It’s an incredible time to be alive as the official mixed and mastered version of Young Thug and Elton John‘s “High” has surfaced.
“High’s” existence was rumored for three years after word spread of Elton being a fan of Thugger went out, including a photo of them together became an Instagram delight. Now, we have an official version surfacing on Thug’s new On The Run EP.
Hearing the sample from John’s 1972 hit “Rocketman” manipulated by producer Stelios Phili as Thug pulls melodies to compliment it out of thin air is pretty incredible. These cross-generational collaborations can go either way, but we’re all the better for this existing.
