Should I (how to) tape/support drywall seem next to cabinet

I'm replacing the dry wall in our kitchen and then adding a tile backsplash. What is the best practice in terms of taping/mudding the seem that is right up against the cabinet base/top (see pic). Should I add horizontal 2x4s for support behind the drywall?



Basically I'm getting conflicting feedback on wether or I need a horizontal nailer. On reddit I here yes. This guy uses nothing. https://youtu.be/YZBqYskcs2w?t=458

If the studs are on 16" centers it should be ok without extra nailers.
