Coming soon: A collaboration between Skrillex and Kanye West?
Well, it seems the answer is yes, though we're not exactly sure when (or even where) that collabo will materialize ... though we suspect that's because even Skrillex himself doesn't know the answer to those questions.
"I did some music with Kanye," he told The Daily Beast. "And from what I know, it's actually going to be the first song on his new album."
Cool. Of course, the only point of contention seems to be what new album Skrill was talking about ... their team-up could either appear on 'Ye's upcoming G.O.O.D. Music release, Cruel Summer (due September 4), or his sixth solo album, which producer No I.D. recently told MTV News is also in the works:
"I'm not working on that [Cruel Summer] album, I'm working on his album," I.D. said. "This is Kanye. You know what to expect from the family. He hasn't missed yet, so don't expect him to miss ... It's what you expect and everything you don't expect."
And a Skrillex collaboration would definitely fit with that description. And perhaps we'll be able to get an answer at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, where both Skrill and 'Ye are up for Moonmen. Skrillex's reps have "no comment" on the collabo, and at press time, MTV News' attempts to seek comment from West's reps proved unsuccessful.
