serpentwithfeet and ty dolla $ign have got “receipts”

June 28, 2019

Well, this is a surprising collaboration. Our friend serpentwithfeet has teamed up for Ty Dolla $ign for their new single, “Receipts.” Weirdly, the first thing the song, with its spooky church-meet- a-young-a-Kirk-Franklin vibes, made me think of was Chance the Rapper. Is that a good or a bad thing? You decide. Either way, the inspiration serpentwithfeet drew from is the through-line between this track and his work as a solo artist, finding its roots in paganism and appreciation for nature. “I began writing ‘Receipts’ when I first moved to Los Angeles last summer,” serpentwithfeet told Stereogum. “I was and still am mystified by the city—the mountains, the men, the hummingbirds. I played an early demo for Ty Dolla $ign and he asked to join me on the track. ”
