Asaad has been churning out an insane amount of tracks over the course of 2016; so far, he’s at 275 individual original releases, and he plans to drop 366 songs by the end of the year. Lifted from his ORANGE BATH EP, “Meet Ye” is a particularly special cut with a fascinating backstory involving Kanye West and an untimely car accident. Asaad explained its origins to Pigeons and Planes:

“Kanye and [A$AP] Bari were in the studio and as Bari was shutting his computer it accidentally started playing a song, which is the sample you hear. When I got to the studio I didn’t have a pen or anything, so I ended up writing my verse with a sketching pencil on some random fashion drawings.”

On the way to the studio, Asaad was in a car crash that further inspired the hazy, droning vibe of the track. Stream “Meet Ye” below.
