It's hard to talk when your mouth is on fire, but YouTube interview series Hot Ones actually gets some really interesting stories out of its victims.

The web series recently sat down with rapper A$AP Ferg, who took the challenge with a smile. Host Sean Evans asked Ferg who among his many collaborators was the most fun, and Ferg said it had to be Skrillex.

He tells how one day, while hanging with Skrillex and Diplo at the former's home in LA, Comedian Hannibal Buress stormed into the studio drunk as a skunk. Next thing he knows, Katy Perry walks in, and Skrillex cues up a beat -- the same that would end up being used on Ferg and Skrillex' Crystal Caines collab “Hungry Ham.”

Diplo, who's been known to spit a few hot lines from time to time, started rappin' on the beat. Buress started crackin' rhymes next, and then Skrillex started recording some adlibs. Katy Perry even threw a hook on there.

Ferg says he still has that unreleased, all-star version of “Hungry Ham.” He even says he may one day share it with fans. Fingers crossed it ever sees the light of day. Watch A$AP Ferg's full struggle on Hot Ones below.
