Kanye West, Travis Scott Team for Psychedelic ‘Piss on Your Grave’
Kanye West and Travis Scott have united for a druggy, experimental track called “Piss on Your Grave,” a track off Scott’s upcoming debut LP, Rodeo, due out September 4th, Noisey reports. The newly leaked song finds the G.O.O.D. Music rappers threatening their foes with urination over lumbering drums and psychedelic blues-rock guitar riffs.
With its nonlinear structure, random lyrics (including a list of all the places the duo would like to “piss”) and abrupt ending, “Grave” recalls the abrasive style of West’s most recent LP, 2013′s Yeezus.
The song’s origins are hazy, but intriguing. Last year, rumors swirled about a West-Paul McCartney collaboration called “Piss on My Grave” or “Piss in Your Grave,” reportedly slated for West’s upcoming solo LP, tentatively titled Swish. Despite the grammatical switch-up, the rumored McCartney collab is assumedly connected to the Scott track, though it’s unclear if the former Beatle performed on the leaked cut. A representative for McCartney declined to comment.
West and McCartney did collaborate on the rapper’s emotional ballad “Only One” and the folky, Rihanna-fronted sing-along “FourFiveSeconds.” ”Oh, it was great, man! It was really exciting,” McCartney told Rolling Stone about working with West. “I didn’t know what was going to happen from one minute to the next. But then he’d send me these hits! Suddenly I’m working with Kanye – and then suddenly I’ve got a hit with Rihanna! But it’s cool!”
Earlier this month, West brought up Scott during a performance at Los Angeles’ FYF Fest, with the latter performing a mini-set of singles “Upper Echelon” and “Antidote.” Scott also features on West’s gritty track “All Day,” which leaked online last year in a rough quality version without the Houston rapper.
