In the middle of a tour vlog documenting Thug's time getting ready for a show in Baltimore, André 3000 popped up backstage in a surprise appearance. The rappers exchanged a hug in the quick interaction, as André said, "Thug, what's up G?" before flashing a smile at the camera.
While the two have never worked on music together, they have been connected in other ways. In February, André praised Thug for "charging up the rap game" and Erykah Badu said Thug reminded her of André following the release of Jeffery. Now, all that's missing is a collaboration. After interactions like this and André's recent blitz of guest verses, that seems a little more likely than it once did.
