In the latest installment of STRFKR’s hip-hop mashup series, the Portland trio has taken on Lil Wayne‘s “Lollipop.” STRFKR frontman Josh Hodges’ rendition isn’t dripping with that sexy, “make it juicy for you,” bass beat found in Lil Wayne’s version. Instead, the melodic synth addition layered in the background gives a pleasant and poppy-touch that sounds like it’s been sampled from a Super Mario game.

STRFKR has released a new split 7″ with Champagne Champagne, a Seattle-based hip-hop group. Side A will feature STRFKR’s new “Dragon Queens” tracks, and the B side features “I Fell Through” from Champagne Champagne’s newest album, still at the studio stage.
