The Sydney native also revealed his forthcoming single, "Break Yourself," featuring Far East Movement, in a video teaser provided exclusively to Billboard. 

Boasting smooth rapped verses and an instantly infectious chorus over sub-shaking bass notes, the track is a stellar specimen of the so-called "G-house" sound currently gaining traction.

Hook N Sling describes the collaborative process with fellow Los Angeles residents Far East Movement as "perfect," believing the single represents a union of their divergent backgrounds and strengths.

"The Far East guys and myself wanted to do something creative that brought together our own styles and influences," he says.
