Anticipation continues to build as BAPE founder and KENZO fashion designer Nigo drops track after tracks off his upcoming project, I Know NIGO.
Following collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi and Pusha T, Nigo brings it back to his roots with his former rap group reuniting for a bilingual banger.
Teriyaki Boyz consists of Japanese rappers Imari, Ryo-Z, Verbal and Wise with Nigo taking the role of DJ. Most famous for their hit single from Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift, the group comes back to spit bars over intrinsically danceable production from Pharrell. Breaking language in between each bar, the Teriyaki Boyz have no shortage of energy on the track — trading flows effortlessly with one another.
“Might see me in a UFO [?]
Stay E.T., no phone home…”“Morë Tonight” — Teriyaki Boyz & Nigo
Almost all of the artists from Nigo’s original album preview have revealed their contributions, with Lil Uzi Vert, Famlay and Tyler the Creator collaborations on the way as well as a few more additional tracks. Nigo has proven himself to be a tastemaker in both fashion and music as the curation of this project becomes more apparent with one star-studded guest after another.
Rumored to drop in late March, I Know NIGO is building hype at a fast pace, as fans will just have to wait and see what Nigo has in store.
