"Tuesday" rapper iLoveMakonnen and "Bricks" DJ Carnage have unveiled the music video for their recent collaboration "I Like Tuh." One of the most outrageous things you will see all day, the "I Like Tuh" music video is more of a short film at nine minutes in length as they follow two drug dealers in a poorer area of Echo Park as they strike it rich, selling drugs and creating friends and enemies along the way.
The video is incredibly over the top with outrageous effects and a death per minute ratio that exceeds zero. They find a new blue drug with a sad face on it that corners the market and gives the trailer park buddies or potential borthers wealth they have never seen before. It ends with a scene at iLoveMakonnen and Carnage's empty house, seemingly dedicated to parties, girls shaking their butts and drugs because, as Makonnen says in the chorus, "I like tuh get money and get turnt."

This unlikely collaboration between a soft-spoken rapper and energetic trap, big-room DJ apparently happened easily. During New Year's Eve week, Makonnen performed at Carnage's show on Pier 94 in New York City, and during their time together they made this track.
"We finally ended up in the same place at the same time, booked a room at Daddy's House in NYC, and voilà," Carnage tells BuzzFeed Music. "Everything came together in under an hour."
"I've been a fan of Makonnen's since stumbling upon his classic early YouTube videos. He has a natural knack for melody, it just took a while for people to catch up to him," he said.
This could be on Carnage's upcoming album or Makonnen's, but since it is a Carnage featuring iLoveMakonnen track, it seems more likely to be a part of the Los Angeles-based DJ's LP.
ILoveMakonnen is currently working on an album that he hopes will be out in June or July. The LP will have collaborations alongside the likes of Rihanna, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Diplo and Skrillex.
