A$AP Ferg has recruited Skrillex for new song ‘Hungry Ham’, hear the full track below.
‘Hungry Ham’ represents Skrillex’s latest collaboration with the A$AP Mob, having previously produced A$AP Rocky’s ‘Wild For The Night’ in 2013. The song will appear on Ferg’s new album ‘Always Strive And Prosper’, which will be released later this month (April).
It had been reported that Grimes would appear on ‘Hungry Ham’ alongside Skrillex. However, she is replaced by Baauer and MIA collaborator Crystal Caines on the final tracklist.
Skrillex is one of the many guests on the album with Schoolboy Q, Missy Elliott and Future all set to feature.
‘Always Strive And Prosper’, is the follow up to A$AP Ferg’s 2013 album ‘Trap Lord’ and will be released on April 22. Missy Elliott appears on a track titled ‘Strive’ while Public Enemy’s Chuck D is on ‘Beautiful People’ alongside Ferg’s mother.
Other guests on the album include Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Lil Uzi Vert, Ty Dolla $ign and Big Sean, Future and Schoolboy Q appear on the previously released ‘New Level’ and ‘Let It Bang’ respectively.
In a recent interview with Stereogum, Ferg confirmed that the stacked guestlist was a last minute addition to the record. “All my features just happened,” he said. “[At first] I didn’t have any features on it. Just to get a well-rounded album, I wanted to get guests and friends.”
