When it’s been two years since your last track, you better make sure it’s a good one. And what better way to ensure success than to have GOD feature on your track? Yes, GOD. The feature can be interpreted three ways: 1) Die Antwoord are actually angels sent to Earth to rap about dicks and stuff (unlikely). 2) The duo has a musical friend that thinks very highly of themselves or 3) Die Antwoord just really love stirring up some controversy. I’m going with the latter. Actually, a combination of two and three.

Here, the two take a mild approach to the track. It’s not nearly as aggressive as their previous offerings, suggesting that maybe—just maybe—they’ve mellowed out. They certainly look it on the song’s cover art, but their forthcoming mixtape suggests otherwise; Suck On This is out next Thursday, May 19.
