(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop history is filled with artists joining forces to form supergroups. The Firm, Hot Boys, Westside Connection, Black Star, Slaughterhouse, The Throne, Run The Jewels, and PRhyme are all examples of individuals unifying to create an even more powerful musical force.
It appears three of the Midwest region's brightest underground emcees are now officially linking up to craft tunes together. Over the last few days, the verified Twitter account for Ghetto Sage uploaded several photos of Chicago natives Saba and Noname as well as St. Louis rhymer Smino.
"N*ggas deserve a classic so...🤷🏾♂️," read one tweet from October 11. Two days later, Ghetto Sage tweeted, "Should we drop a song 🤔." On October 14, the account simply wrote, "10/17."
All three wordsmiths have garnered critical praise during their respective careers. Noname's discography includes the projects Telefone and Room 25. Saba dropped 2018's Care for Me. Smino hit the Billboard 200 with NØIR that same year.
Plus, the trio collaborated on Noname's "Ace" song. Saba and Smino also appeared on Dreamville Record's chart-topping Revenge of the Dreamers III compilation. They worked with J. Cole and EarthGang on the closing track "Sacrifices."
