Last night on Twitter, Be El Be—a member of Thug's inner circle and the director of his epic “Best Friend” video (among many others) —appeared to confirm the news when he retweeted a tweet that read “Young Thug - Digits ft. Kanye West otw.” He also added, “And Mystical.”
A source with knowledge of the song has since confirmed the collaborations existence to The FADER. Thug’s next release, Slime Season 3, is supposed to arrive on Friday. Check out the tweets below.
In an interview with Sway In The Morning in January, Thug briefly discussed his work with Kanye. “Me and him got something going on,” he noted. “Of course. A lot of things going on.” One of those things was presumably “Highlights,” The Life Of Pablo track featuring vocals from Thug. Mystikal is perhaps a more surprising collaborator: his tough, abrasive rapping style is a long way from Thug's.
