After a couple of years that could have spelled trouble for the street cred of global EDM icon Skrillex, it appears as though his recent, high-profile collaborations have translated into further mainstream recognition for the bass music tastemaker – resulting in even more of the same.
Case in point: A$AP Ferg has revealed that he will be releasing a Skrillex collaboration sometime in the near future. The merits of such a stylistic fusion have already been verified in full as A$AP Mob colleague A$AP Rocky saw considerable success by collaborating with Skrillex on “Wild for the Night” in 2013.
During an interview with Billboard, A$AP Ferg divulged:
I got a crazy joint with Skrillex, this ‘New Levels’ we’re gonna use to break the walls down for this new beginning, this new Trap Lord. I’m entering the Hood Pope now. I was the Trap Lord two years ago, I became the Hood Pope on y’all.
Until we assemble a team of trap slang experts to decipher exactly what most of A$AP Ferg’s above quote even means, we can at least glean that his and Skrillex‘s collaboration will be titled “New Levels.”
