Wendy’s Dropped a Rap Mixtape . . . and It’s Shockingly Good?
So a while back, someone at a Wendy’s marketing meeting apparently said, “Hey, what if we make a hip-hop mixtape?” Because they actually did it . . .
Wendy’s dropped its mixtape “We Beefin?” on Friday and, against all odds, it is NOT terrible. Some people might say it’s actually good. It’s clearly well-made, with professional beats and production . . . and rap talent.
The tracks all feature a female rapper . . . who’s supposed to be Wendy.
Let’s put it this way: It sounds just like so much of the hip-hop you hear today. Which is either a compliment to Wendy’s, or a bad sign for rap. The reality is probably somewhere in the middle.
The mixtape has five tracks that focus on two things: Wendy’s food, and their superiority over other fast food burger joints. And it’s getting high praise on social media. So . . . yeah. This is life now.
You can hear the whole mixtape on Spotify, Google Play, and Apple Music. The whole thing is about 10 minutes long.
