YOUNG THUG PROTÉGÉ T-SHYNE TAPS KEVIN DURANT TO EXECUTIVE PRODUCE HIS NEW ALBUM

Written by on October 19, 2021

In addition to being an assassin on the court as an all-time NBA great, Kevin Durant also keeps his ear to the streets as a Hip Hop junkie and rap music savant. Young Stoner Life’s T-Shyne revealed on Monday (October 18) that KD will be executive producing his upcoming album.

“Album soon,” he wrote with a slideshow of photos locked in the studio with the Nets superstar and go-to YSL engineer Bainz. “Exec produced by @easymoneysniper.”

Last summer, T-Shyne announced that Young Thug will also be executive producing his album alongside Kevin Durant.

Born in Grenada and raised in East Hampton, New York, T-Shyne officially signed to Young Thug’s YSL label in 2018. The pair have collaborated numerous times since then, the most recent arriving on Thugga’s brand new album Punk. T-Shyne appeared on the album standout “Stressed” alongside rap dignitary J. Cole.

“And my brother, he just called, he need that lawyer money/They said he did it, but I know he didn’t/But you need O. J. money when you tryna get acquitted/This shit is sickenin’, nobody listen when you in prison,” T-Shyne candidly raps to close out the T-Minus-produced track.

T-Shyne isn’t the only rapper to solicit Kevin Durant’s opinion on their music. Prior to the first Donda listening party in Las Vegas, KD met up with Kanye West — who now formally goes by Ye — to get a first-listen of the project.

“He was asking me what songs that I like,” KD revealed in August. “I was like, ‘You asking me like the ones I like you gonna put that on the album.’ He actually did that — the joints that I liked, I heard them at the listening party.”

Elsewhere, James Harden served as an executive producer on Lil Baby and Lil Durk’s The Voice of the Heroes joint project earlier this year, while LeBron James A&R’d 2 Chainz’s 2019 album Rap or Go to the League.
