While the duo continues to remain tight-lipped on a possible return, in a pleasant bit of news for fans, TSM Hamlinz recently posted the following message on a Discord:
While nothing has been confirmed as yet, it was truly heartening to see Hamlinz's recent message, which ensures that an iota of hope remains when it comes to eager fans who continue to await his and Daequan's highly-anticipated return.
