Juelz Santana Shares Snippet of Young Thug Collaboration
Juelz Santana was keeping pretty quiet in 2016 up until last month. Since then, he's been releasing new music on the regular. A few weeks ago, he teamed up with an all-star lineup of East Coast MCs - Method Man, Redman, Jadakiss and Busta Rhymes - on a track called "Ol Thang Back." Now, he's got a new collaboration with Young Thug in the works.
The Dipset member shared a preview of his track with Thugger on Instagram. The brief clip give listeners a taste of Young Thug's verse while Santana nods in approval. Perhaps this collaborative effort was something that Young Thug spoke into existence, a habit he discussed in his recent XXL cover story.
“I’m big on speaking shit into existence," the Atlanta rapper said. "I had to learn not to say stuff like, ‘If I go to prison, I’ma still be…’ Know what I’m saying? I had to learn to back away from that type of stuff and gang bangin’ because I feel like I really speak so much stuff into existence. And sometimes I forget. Sometimes it be in my old music. I be like, What the fuck? I really was like, ‘Next year I’m going to have rings on every finger’ and the next year, I really got rings on every finger. But yeah, I’m big on it. It affects my life so, so much. So much.”
Young Thug's got some more collaborations on the way, including an EP with DJ Carnage. No release date for the Young Martha EP has been announced, but DJ Carnage revealed the record has been completed.
