A new track from late rapper-producer FXXXXY, featuring Lil Uzi Vert, arrived Thursday titled “Yeah Kool.”
FXXXXY was signed to Future‘s FreeBandz label and was credited with engineering work on the song “Solitaires,” featuring Travis Scott, from the rapper’s eighth High Off Life album, released in May 2020. While working on Future and Lil Uzi Vert’s joint album Pluto x Baby Pluto, which was released in November, “he and Uzi bonded after Future ran late to their studio session. The union between both rappers ultimately led to the organic collaboration of ‘Yeah Kool,'” according to a press release.
On Wednesday, FXXXXY’s official Twitter account shared an old clip of the Dallas star teasing their collaboration in response to Uzi’s “no cap” tweet from August, when FXXXXY claimed the song is the “SONG OF THA YEAR.”

The rappers swap bars about flexing on their enemies on the Supah Mario-produced track with spacey synths.
FXXXXY (born Maudell Watkins) died in September from complications during a routine medical procedure. He was 25.
Gunna and Lil Durk appeared on his nine-track posthumous album Do You Trust Me? that dropped in December, just four months after his death.
