Continuing one of the best re-brands in history, Wendy's has cemented their "cool fast food restaurant" image even further by dropping a mixtape.
Yep, really. Mixtapes aren't just for Drake and Post Malone now.
The mixtape drops now. Not pulling punches. We Beefin’. pic.twitter.com/H1Rm1ODYC4— Wendy's (@Wendys) March 23, 2018
We Beefin' is basically an extension of Wendy's tradition of bashing their competitors, specifically McDonald's and Burger King.
One of the lines is "You No. 1? That's a joke / Why your ice cream machine always broke?"
The mixtape is available on Apple Music and Spotify and includes iconic fast food anthems like "4 for $4", "Twitter Fingers", and "Rest in Grease".
Oh, and bonus - as dumb as this is, it's not the worst piece of rap music you've ever heard. The rapper, who they call Queen Wendy, has a little bit of a Nicki Minaj vibe and it doesn't TOTALLY suck.
Who produced @Wendys mixtape???? Who wrote it??? Who rapped on it???? Why is it fire??? Im so confused and blown away omg— Gaynsta 🌈 (@hashtagn0filt3r) March 24, 2018
Whys @Wendys mixtape better than 90% of today's rappers— JaReuel (@LukeReuel) March 23, 2018
Now the question is...will other fast food joints follow suit? Will McDonald's clap back with a diss track of their own? Will Taco Bell fire off a burger-free work of art? Will Chick Fil A release an album that can't be downloaded on Sundays? Only time will tell, but for now Wendy's is the queen of food-based hip-hop culture. Check out the full mixtape below and don't even ACT like you're not a little bit intrigued.
Releasing a fire mixtape? yes, please pic.twitter.com/uGMSJ5kZDY— rose (@whaddafrickrose) March 23, 2018
