If you have something negative to say about East Harlem or anyone repping red, Billionaire Burke's "WhG5pty" video will make you think twice.

Pronounced "whoopty," the drill track features a menacing harpsichord that plays over shots of the staircase prominently seen in the latest Joker and immortalized on social media. The video, directed by JL Shot, also plays off the line "big hats around here" by the heads of certain members in Burke's posse swelling on cue.

In an email, Burke broke down the heavy presence of his clique in the lyrics and video: "I was at the club and all I heard was blue music playing and mad people dancing to blue music so I had to make something for team Red!"

"WhG5pty" will be on Burke's upcoming This Is The Jet project, due in the spring. It follows Rise To Greatness which was released last August.
