An Eminem and Post Malone collaboration may be on the way.
Over the weekend, Cole Bennett, who directed Eminem’s videos for “Godzilla” and “GNAT,” posted an Instagram Story that sent fans into a frenzy. The photo, which was shared by the Eminem fan site Southpawers, shows a yellow barbed stick positioned in front of a yellow M&M statue. While it may not look like much at first, fans were quick to point out the significance of the references.

According to one Twitter user, the yellow stick is from Post Malone’s Posty Fest. Post has also included yellow barbed wire imagery on his beerbongs and bentleys album cover as well as the single artwork for “rockstar.” He even has a barbed wire tattoo on his forehead.

Bennett, who founded the multi-media company Lyrical Lemonade, captioned his cryptic post with the shushing face and surprised face emojis, fueling speculation of a potential collaboration between the two. He later deleted the post, but not before fans took a screenshot.
White Gold, who collaborated with Eminem on songs like “Zeus” and “You Gon’ Learn,” previously revealed that he was trying to get Eminem and Post Malone on a song. “There’s one that I really want him and Post Malone to do,” he told the “Black Spider” podcast earlier this year. “I definitely have the perfect song for them. That would be dope.”
Eminem hasn’t released new music since Side B, the deluxe edition of Music to Be Murdered By, in December.
