ASAP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator Drop New Song “Potato Salad,” Tease ‘WangSAP’ Joint Project
On Monday (July 23), A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator added another collaboration to their growing list of songs ("Who Dat Boy," "Telephone Calls"), releasing a new track called "Potato Salad." Rapping over Monica's "Knock Knock," which is produced by Kanye West, the duo also shared a video to go along with the new track.
Shot by AWGE in Paris, France, the visuals find Rocky and Tyler goofing off in front of the Eiffel Tower and spitting their bars around the historic city. "So cut the crap like shit barbers/Cause we really with the beef like closeted gay fathers/Nigga we get dollars, give 'em to Ben Baller/Exchange for them chains that's all shiny with thick water," Tyler raps.
Rocky handles the song's second verse and comes to the defense of the new wave of rappers while taking a dig at the older generation. "All the freshman in the classes/All the super seniors mumblin' and ramblin'/Mumblin and rappin'/Mumble rapping?/I find it hard to find actual talent/I find it hard to find an actual challenge," the Harlem rapper spits.
The "Potato Salad" video also includes a cameo from Jaden Smith and originally featured a teaser for Rocky and Tyler's upcoming joint project, WANG$AP. A new version of the video was uploaded to YouTube without the teaser but still features "WANG$AP Coming Soon" at the end of the visuals.
While a release date for the project has yet to be revealed, Tyler, The Creator advised fans not to get their hopes up. On Monday, the rapper said he's unsure if a joint project is actually on the way. "Ima kill rocky for that idk whats coming soon or not dont get yo hopes up nigga just be excited but enjoy it," he tweeted.
Should the WANG$AP collaboration actually drop, it will serve as a follow-up to Flacko's recently-released Testing and Tyler's 2017 Grammy-nominated album, Flower Boy.
