What do you get when you mix together two of the biggest bosses in EDM and Hip-Hop with the most anticipated comic book movie of the summer? Well, quite possibly the best genre collaboration that has emerged from 2016 thus far, that’s what.
Suicide Squad has been garnering a mass amount of attention from the internet, but not for the actual film. Rather, music enthusiasts around the world have been geeking over the larger than life collaborations that only a movie of this stature could conjure up.
The latest installment to this epic soundtrack is courtesy of Skrillex and Rick Ross. “Purple Lamborghini” just dropped today on one of our favorite sources for breaking tracks, Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1, and after just one listen my jaw hit the ground. Skrillex has perfected Hip-Hop and EDM infusions by working with rappers such as The Game on “El Chapo”, but this song has something indescribable.
As hard as the instrumentals hit, Rick Ross spares no mercy on the beat. With his lyricism combining Suicide Squad references with classic bars that we’ve grown familiar to from the King of MMG, we’re destined to hear this in multiple festival sets for the remaining duration of summer.
Suicide Squad along with the official soundtrack are due out on August 5th. Be prepared for features from Grimes, Eminem, Kevin Gates, Twenty One Pilots, and many more. Listen to “Purple Lamborghini” below.
