Never one to shy from firing off surprising tweets, Kanye West revealed on Sunday (October 18) that he and DaBaby are working on a track together. Ye shared a text message thread between himself and the ever-confident North Carolina rapper, implying that they’ve been exchanging verses.

The excitement is clear in both artists’ messages, DaBaby promising to send back his verse the very same day, and Kanye sending an overload of emojis in response. DaBaby also expresses his gratitude, letting Ye know that he’s been a fan since 2007’s Graduation album.
In September, Kanye announced via Twitter that he will not release any new music until he is freed from his contract with Sony and Universal, after leaving fans hanging with the promise of Donda. Meanwhile, DaBaby dropped the deluxe version of his Blame It On Baby album in August.
It is unclear when this collaborative track will drop, but the song would be the pair’s first joint record.
