UPDATE: Zhu Shares Skrillex Collab, ‘Working For It’
Zhu x Skrillex x THEY - Working For It (Radio Rip) [Mind Of A Genius]

UPDATE: Zhu shared the full version on Zane Lowe’s radio show Oct. 22. Stream it above.

UPDATE: Zhu’s sixth and most anticipated taste of his Genesis Series arrived today in the animated clip for Working For It, a piano-driven hip hop beat featuring Skrillex and new Mind Of A Genius signees THEY on vocals.

Still no word on a release date for the package, but stream the official teaser for Working For It below, and find links to the other Genesis tracks further down.

Fans at San Diego’s CRSSD Music Festival were the first to publicly hear one of 2015’s most anticipated collabs and the first-ever joint effort from two local titans when Zhu dropped his collaboration with Skrillex.

Short clips shared to Instagram offer a decent listen to what is rumored to be called Working For It, a thoroughly West Coast hip hop beat from two producers exemplifying to a new generation of California talent–if you were disappointed with the return of Dr. Dre, this might be what you were hoping for. When placed alongside the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony collab, the Genesis Series EP is shaping up to be a very hip hop affair.

Dancing Astronaut dug up the below video on Reddit and points out that Zhu and Skrillex’ link dates back to Stereosonic in 2014 when Skrillex finished out Zhu’s set and the internet decided they might be the same person for a little bit.

With four Genesis Series tunes already shared in his collabs with A-Trak, AlunaGeorge, Gallant, and BT-n-H, look for this to hit inboxes and SoundCloud shortly as have the rest of his Genesis premieres.
