A star-studded cast of rappers link up on designer Nigo‘s first album since 2000. Material from I Know NIGO! was first teased during Paris Fashion Week, when a then-unreleased Pusha T track made its debut during Nigo’s collaboration with Kenzo Paris Fashion Week show. The fashion show also including cuts from Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Rocky and Kid Cudi.
On Friday, I Know NIGO! was officially released just days after a track list featuring Pharrell Williams, Lil Uzi Vert, A$AP Ferg, Pop Smoke, Clipse and more was teased. Previously released singles from the album include “Heavy” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, “Hear Me Clearly” featuring Pusha T, “Want It Bad” with Kid Cudi and “Arya” with A$AP Rocky.
With production from Pharrell Williams, Clipse connect on “Punch Bowl”, their last collaboration since “Use This Gospel” on 2019 Kanye West album Jesus Is King.
Still on his Call Me If You Get Lost tour, Tyler, the Creator released a self-directed visual for single “Come On, Let’s Go” with a surprise appearance from Williams. The song makes the second track from the album that Tyler appears on, as he also opens the album with “Lost and Found Freestyle 2019” with A$AP Rocky, their first newly-released collaboration in four years.
In February, a street race visual for “Want It Bad” was released, just in time for Nigo and Cudi to collaborate on an exclusive t-shirt for NBA All-Star Weekend in Cleveland.
Published by by Victor Victor Worldwide and Universal Music Group, I Know NIGO! is executive-produced by Williams. On the album’s cover art, artist KAWS puts his spin on the Victor Victor Worldwide dog logo, and the CD is currently available for pre-order.
