Skrillex is Collaborating with a Huge Hip Hop Artist on New Album

Back in December, A$AP Mob's own A$AP Ferg revealed in a video interview with Billboard that he would be teaming up with none other than Skrillex for a big upcoming project.

Ferg and Skrillex have previously toured together most recently as part of the 2015 Full Flex Express tour, but the most notable A$AP Mob and OWSLA collaboration was Skrillex and A$AP Rocky's 2013 hit song "Wild for the Night," the third single off Rocky's debut album.

A$AP Ferg recently unveiled the details of the project. Skrillex will appear on a collaborative track called "Hungry Ham" on his forthcoming sophomore LP, Always Strive and Prosper. The track was also originally said to feature Grimes, but now label representatives are reporting that she will not be involved, according to THUMP.

Here's a description of the track from Stereogum per their exclusive interview with the rapper:

"'Hungry Ham' — though electro-leaning, club-friendly, and easily able to traverse a broad range of fans — is all about the block Ferg grew up on. Ferg kicks off his first verse with, 'Grandma used to call me Mickey Mouse/ But I’m no rat… Seen my niggas’ family members bugging off of the crack/ Your uncle smell like shit like he got garbage in his ass.'"

Skrillex isn't the only high-profile collaborator on the album. The Harlem rapper is also working with hip hop artists Missy Elliott, Future, Schoolboy Q, Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign and Chris Brown as well as producers Clams Casino, Lex Luger, DJ Khalil and Stargate.
