Cutting his teeth in the world of post-hardcore screamo and then UK-born bass music, and now celebrated as one of pop’s most in-demand producers, Skrillex makes an unlikely candidate for rap music’s favorite beat maker of the moment, yet still he’s managed to firmly plant his flag in the hip-hop game, aligning with some of the genre’s brightest up-and-comers and most formidable veterans. He has joints with Vic Mensa, Chance The Rapper, A$AP Ferg, and Rick Ross, with rumors of collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, D.R.A.M., G-Eazy and more underway. Now, the latest rhymer to join Sonny’s growing hip-hop hit list is emerging rapper G4SHI, as the pair were spotted in the studio working on new material together.
G4SHI already has some crossover in the dance space, previously delivering versework on DJ Snake‘s “Oh Me Oh My” alongside Travis Scott and Migos on 2016’s Encore. Now the burgeoning Albanian rapper seems to be cooking something up with Skrillex, and by the clip teased on Snapchat, it sounds like melodic R&B with a heavily saturated auto-tuned hook in the works.
