The remix to Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” track has Kanye West, amongst a host of MCs, talking about a bunch of things he doesn’t care for.
But even with all that dislike, Yeezy found time on the record to mention rappers in his Chicago hometown that he has respect for.
Two of them are Count and Moonie, collectively known as the L.E.P. Bogus Boys.
“Shout out to L-E-P, Jay Boogie, right?/Chief Keef, King Louie, this is Chi, right,” Yeezy spits on the remix.
So what did L.E.P. think of Yeezy’s shout out?
“That was big,” Count told XXLMag.com. “We knew Kanye since way back, before Rocafella.
“We been messin’ with Kanye for some years, though, so Kanye has always been the homie, so we definitely appreciate Kanye for shouting us out,” Moonie added.
The two Chi-town acts are even taking their mutual respect a step further, by collaborating on a record. “Not The Same” featuring ’Ye is expected to appear on L.E.P.’s upcoming mixtape, Don’t Feed Da Killaz 4.
“He looked out for us like, ‘I got a song for y’all that I think will fit you good,’” Moonie said. “He sent it over. He did the verse, he did the beat and he did the hook.
“He didn’t have to do a song with us, but with us being longtime friends…one hand wash the other,” he continued. “Whatever we could do for Kanye on the back end, we there.”
L.E.P.’s Don’t Feed Da Killaz 4, the next installemtn in their mixtape series, is expected to drop in late June.—Mark Lelinwalla (@XXL_Mark)
