A little over two weeks ago Tommy Lee was posting – with evident glee – about the fact that Post Malone’s newest track is named after him. It’s actually a Tyla Yaweh track, with Malone providing guest vocals. His verse opens with this sequence of lines: “Pull up with a drum like I’m Tommy Lee / Yaweh got a stick, came to rock with me / Milli’ on wrist, ain’t no rocks on me / I’m pretty as fuck, wanna copy me.”
Lee has answered in the affirmative to the concluding lyric. The left side of his face now features a number of stars and an upside down treble and bass clef arranged to resemble a love heart. The tattoo on the right side of his face is significantly larger and appears to consist of Japanese script. Lee’s post shouted out tattoo artist Mario Barth, who founded the international Starlight Tattoo brand.
Lee and Malone first linked up on the track ‘Over Now’ from Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys LP in 2018. Lee has also revealed he’ll be providing a remix of Yaweh and Malone’s tribute to him.
Lee released a couple of new songs himself earlier in June. The two tracks, ‘Tops’ and ‘Knock Me Down’, both came with videos directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst. ‘Knock Me Down’ features US hip hop artist Killvein, while ‘Tops’ includes vocals by LA-based, South African rapper Push Push.
Lee has also announced his new solo album Andro will be out on October 16th, 2020. The 13-track record is awash with guest vocalists including Lukas Rossi, PAV4N, Shotty Horroh, Josh Todd, King Elle Noir, PLYA and ‘My Dick’ rapper Mickey Avalon.
