Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Rolling Stone praised the production saying, "The sinister, bass-heavy track is the ideal backdrop for verses in which both rappers go into full-on supervillain mode, reveling in nihilistic one-liners and the menacing sound of their own voices.".[1][2]

Music video[edit]

On July 15, 2011, a behind-the-scenes look at the video was released.[3] The music video, directed by Jason Goldwatch and filmed in Los Angeles, California, was released July 20, 2011. The video features cameo appearances from the rest of Odd Future. Rolling Stone stated that "Pusha T remains one of the sharpest, most subtle emcees in hip-hop, but he can't help but be upstaged in the video by the wildly charismatic Tyler, who mugs for the camera at every opportunity."[1]
