Kanye West, Chief Keef Remix: ‘I Don’t Like’ Gets G.O.O.D. Music Treatment
Even as Kanye West jets around the world, hobnobbing with Parisian fashionistas, recording in London and shooting vids in Qatar, he’s got an ear to the Chicago streets. Proof comes with the unveiling of Yeezy’s “I Don’t Like” remix — a star-studded G.O.O.D. Music reboot of a tune by 16-year-old Windy City riser Chief Keef.
Keef’s original is, as the title suggests, all about things the MC does and doesn’t dig, from tats, clothes and weed (thumbs up) to snitches and ladies seeking relationships (big thumbs down). On the new version — which also features Big Sean, Jadakiss and Pusha T — Kanye keeps with the theme, expressing his fondness for girl-on-girl smooching and Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, among other things.
What he doesn’t like: the media, which he claims “crucify me like they did Christ/ They want to find me not breathing like they found Mike.”
Rose and Michael Jackson aren’t the only clever name-checks, and later in his verse, West seemingly references the old urban legend about a certain hip-hop strongman shaking down Vanilla Ice for money: “We hanging out that window/ it’s about to be a Suge night.”
Check out the full song below and let us know who drops the best verse.
