The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness is a smash hit, but we’re sure you already know that. The album — and its string of hit singles — is inescapable, which would explain why rapper Dave East felt it was necessary to chime in and remix one of its biggest and catchiest songs, “Tell Your Friends.” Fresh off of “Harder Than Them” with Maino and Uncle Murda, Dave East has a few things to tell your friends. Listen after the jump.
Lil B, the prolific Berkeley, CA rapper, is looking to drop his latest mixtape Thugged Out Pissed Out shortly (first since collaborating with Chance the Rapper back in August), and he’s already sharing its first offering in a bit of urban menace many have forgotten existed within The BasedGod’s mutated rap DNA. The track–along with a standard DIY music video for YouTube–finds Lil B going over an eerie beat, rapping about “the underworld” which, according to Lil B, he was “raised up” in. Additionally, Lil B directly acknowledges chart-topping Canadian recording artist The Weeknd (whose stock only continues to rise) with lyrics like “Call me Lil Bars with the XO Bars/ Saying fuck The Weeknd, I can’t sing that soft”, and “A lot of suckas fake, so I can’t respect it/ Fuck The Weeknd, put that on record,” rapped repeatedly–apparently BasedGod really doesn’t like the singer-songwriter. Curious? Check out Lil B’s “4 Tha Record” after the jump, and stay tuned for his forthcoming Thugged Out Pissed Out mixtape.
This track has been out for a while, roughly two months. The track, “Drinks On Us,” first dropped back in December with Mike Will Made It’s Ransom mixtape but it didn’t start picking up steam until The Weeknd jumped on the remix. Now, we have an official, iTunes version available in all its 256kbps glory. Check it out after the jump.
