DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” is the kind of ungodly, Lime-A-Rita-soaked EDM-rap hybrid that fuels thinkpieces on how millenials are ruining culture, which is precisely why it’s worthwhile; now, two official remixes have popped up in as many days. The first has 2 Chainz, Juicy J, and French Montana popping a wheelie on the zeitgeist, appropriately shouty with just a hint of Dad vibes (2 Chainz shines here, and doesn’t miss an opportunity to toss in a thot reference). But the dancehall remix has the edge here, with verses from Yeezus scene-stealer Assassin, Konshens, and Chi Chi Ching (whose unofficial cover of the original inspired the remix). If Lil Jon’s open to suggestions, I’d like to propose Casino and Gunplay for the next version.
