Lil Uzi Vert and Bape founder Nigo have joined forces on a new song titled "Heavy." The track is the fourth to be taken from Nigo's upcoming project I Know Nigo after A$AP Rocky collaboration "Arya", "Want It Bad" featuring Kid Cudi, and "Hear Me Clearly" with Pusha T. The project drops March 25.

Nigo founded A Bathing Ape in 1993, launched Human Made in 2010, and collaborated with Uniqlo and Louis Vuitton after selling Bape to a Hong Kong conglomerate in 2011. The Japanese multi-hyphenate has always been a designer first, but he had a strong run of albums in the first decade of the new millennium, both on his own and with his Yokohama-based rap group, Teriyaki Boyz. I know Nigo, his first solo album since 2005's Nigo Presents: Return of the Ape Sounds, is due March 25 via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records.

Lil Uzi Vert's most recent album Eternal Atake dropped in 2020. Last year, he shared the single “Demon High" and recently featured on Mura Masa's "Bbycakes" alongside Shygirl and PinkPantheress.
