Hip Hop and EDM Officially Collide

It all started with an out of the blue tweet by @Wale in early March forecasting the epic collabo in the making...

This week that coming soon became a legitimate, tangible appetizer in the form of a radio rip of Let's Get Down with @Skrillex. About five months ago, the beat for the track surfaced on the internet, but evidently that was an incomplete version that was in need of some Hip Hop influence.

It's about what you'd expect with Wale spittin' bar after bar over high octane electronics waveforms that sound like Skrillex if you know what I mean. Word has it this track is going to eventually surface on Skrillex's upcoming Goats and Fire 2 EP. I'll caution that the version below isn't quite the CDQ, but it's the longer real version that you're not going to find with the radio rip circulating. It was only a matter of time before the two genres had an official collaboration with two up and coming artists. I'm anxious to see how well the track is received by fans of both genres. I'm all for progression and genre bending so you know I'm down with #EDHop...
