J. Cole has been a huge co-signer of Young Thug since he was an up and coming artist. In 2018, the Dreamville founder surprised fans by bringing Thug on as an opening act during his KOD Tour. Young Thug has hinted at multiple projects set to release this year, including Hy!£UN35 and Barter 7. It was always rumored Cole and Thug were collaborating on a project due to Cole’s continuous support and affinity for the Atlanta rapper. Last year in interview J. Cole candidly stated,
“If you want to talk about Young Thug as an artist, he’s an innovator, If you know skills, you call him a mumble rapper all you want, but if you know skills and you know the art of rapping, that dude is a genius.”
Today, sources close to Thugger confirmed that J. Cole will be the Executive Producer for his new project; the two started recording sessions in New York City earlier this month. Though, it is still unknown which of Young Thug’s said to be projects J. Cole will be producing. Thugger hasn’t released a full-length project since Beautiful Thugger Girl in 2017 and we are ready for some new HEAT!
