iLoveMakonnen links up with Ezra Koenig on Despot on a remix of "Down 4 So Long."

Red Bull's "20 Before 15" series already gave us the exceptional track "Knucklehead" that paired Lil Herb with Earl Sweatshirt, and now we've got an even more bonkers collab. Linking iLoveMakonnen with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig and underground New Yorker Despot, the energy drink company brings us an amazing remix of "Down 4 So Long."

What's truly remarkable here is Koenig's verse. Adopting Makonnen's pitchy, sing-song delivery, he name-drops his co-collaborators, says "Americans are wack," references Magic!'s hit "Rude," and sings about "Shmoney dancing with some goth teens." Despot cleans up with some backpack-ready rhymes after the two singers do their respective things, rounding out an excellent collaboration.

Quotable Lyrics

Summer 2014, Shmoney dancing with some goth teens
Motherfuckers leakin' nudes, why they gotta be so rude?
I lost my samurai, feel like a fuckin' rōnin
And now my only friends are Despot and Makonnen
