This is a rap duo no one saw coming.
Antonio Brown linked up with Kanye West on Monday in Los Angeles, just days after the wideout was released by the Buccaneers on Jan. 6.
The Super Bowl champion and Grammy-winner hung out at celeb hotspot Craig’s restaurant, where they shared laughs and handshakes in social media videos and photos shared by Brown.
“Ye + AB = SB,” he wrote on Twitter and Instagram.
Brown posted the photo after he attended the release party for his new song, “Pit Not The Palace,” at Sapphire strip club in New York.
He shared a video that showed West getting groomed by a barber in a back room at Craig’s. The pair, along with a few others, laughed while Brown filmed the rapper on his phone.
Just days prior, social media influencer Justin LaBoy said that Ye has expressed interest in working on music with Brown.
Before Brown jetted off to LA with Fashion Nova Men, he spent the week in New York City promoting his new song.
The Pro Bowl receiver shared videos dressed in a fur jacket while filming a music video in the Diamond District over the weekend.
On Thursday, Brown enjoyed a night out on the town with rappers Fabolous and Meek Mill — before he was seen at Harbor NYC on Friday, celebrating Misa Hylton’s birthday.
Brown galavanted around New York after not flying back with the Buccaneers, following an on-field outburst at MetLife Stadium when Tampa beat the Jets on Jan. 2. He exited the game in the third quarter and ran shirtless through the end zone to the locker room and did not return.
After that, Brown continued to slam the Bucs’ organization on social media and in interviews, including quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bruce Arians.
In a social media statement, Brown accused the Buccaneers of trying to force him to play through an ankle injury that he and his lawyer, Sean Burstyn claim MRI results show requires surgery. He said he plans to undergo ankle surgery in the offseason and return to the NFL.
Brown’s rocky relationships with teams have put his NFL future in limbo.
