Published Apr 19, 2016In what might be the most momentous team-up this side of Simon & Garfunkel, rappers ILOVEMAKONNEN and Lil B have joined forces on a new track.
The track maintains Makonnen's signature sound, drilling a repetitive synth line into your head over its six-minute runtime. Of course, it's hardly an unwelcome backdrop — particularly for Makonnen and the Based God to deliver some confessional raps about the entire industry stealing their swag.
When he released the track, Makonnen professed his love for Lil B with the following statement:
THANK U EVERYONE AND U ARE ALL WELCOME!
THANK YOU BASED GOD!
YOU ARE THE LEGEND I ASPIRE TO BE!THANK U FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR HUMANITY! U ARE A TRUE SUPERSTAR IN HUMAN FORM SO GLAD TO CALL U MY FRIEND/ BROTHER,/MENTOR /INSPIRATION TO US ALL!!!!!!
SO PROUD TO SHARE THIS TRACK WITH THE INTERNET!
- I LOVE MAKONNEN
Apparently ILOVEMAKONNEN and Lil B are plotting a joint tour for later in the year, so hopefully this won't be the last time these two team up.
