Young Thug's "Me or Us," a Charlie Handsome, Rex Kudo and Post Malone-produced song from his newly-released Beautiful Thugger Girls project, was originally supposed to feature a guest feature by Frank Ocean, according to Handsome.

"Originally, we thought Frank Ocean was going to get on this record," he explained to our Andy James in a Beat Break interview. "We were really hoping for Frank, but I don’t know if his schedule didn’t work out or whatever."

“Let It All Out”: An Interview With PGF Nuk

PGF Nuk is the newest prodigy of Chicago drill. He breaks down his career journey for Audiomack World.

Just because Frank wasn't able to jump on the record, however, doesn't mean there isn't some star power sitting in the on-deck circle, waiting to step up to the plate. "I think right now Thug’s going to have Travis Scott cut a piece to that and re-upload it to Spotify so that’ll be really cool," added Handsome. "Look out for 'Me or Us 2.0.'”

Although Thugger was the first artist to record to the "Me or Us" beat, he wasn't the artist it was originally crafted for. According to Handsome, the production was birthed during a Kanye West studio session for The Life of Pablo

In April, Frank premiered a Young Thug-assisted remix of "Slide On Me," a track from his visual album Endless, on his blondedRADIO show on Beats 1.
