A-Trak’s new track features Quavo and Lil Yachty.
And features even more than that. The DJ’s latest collab with rappers of the moment, Quavo and Lil Yachty prove one thing: A-Trak holds as much staying power as they do. Who better to collaborate with fresh rapping talent than one of Kanye West’s former tour DJs?
The song brings a bit more than his past remixes (the DJ just released a ten-year retrospective album on his former work), and it shows. Contrasting his decade of work against fresher, young talent Quavo and Lil Yachty makes the perfect mash-up of experience and youth, the tried-and-true and the new.
A-Trak’s beat on the track progresses dynamically. It’s just as easy to imagine shopping at Forever 21 with it playing in the background, or feeling the gradual bass through a ping-pong table in a college dorm. It has the same minimalistic feel of the beat on Drake’s Hotline Bling, but it’s a bit more grown up.
The trio’s history goes beyond this track – they’ve been playing similar events, including the Fools’ Gold Day Off festivals. The latest of which is to make its way down from Paris to New York, is set for August 19th in Brooklyn, New York (yep, that Brooklyn- just a few stops on the L away).
If you’re looking to make “I fuck with lil shawty ’cause she vacuum, suck me in the living room” catchy: A-Trak, Quavo, and Lil Yachty are the ones to go for.
