of the tour dates at the Staples Center in L.A. and Kanye was backstage," he said. "He had a Beats Pill and was like, ‘I wanna hear all of your music in the world that’s not out.’ So I was letting him hear all the music. Then he said I was like Bob Marley and he wanted to do an album with me. I was like, ‘Let’s roll!’ He’s a fan. So that leads back to me saying fans are the main reason you stay motivated and become who you want to be. Kanye is like my brother, but he’s a real fan. He bought me some Yeezys and went on eBay to get them for me. That’s motivation.”
In other Young Thug news, the eccentric rapper tweeted out the release date for Slime Season 3 earlier today, claiming that the project is set to drop on Feb. 5.
