Clams Casino is less than 24 hours away from releasing his debut album, 32 Levels. Already we’ve heard a couple of his star-studded collaborations, including those with Future Islands frontman Sam Herring (“Ghost in a Kiss”), Kelela (“A Breath Away”), and Vince Staples (“All Nite”). Now, the hip-hop producer has one last preview to offer up before the LP drops, and it features a double dose of hip-hop firepower in ASAP Rocky and Lil B.
Titled “Be Somebody”, it’s a moody, rumbling number that sees the three artists puffin’ up their chests for all the haters, competitors, and disbelievers to see. Rocky’s opening verse boasts, “Wingman ’til I turn into the main man/ I’ve been ballin’ so long, need an Ace band/ Calvin Klein on my waistband/ In Adidas tracksuits like we breakdance/ Say man, how it feel to be a made man?”
According to Clams, the track — which features additional samples of Rihanna associate Mikky Ekko — was originally intended for Rocky’s breakthrough record, 2013’s Live.Long.A$AP. Check it out below via Apple Music.
32 Levels hits shelves tomorrow via Columbia Records.
