Young Thug is apparently on an Elton John remix

First he’s riding horses, now he’s collaborating with Elton John.

Rumours have surfaced about a Young Thug remix of Sir Elton John’s 1972 track Rocket Man. Apparently, Elton approves.

Rap industry veteran and 300 Entertainment co-founder Lyor Cohen is said to have hooked up a call with Elton and Thugger via FaceTime. “It’s all the instrumental, the guitar, piano; and Thug is not rapping, he’s singing,” a “source” told The Fader. “It’s really ambient and amazing.”

Back in December, Elton John told Noisey that he’s big fan of Young Thug, and he’s since played the rapper’s tracks on his Beats1 show Rocket Hour. More on the story as it unravels.
