"Be Somebody," the latest song from Clams Casino's upcoming album 32 Levels, brings together two of the producer's most respected collaborators: Lil B and A$AP Rocky. Seperately, these rappers have created some of their career-defining songs with Clams Casino's instrumentals, and it's very satisfying to hear them together on the same track.
Clams briefly discussed the song before its premiere on Zane Lowe's World Record on Beats 1. Mikky Ekko provided the background vocal samples for the track, which was originally supposed to appear on Rocky's second album At. Long. Last. ASAP. "I went over to Rocky's place in New York and just played him some stuff... Eventually he said he wanted it for his [album], and I said 'Alright fine, we'll trade something'...He didn't end up finishing it in time for his album." 32 Levels is out July 15.
