Kanye West is no stranger to controversy. Perhaps that's why the rapper gravitated toward 6ix9ine, as a recent Instagram post seems to suggest.

The two entertainers hit the studio Saturday to record music, a moment captured by celebrity photographer Don Canon. In a post laden with emojis, Canon wrote "Ahh shit it’s going up," referring to the two artists sharing the studio space.

But that wasn't all. The photographer also captured more images of the rappers as they recorded and smiled.

Yeezy hanging around 6ix9ine may seem unusual, but the Chicago rapper has recently called 6ix9ine to be one of his favorite artists out right now.

While it is unclear if Ye and 6ix9ine's collaborative efforts will appear, one has to wonder if the duo's time in the studio is in any way related to Kanye's newest announcement regarding a sequel to Watch the Throne.
