New York rapper, A$AP Ferg, has said that Jack Ü member and OWSLA boss Skrillex will feature on his forthcoming sophomore LP, Always Strive and Prosper. The track he's on is called "Hungry Ham," according to an interview with Ferg published on Stereogum. This will not be the first time Skrillex has collaborated with a member of the A$AP crew—in 2013 he produced "Wild For The Night," the third single from A$AP Rocky's debut album.

Other artists said to be involved include Missy Elliott, Future, Schoolboy Q, Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign, and Chris Brown doing features, while producers such as Clams Casino, Lex Luger, DJ Khalil, and Stargate will handle production.

The interview originally stated that Canadian art pop star Grimes would also feature on "Hungry Ham," but representatives for her label 4AD have said that she will not be on the track.

At the time of publishing THUMP had reached out to Skrillex for confirmation that he would be on the album but had not heard back.
