Australian electronic producer Flume is no stranger to teaming up with members of the hip hop community. The deluxe version of his debut record featured remixes of his songs with Freddie Gibbs, Stalley, Ghostface Killah and Killer Mike. Now, he has shared the second single as he ramps up to release his second record.
“Smoke & Retribution” features Vince Staples and singer KuÄka. The glitchy, synth-heavy track features Staples on the first and second verse. It’s an unusual sound for the rapper, but we’re always happy to hear artists experimenting and evolving.
Stick around after the song ends to hear the Aussie describe how he ended up working with Vince Staples.
I ain’t scared of six feet
cuz I ain’t scared to be free
all I’ve seen while on this earth
know that hearse can’t be too worse
