Young Thug has teamed up with Sir Elton John to work on a remix of his 1972 single 'Rocket Man', according to website The Fader

Young Thug is working on a collaboration with Sir Elton John.

Lyor Cohen - the co-owner of the 'Stoner' rapper's record label 300 Entertainment - arranged for the music legend to have a consultation over video conferencing software FaceTime with Thug.

And Elton was thought to be so impressed with Thug during their chat that he agreed to send over the music from his 1972 hit 'Rocket Man' for him to re-work.

A source told website The FADER: "It's all the instrumental, the guitar, the piano; and Thug is not rapping, he's singing. It is really ambient and amazing."

News of the two artists joining forces should come as no surprise as Elton, 68, previously revealed his appreciation of 24-year-old Thug's music.

Talking about how he loves the American rapper's eccentric clothing and his attitude, Elton said: "I love all that. It's unexpected. I remember when Blind Faith came out, with a nude girl and John and Yoko, you had to buy to it in a black plastic bag. And you should be able to do things like that, but we don't live in that kind of world any more. I f***ing hate PC. You can't say anything about anything any more. I'm not really for censorship at any level. I think you should be able to say what you think."
