Meek Mill and Rick Ross released their new song, Shaq and Kobe on Friday, September 29, leaving fans in raptures over the reunion.

The track is produced by D-Mo Did It and Fresh Ayr and the music video is directed by Kid Art.

In August, Mill, 36, created hype for Shaq & Kobe as he shared some behind the scenes of the recording session with Ross, 47.

The You The Boss released the new song on his official YouTube page and its demographics solidified how much fans are loving the new creation of the artists.

The video hit more than 1.1 million views, 62k likes and more than 5k comments in just one day.

This song brought back memory from the controversial point for Meek in 202,1 when he faced backlash for a lyric referencing Kobe Bryant.

In the song, he supposedly rapped, “Yeah, and if I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe.”

The rapper later apologized and this new track is assumed to be a more respectful tribute to the NBA legend and his fellow player, Shaquille O’Neal.

Meek and Rick also appeared on the recent episode of Ebro Darden’s Rap Life Radio to celebrate the release of their most awaited song, Shaq & Kobe.

Meanwhile, as fans were drooling over the latest single, the artists revealed that there’s another single, Too Good To Be True in the pipeline, which they plan to release "ASAP."

“We won already,” Ross said. “We playing with what? The house’s money and it’s only one way to explain that or describe that. It’s Too Good To Be True, which is the name of the project me and Meek Mill will be releasing.”
