    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Turn Down for What” is a single by DJ Snake and Lil Jon. It was released at the end of 2013. inspiration from Topher Leiby.


    Lil Jon and DJ Snake had met several years prior to recording the song. In December 2013, “Turn Down for What” was released on Columbia Records. In an interview about the song, DJ Snake said:

    When I hit up the big homie Jon and asked him if he wanted to be on the track, this song is a pretty balling song. He heard the beat and was instantly down with the vision. What he sent me back, though, absolutely blew my mind. I knew Jon was one of the best to do it when it comes to hooks, but he absolutely killed it on this joint.
    Lil Jon said in an interview:
    When DJ Snake sent me the track with a sample of Redman saying ‘bang the underground,’ he wanted me to redo it with my voice. When I heard the song I was like this beat is too crazy for that sample. I wanted to make it hip and current and the first thing that came to mind was the phrase ‘Turn Down For What!’

Music video

    An accompanying music video for “Turn Down for What” was directed by the filmmaking duo The Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) and released on March 13, 2014. The clip stars one of the directors Daniel Kwan. He explained: “For a while Daniel and I had been wanting to explore male sexuality in a really weird way. For some reason our brains came up with this image, and this other universe where dudes are so pumped up on their own dicks—and they’re so into their testosterone—that the way that they show that is by breaking shit with their dicks. So, whatever happens, that would just be a funny logical progression.”

    Jason Newman of Rolling Stone described the video as “perfect insanity” and added: “It’s hard to pinpoint specifically what makes the video for DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” so compelling and ripe for repeat viewings.” Edwin Ortiz of Complex called it “incredibly absurd and awesome” and wrote: “The hard-hitting EDM record delivers an undeniable vibe that listeners can’t help but mosh out to, and that’s clearly evident in the accompanying music video.” Writing for Idolator, Robbie Daw said: the video “takes things to a whole new level of WTF-ness not quite seen before.”
