Back in December, Elton John revealed in an interview with Noisey that he was a huge fan of Young Thug and even compared Thug to the legendary John Lennon. In the interview Elton went on to say “I love all of that, it’s unexpected.”
Now, according to Fader, Elton and Thugga might actually have a collab coming soon after Lyor Cohen reportedly got the two on FaceTime recently. According to the article after the two talked, Elton sent over the instrumental to his classic song “Rocket Man” and Thug ended up freestyling over it, singing and not rapping.
This would make Thugga’s year amazing, as he already appeared on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo album. No idea when this song would come out and if it ever would, but if Elton would to be collaborating with a rapper soon it would be Young Thug!
