Future and Pusha T Join Baauer on New Track ‘Kung Fu’ [LISTEN]
In less than a month, Baauer is dropping his debut full-length album, Aa. Ahead of the release, the "Harlem Shake" producer has shared a new track, "Kung Fu," which features Future and Pusha T.
Future takes on the hook whereas Pusha T rules the verses on the hard-hitting hip-hop production, once again delivering lyrical blows set to ninja-fast synths. Stream "Kung Fu" via Baauer's Soundcloud, below:
"Kung Fu" premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show this week. Before dropping the new track, the trap and bass producer discussed the collaboration with the radio show host.
Baauer told Lowe: "I was working with Pusha on his project, just giving him some beats and working on some songs. This kind of came through it. This was one of the songs we were working on and I managed to get it for my album," Rolling Stone reports.
The producer added: "I was like, 'This is one of my missiles. This is one of the ones I guarantee is gonna make some kind of noise.'"
"Kung Fu" is the third taste of the producer's forthcoming highly collaborative album, following "Day Ones" and "GoGo!," Stereogum reports.
"Day Ones" features UK MC Novelist and New York City rapper Leikeli47. The producer debuted the grime-influenced track with a live performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last month and followed-up with an American Revolution-themed video last week.
Aa (pronounced "Ay-ay") is to include four more collaborative tracks that we have yet to hear: "Way From Me" featuring Tirzah, "Temple" featuring M.I.A. and G Dragon, "Make It Bang" featuring TT The Artist and "Church Reprise" featuring Rustie. The whole album is due out March 18 via LuckyMe Records.
Both Future and Pusha T, of course, recently dropped new albums--Purple Reign and Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, respectively. All three collaborators have their own tour dates coming up.
