Carnage – “I Like Tuh” (Feat. ILoveMakonnen)

ILoveMakonnen and Carnage may seem like an unlikely pairing at first, but one listen to the hook on “I Love Tuh” proves Makonnen warbles just as well over EDM and trap beats as he does over twisted digital gurgles from Sonny Digital or Metro Boomin. The Atlanta rapper turns the mindless phrase “I like tuh/ Make money get turnt” into a boastful couplet, reminding us how far he’s come in just a few months — and how much farther he plans to go. But that doesn’t mean he’s above shouting out the Steak ‘n Shake because artists with real character don’t forget their roots. Speaking of which, those who have listened to Makonnen’s early Drink More Water mixtape series will welcome back the keys-and-crooning improvisational outro with easy familiarity. This is the second rap-centric collaboration Carnage has released this year; he worked with A$AP Ferg, Lil Uzi Vert, and Rich The Kid on “WDYW.” But “I Love Tuh” is markedly better than that song.
