This is a pleasant surprise. When two spotty Hip-Hop A-listers and an actress combine over a beat that starts off like a John Wayne movie, you don’t really know what to expect. However, once the sun sets and dust bunnies finish rolling through this new single’s intro, the Wild West-like beat turns tight and timely, delivering a rather unique sound that Mighty Mos and Roc Nation’s underground savior proceed to wreck with extremely proper microphone poetics.
In case you’re curious, this out of the box winner is set to appear on the soundtrack of a short film of the same name, called They Die By Dawn And Other Short Stories. Enjoy.
