From Flying Lotus to Kool G Rap, Crooklyn rhymer Joell Ortiz has worked with a wide variety of artists over the course of his career. Now, the Brooklyn emcee has revealed that he’s hit the studio with perhaps his youngest collaborator, the 8 year-old producer Lil BQE.
The body of Slaughterhouse took to his Twitter earlier this week to inform his fans that he did connect with the production child prodigy. Ortiz, who released his sophomore LP Free Agent on Tuesday via E1 Entertainment, also posted a picture of BQE in the studio.

As shocking as it may seem, Lil BQE is a pint-sized prodigy who has proved his worth on the MPC 2000 in a number of YouTube videos. He takes his name from the expressway that runs through his and Ortiz’s native BK borough.
A video of him rocking the pads can be seen below.
