Published Jul 01, 2020Ty Dolla $ign has always been a reliable guest on other people's songs, so it's hardly a surprise when a bunch of A-listers return the favour. For his new tune "Ego Death," he's assembled some big names.
"Ego Death" features Kanye West, Skrillex and FKA twigs. The song's an uptempo anthem that definitely makes ego death sound cool as hell.
Of the song, Ty shared the following statement with Zane Lowe:
Basically, I was at a party, and I don't remember. I heard some girls saying something about some guy, like, 'Oh, that's the death of his ego.' I'm like, 'Wow, that's hard.' It's like I had the song 'Ego Death,' and then I made the beat. Then I was watching Instagram, and there was some video of Ye walking through Chicago. Then he was like, 'Hold up. There's a train going by.' I thought that was so hard, just seeing him just walking through Chicago by himself. So I sampled that part, and then I went out to Chicago to work on Yandhi with him. Then I played him the record, and he went crazy.
