Here’s some crunk-@ss dubstep to start of your evening. Philadelphia producer/deejay Diplo linked up with screaming pop icon Lil Jon for this long-awaited collaboration, which perfectly meshes both respective artists’ styles. Rumors of a Lil Jon and Diplo collaborating first circulated around the internet last year when they Tweeted to one another about possibly working on a song. The evidence of collaboration started to solidify when a YouTube video emerged last April featuring both men in the studio together.
“U Don’t Like Me” is a rowdy club banger that’s nothing short of hype. The video, which was created by Taiwanese production house NMA, features Diplo and the Southern hypeman squaring off in simulated video game battles resembling everything from Street Fighter to Dance Dance Revolution. Although “U Don’t Like Me” is featured on Diplo’s forthcoming Blow Your Head Vol 1: Diplo Presents DUBSTEP compilation, true enthusiasts can purchase the track on a collector’s edition picture disc vinyl 12″ limited to 1000 copies.
