It’s been a while, Sunset. Nice to see you again. I’m back. And what better way to come back than with some extra ratchet Chief Keef. Ahhh, the simple ignorance of Keef’s lyrics, so refreshing.
Aylen teams up with Dotcom to add to some fat bass to this hood anthem. If you’re unfamiliar with The Chief, read up here (Via The Fader). As a Chicagoan myself, the hip hop scene is both really promising yet devastatingly representative of the out of hand gang violence that has plagued the Windy City for decades. Kanye often references the issue in his music–“It’s a war going on outside we ain’t safe from, I feel the pain in my city wherever I go, 314 soldiers died in Iraq, 509 died in Chicago”–so it’s interesting that he and the G.O.O.D. Music crew would put an official remix of the song on Cruel Summer, given Keef’s clear ties to gang violence in the city Kanye calls home.
Regardless, Aylen and Dotcom give this song a filthy little fixup, and the result is facemelting.
Check out more of Aylen’s work here, and get rowdy to “I Don’t Like” this weekend.
Oh, and before I forget, do yourself a favor and like this on Hype Machine. You know you want to.
