"Gambino Forever and Royalty is Do or Die"

You knew it was only a matter of time before Dubstep and Hip Hop would start hanging out more. With electronic music as a whole starting to gain some traction in American pop music and Hip Hop continuing to lead pop music, the two high energy genres simply can't be kept in two separate corners. Earlier this year, we saw @LupeFiasco collaborate with @bassnectar on Vava Voom, but Hip Hop/Dubstep collabos have been few and far between so far.

...which is why it's so awesome that two up and comers like @Fluxpavilion and @DonaldGlover got together on a new track together. The rumors of a new track came to live back in September when Flux debuted the track at Electric Zoo, but he's kept it under wraps until this week. I'll put it this way, it was well worth the wait. The opening verse from Donald fits well over the high energy synths, which give way to a drop that goes well beyond epic at the 1:05 mark.

The track is scheduled to surface on Flux's upcoming Blow The Roof EP, which will hit shelves on January 28th. From now on when I think of a best case scenario for blending Hip Hop and Dubstep, Do or Die will set the bar...and set it very high at that. #DubHop
