Future and Young Thug have long held a simmering beef. It most recently popped up back in February, right when Future was getting ready to drop EVOL. Future and Thug traded some subliminal shots on Twitter, with Thugger telling Future to "slow down dropping all that BS music." Of course, Future and Thug appeared on a song together on Esco's recent ET project, though it's unclear when that was recorded.
Metro Boomin even addressed their feud during his Fader cover story interview in April. “You can’t have either one of them feel like you fucking with the other one more than them," he said. "Either one of them would be offended... Neither one of them are the type to settle for number two. I feel like they both motivate each other, and it’s good for the culture and the music—just as long as it stay at that.”
It looks like despite the sometimes-strained relations between the two parties, they've put their differences aside to work on new music together. Both artists have already had prolific years—Future with Purple Reign, EVOL, and Project E.T. Esco Terrestrial, and Young Thug with I'm Up and Slime Season 3—so it's about time that they combined forces. Hopefully we'll see the results of their work soon.
