Young Thug Confirms He’ll Be on Childish Gambino’s Final Album
If you listen closely to Childish Gambino's latest single, "This Is America," Young Thug's harmonies and ad-libs can be heard throughout the track, as well as his vocals on the outro. But while the song won't be appearing on Gambino's next and last album, Thugger says he will be featured on the upcoming project.
During an interview with Spotify, Thug was asked about a photo he took with Gambino and revealed how they met. "[Childish Gambino] got in touch with Reese LaFlare. I think they cool, friends or whatever," the rapper said. From there, Thugger said the "Redbone" artist had a song he wanted him on.
"He told him to come to the [studio]. He said he has a song for me for his last album," the rapper added. "I tweeted one time, I was like, 'I bet I be on Gambino's last album.' I'm on his last album, it's crazy. He's really not making music after this."
As Young Thug said, Gambino's next album is expected to be his final album under the name. In 2017, the rapper confirmed a follow up to Awaken, My Love! would be his last Gambino album but didn't say if he would stop making music all together.
“There’s nothing worse than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?’” Gambino said. “You know, I like it when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that.”
Elsewhere during Thugger's interview with Spotify, the rapper revealed he and fellow ATLien Future have each other's names tattooed on them. "Man, me and this nigga got each other's names tatted on us," Thug said. "That's how we feel. It's forever."
