D.R.A.M. and Trippie Redd. It's the kind of collaboration that makes no sense at all until you actually hear it.

D.R.A.M.'s sunny, always-smiling persona isn't the most obvious match for Trippie's dark, emotional sound. But when D.R.A.M. shared a snippet of the song on Twitter earlier this week, the collision of their worlds started to make a little more sense. They're both hip-hop artists who can stretch their vocals in all kinds of directions, and that's exactly what they do all over Slade Da Monsta's thundering production.

Who knew it would sound this good to hear Trippie's wailing vocals behind a D.R.A.M. verse? Hip-hop is heading in such strange, exciting directions right now. Listen below.
