A clear collaboration between rapper Young Thug and Nat Ruis, a former collaborator of Jack Antonoff’s Grammy-winning group Fun, super-producer Jeff Vasker teased on Instagram on Tuesday.
The post contains only pictures of the two artists and a comment from the sculptor “It’s happening.”
In the photo, the thug is wearing a necklace that reads “Jeffrey”, which refers to a mix of the same name as his 2016, although the image was probably chosen by the sculptor for other reasons.
Representatives of the young thugs and Ruiz did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.
Although Young Thug is one of the most successful rappers today, with a string of platinum singles like “Go Crazy,” “Hot” and “The London”, Ruiz has kept a low profile in recent years. Although they got a smash single with “We Are Young” and won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 2013, they were a side-project for Ruiz, Antonoff and Andrew Dost and another album since “Some Nights” in 2012. Did not publish. The group announced in 2015 that it was not splitting but focusing on a single project. Ruiz released his first solo album, “Grand Romantic”, later that year.
Since then he has collaborated or written songs for Halsi, Kesha and Pink’s albums, although in February last year he played a set with his friend Sam Mince, with whom he formed the format, his band before the fun, and the pair said they were a series The show will play. However, the epidemic hit North America the following month, and no further updates were given.
