Baauer’s on a mission. Just weeks after revealing news of his upcoming album and debuting its lead single, the producer is quickly moving on to a brand-new single. This time, he enlists two of hip-hop’s heavyweights for a round on “Kung Fu.”
Future and Pusha T trade lines on what this record producer is calling “one of the [album’s] missiles.” “This is one of the ones that’s going to make some kind of noise,” he told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. He continued, “It was just taking time to bring together a bunch of projects I was working on, a bunch of tunes I was working on, and just getting to a point where I had a nice body of work that I could be proud of.”
During the short interview with Zane, Baauer also revealed that “Kung Fu” was originally meant for Pusha T’s album. After negotiations, he was able to snag it for Aa.
Other major features expected to appear on Baauer’s LP are M.I.A. and G-DRAGON. He already debuted “Day Ones” featuring Leikeli47 and Novelist. The LP is due out on March 18, and can now be pre-ordered on iTunes.
