Over two years ago, a snippet of a Birdman and Young Thug collaboration called "Lil One" surfaced online. The full London on da Track–produced song finally crept online in full late last year, and now the pair have dropped the video, officially releasing this thing into the world. The track is mostly a Thug-led affair, with Birdman coming in to close while Thug runs the show.
The Be El Be–directed video mostly repurposes a bunch of footage of the two rappers, and most of it doesn't look like it was even shot for this song, but it's nice to have it finally out there. It's only when the video reaches its halfway point that the two actually start rapping their verses into the camera, which is a bit strange but whatever. It's unclear as to why they sat on the track for so long, but from the looks of the video it seems it's been ready to go for quite some time.
Birdman still has yet to release Lil Wayne from his Cash Money grip, but regardless, Thug remains in his corner. Birdman has developed a reputation for screwing over some of his closest allies over the past few years, but Thug seems to be happy backing him up no matter what.
Aside from the Lil Wayne situation, which has been long and very tiring, Birdman was also recently embroiled in a beef with DJ Khaled, although Khaled has reached out to squash things going forward.
