They've performed together, shot surreal music videos together, and even made a whole collaborative mixtape together. Apparently, they also have the names of one another tattooed on their bodies.
Thug casually revealed that fact near the end of a short video with Spotify on Tuesday when he said, "Man, me and this n***a got each other's names tatted on us. That's how we feel. It's forever."
During the segment, Thug also confirmed that he'll be on Childish Gambino's next album.
"[Childish Gambino] got in touch with Reese LaFlare," he said. "I think they cool, friends or whatever. He told him to come to the [studio]. He said he has a song for me for his last album. 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."
Thug, of course, is referencing Donald Glover's claims that he will soon be retiring the Childish Gambino name.
Young Thug did contribute some vocals to Gambino's new "This Is America" single, but his label has confirmed the song won't appear on his next album. So it sounds like we'll be hearing more Thugger on the next project. The fan theories were right.
