One side effect of iLoveMakonnen’s enlessly fascinating Gucci Mane-meets-David Bowie flow, besides the fact that it makes people want to listen to his records on repeat for hours at a time, is that it’s flexible enough to be bent to almost any purpose a producer can imagine. Between that fact and his viral appeal he’s been getting suitably out there with his collaborators–recently he released a track alongside Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, and this morning he dropped one with dance music producer DJ Carnage.

“I Like Tuh” has the nagging synth squiggles of post-“Harlem Shake” EDM, a vocal with a debt to early-aughts crunk, and a twitchy beat engineered for maximum twerkability.
