Watch Ezra Koenig And ILoveMakonnen Freestyle A New Song

At the end of 2014, the iLoveMakonnen, Ezra Koenig, and Despot teamed up for an excellently gloomy remix of Makonnen’s “Down 4 So Long.” Last night the trio found themselves together again in the Vice offices, where they collaborated on the spot. Actually, Despot kind of just stood there with podcast/Twitter stars Desus & Mero while Makonnen sang over Koenig’s piano part. So consider it a freestyle of sorts; it’s definitely a step up from Makonnen’s other freestyle this weekend, and really I imagine most Makonnen songs come into the world this way.
