Skrillex and Rick Ross

All those prayers for more Rick Ross and Skrillex collabs are about to be answered.

While Suicide Squad met with tepid reviews, the soundtrack's breakout hit “Purple Lamborgini” was an instant critic and fan favorite. We here at Billboard Dance have listened to it, like, a million times, so when we got the chance to talk to Ross in Miami, we had to ask if we'd ever hear more.

“You are, you are, you are,” he repeated. “Shout out to my big homie Skrillex. I just spoke to him maybe a week or two ago, and we talking about our next collaboration for my project.”

Ross agrees that Skrillex' touch was an incredible addition to the Bawse rapper's signature sound.

“I love how he took my heavy beat, heavy grimy sound, and he added that electricity in that chorus,” he said. “As soon as I heard, it I was like, that's it.”

Ross is still riding on the success of Black Market and currently reflecting on the recent certified-platinum status of his debut LP Port of Miami. He celebrated the album's 10-year anniversary Monday, Aug. 29, with a star-studded performance live streamed via Tidal.
