Suicide Squad is bringing some A-list music artists to its soundtrack with its latest song, “Sucker For Pain.” Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors are on the bill for the track.
But that’s not all. The rhymers and rockers also showed up for the music video which is influenced by the forthcoming DC Comics-based film. Interlaced with scenes from the movie, the artists also take on the personas of the starring villains. Ty Dolla $ign ends up in a cage like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Logic is in a strait jacket like Jared Leto’s Joker while others are left in a padded room like Will Smith’s Deadshot.
And like the visuals, the rhymes were also top notch — Lil Wayne, who can be infamously inconsistent with his rhymes of late, brought his A game.
“Devoted to destruction / A full dosage of detrimental dysfunction / I’m dying slow but the devil tryna rush me / See I’m a fool for pain, I’m a dummy / Might cut my head off right after I slit my throat / Tongue kiss a shark, got jealous bitches up in the boat / Eating peanut butter and jellyfishes on toast / And if I get stung I get stoked, might choke / Like I chewed a chunk of charcoal / Naked in the North Pole / That’s why my heart cold, full of sorrow, the lost soul / And only Lord knows when I’m coming to the crossroads / So I don’t fear s— but tomorrow,” raps the Cash Money leader in the third verse.
Suicide Squad is slated to hit theaters later this summer on Aug. 5. Skrillex, Rick Ross, twenty one pilots, Action Bronson, Mark Ronson, Kehlani, Kevin Gates, Eminem, Skylar Grey, Grimes, Panic! At the Disco are also listed to appear on the
