It seems as if Young Thug and Kanye West have been in the studio together.
Over the past two days, Kanye has shaken up social media with a number of big announcements. First, the 21-time Grammy Award winner confirmed his musical guest appearance on Saturday Night Live’s Season 44 opener on Sept. 29. In addition, he visited Chance The Rapper’s “Open Mike” event in Chicago to announce their upcoming album, Good Ass Job. He also vowed to move back to Chicago and “never leave again.” While everyone thought that was it, Ye surprised us with one more announcement.
He posted artwork similar to 2013’s Yeezus, with the date 9.29.18 and title, Yandhi.
The post led many to assume a Yeezus 2. Well, Young Thug must know something that we don’t know. After catching wind of the post, Thugger took to Twitter to send Ye a message.
“If I’m not on #YANDHI I’m never talking to u again #OnGod,” said the Atlanta artist.

Thugger’s ultimatum may just convince Ye to put him in the upcoming project. This may be the best time because Ye is promoting love, peace, and collaboration. Although Thug has his own project dropping “very soon,” he wants to take full advantage of the moment. We have not witnessed any collabs from either artist. In 2016, Thugger released a song entitled “Kanye West” from his Jeffrey album, featuring Wycleaf Jean. One can assume that Ye and Thugger have collaborated on a number of unreleased tracks. This is common amongst artists. The “Jesus Walks” artist has yet to respond to Thugger, but like Thug, many are anticipating an appearance one of Kanye’s tracks. Who’s ready for this collab? One thing we can assume is that it’ll be met with high expectation and anticipation.
