The rapper – real name Antwan Patton – unveiled details of the hook-up in a series of posts on his Twitter page,

He revealed that producer Chris Carmouche, who worked on Outkast LP ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’, was also involved in the sessions.


“Me and @mouche1 in the studio workin with Modest Mouse on their new album Turnt up ! Shout out to Issac [Brock] and the crew!,” Patton wrote.
