He also featured on two Italian number-one singles: "Yoshi" with Machete and "Supreme – L'ego" by Marracash and Sfera Ebbasta.[4]

On 7 December 2021, Tha Supreme stated on his Instagram account that, in his opinion, the singer Blanco had copied from his music and never credited or mentioned Tha Supreme for it, pretending he did not know anything about it when asked in interviews. The Instagram post was deleted after several days.[5]
