This track comes with a bit of Hip Hop history and Nas proves that no matter how long it has been, he’s determined to finish a track. Back in 1993, Nasir Jones dropped his “Life Is Like A Dice Game” freestyle as a part of his Illmatic sessions.
The original freestyle closed with Nas saying, “When I finish the sh*t, it’s going to be a hit,” however, he didn’t complete the track until now.
“Life Is Like A Dice Game” comes courtesy of RapCaviar x Spotify Singles as the series’ third installment. Spotify’s Head of Urban, Carl Chery, reportedly was the A&R behind the completion of this decades-old track and was instrumental in getting Hit-Boy to remake the beat and produce the updated single.
“Spotify pulled out a leak from the 90s that I did eons ago, and asked if I could resurrect it,” said Nas. “I can’t remember where I recorded it, or who produced it – maybe Easy Moe Bee, he was killin’ the game at the time! Carl Chery from Spotify suggested we connect with Freddie & Cordae to bring the song new life and I loved it.”
