The Sucklord is clearly excited about “The Super Suck Up”. In an official statement he said, “It’s great that I’m baller enough that all these successful artists have to make my shit for me. All I have to do is design some shitty grafix and wait for the check. I love how DKE is pimping real artists for my benefit.”
