Despite all the negativity that has been directed at Skrillex over past few years, there have always been a significant number of people who ignored the backlash and continued to observe a high level of creativity and passion behind the man’s music and ideas. I’m one of those people, but with this track, all that is thrown out the window.
Usually I like to write quite a bit about a piece of music, but all I can think to say is that this does not sound good, and I’m not sure why it was put on A$AP Rocky‘s (leaked) album. The production is just an edited version of Skrillex’s Birdy Nam Nam remix, which has to be a significant factor in why the track doesn’t quite mesh with Rocky’s flow – it wasn’t made for him. I don’t know that an A$AP & Skrillex collaboration could ever sound phenomenal, but there’s no doubt that it could’ve been done infinitely better than this.
Anyway, download it here, have a listen, and make up your own mind.
