Danger Mouse and Black Thought will soon unleash their highly anticipated collaborative album Cheat Codes this Friday, August 12. It does feel something like an event thanks to the pedigree of the two principal artists – Danger Mouse rode his Beatles/JAY-Z mashup project The Grey Album to become an in-demand producer, and Black Thought is widely regarded as one of the best rappers ever. Then there's the matter of the project's singles, which have enlisted a lot of big names: Joey Bada$$ and Russ joined Dylan Cartlidge on "Because," and Michael Kiwanuka appeared on "Aquamarine."

Today, the album's final single is out. The features on it are perhaps the best ones yet: A$AP Rocky appears on the track with El-P and Killer Mike of Run The Jewels. With a beat microdosed on psychedelic funk and samples from gangster movies, the song finds matching energy in each of the selected rappers. There's underlying chemistry to the collaboration, too, thanks to Danger Mouse's presence – he executive produced Rocky's 2015 project AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP and brought Run The Jewels onto his song "Chase Me" from the film Baby Driver. Listen below.
