Steve Aoki has been collaborating with rappers for years now, and he's held a presence in both hip-hop and EDM as the genres have become increasingly interfused. The DJ/producer's latest collaboration comes with Lil Uzi Vert, a rapper with an energy level normally associated with electronic music. Aoki called into Sway in the Morning earlier today to premiere the collab, entitled "I Can't Lose."
Aoki's backdrop on "I Can't Lose" is more light and soothing than his usual mosh-inducing fare, and Uzi begins by dropping off loose, melodic flows. The song initially sounds like it could've made it onto The Perfect Luv Tape. Uzi's opening verse is capped off with a build-up and a relatively frenzied drop designed for festival usage. Still, the track isn't too EDM for hip-hop heads and vice versa.
I don't follow no rules
Livin' life so loose
Slippin' right off in that what?
Slippin' right off in that coupe
