Young Thug has built a pretty great rap career by taking the drugged-out excesses of mixtape-era Lil Wayne and pushing them out into the ether. Given Thug’s recent Cash Money affiliation, it was inevitable that he’d end up on a track with Lil Wayne one of these days. It’s finally happened on a new song called “Take Kare,” an early single from Birdman’s next Rich Gang compilation. And these two sound absolutely natural together. London On Da Track, who produced all of Thug and Rich Home Quan’s great Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1 mixtape, is back on this one, and it’s a spare and skittery song with both Thug and Wayne doing strange things with their larynxes. Listen to it below.
The Rich Gang 2 compilation is coming later this year. Download Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1 here.
