Following a two-decade hiatus from putting out new music, Nigo has returned with a new album stocked with appearances from hip-hop’s leading names. I Know NIGO! features Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert, among others. Right before the project’s debut, the designer shared a music video for his Tyler, the Creator collaboration, entitled “Come On, Let’s Go.”
