Kanye West is back in the studio, and this time he’s teaming up with one of his favorite new rappers. Baltimore’s own Young Moose recently posted a photo of himself with Ye, hinting at an exciting collaboration in the works.

On June 4, Young Moose took to social media to share a snapshot with Kanye West in what looks like a studio or creative space. He captioned the picture with heartfelt thanks, saying, ‘@ye Thanks For Changing My Life. It’s Up! Da BIGGEST That Did It!!! Now Watch This! #HistoryMade.’

Kanye had already mentioned Young Moose in April during an appearance on Justin Laboy’s The Download podcast. When discussing his favorite contemporary rappers, he listed Moose alongside big names like 21 Savage and Kodak Black. ‘There’s this new rapper out of Baltimore named Moose who we’re working with,’ Kanye noted, adding his signature touch of humor by saying, ‘But I told y’all, I don’t even listen to music. I’m too busy getting money!’

Young Moose has been a notable figure in Baltimore’s music scene for nearly a decade. His track ‘Tru Bill’ has garnered almost four million views on YouTube. However, his career’s journey has been far from smooth. In 2022, he settled with the city of Baltimore for $300,000 after accusing police officers of harassment, illegal arrest, and planting drugs on him. More recently, he faced legal trouble again when he was arrested for allegedly fleeing a traffic stop and assaulting a sheriff’s deputy earlier this year.

Kanye’s public endorsement of Young Moose surprised many on social media. Reactions ranged from supportive to bewildered, with one user commenting, ‘Kanye shouting out Young Moose is insane! This should put a battery in every Baltimore artists’ back. You never know who’s watching/listening.’ Another added, ‘Moose getting a shout out from Kanye was the most random shit ever.’ Moose himself couldn’t contain his excitement, sharing his thoughts on Instagram with, ‘This Sh¥t Bigger Than Lyfe ! Words From ¥esus Himself @ye #Blessed @justinlaboy.’

Kanye West’s collaboration with Young Moose has certainly stirred interest and speculation. With a history of unpredictable moves, this partnership could bring something fresh and unexpected to the music scene. Fans are eagerly waiting to see what these two creative minds will produce together.
