Listen: Portugal. The Man ft. Danny Brown—”Evil Friends” (Remix)

The ubiquitous Danny Brown teams up with Portland, Oregon, rock band Portugal. The Man to release a remix to their song “Evil Friends.” The remix came to fruition courtesy of Jake One and places Danny Brown’s raps front and center. In this remix, we hear the Detroit rapper paying homage to his friends who have been with him since the beginning and disregarding everyone else. Taking from Portugal. The Man’s original beat and song lyrics, the remix featuring Danny Brown is especially soulful and contemplative as he is forced to distance himself from strangers looking for handouts. It’s almost as if “Evil Friends” had been beckoning a rap verse since its inception with its loop-friendly melody and thanks to Jake One, it got the perfect-fitting rapper to make it happen. Listen to the “Evil Friends” remix featuring Danny Brown below and watch the original music video by Portugal. The Man right here.
