Elton John and Young Thug hang out together in Atlanta

It’s no secret that Elton John has admirably eclectic musical taste.

So the surprise here isn’t so much that John and Atlanta rapper Young Thug hung out Wednesday at John’s Atlanta penthouse, but that John still visits his Atlanta pad!

Young Thug posted photos on his Instagram account that show him happily posing with the music legend, who is holding up a Young Thug sweatshirt.

Todd Moscowitz, the co-founder of Young Thug’s 300 Entertainment label, told The Fader that the rapper visited John because they share a mutual admiration. Young Thug’s manager, Amina Diop, said that during the meeting Young Thug previewed a song for John called… “Rocket Man.”
