It’s no secret that our staff visits the Skrillex subreddit pretty religiously. As one of the foremost communities on Skrillex news and culture, it’s a goldmine of new information and we love all the people that have devoted their time to the endeavor.
Two nights ago, Reddit user ChipsAndDiplo posted a Kanye-inspired poem on the subreddit all about Skrillex. It’s based on Kanye’s “I Love Kanye,” and it’s been made to fit perfectly with many of the current perceptions of Skrillex.
I miss the old Skrillex, straight from LA Skrillex
Chop up the vox Skrillex, set on his goals Skrillex
I hate the new Skrillex, the bland beats Skrillex
The always trap Skrillex, quiet in the news Skrillex
I miss the sweet Skrillex, chop up the beats Skrillex
I gotta say, at that time I’d like to meet Skrillex
See I invented Skrillex, It wasn’t any Skrillex’s
And now I look and look around and there’s so many Skrillex’s
I used to love Skrillex, I used to love Skrillex
I even had the black glasses, I thought I was Skrillex
What if Skrillex made a song about Skrillex
Called “I Miss The Old Skrillex”? Man, that’d be so Skrillex
That’s all it was Skrillex, we still love Skrillex
And I love you like Skrillex loves Skrillex
However, the user does include a disclaimer at the end which reads, “I don’t actually hate the new Skrillex I just really, really needed a break from my assignments and did this out of boredom while listening to Kanye.”
It’s cool, man. We get it.
