Chris Brown and Nas Link Up on New Song ‘Die Young’ [LISTEN]
According to the 40-song track list that Chris Brown recently shared, the song will actually not be on his forthcoming double album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, due out this summer. Serving as part cautionary tale, part somber nostalgia, Chris says that he'll be a legend if he dies young on the hook. The artwork for the track also features "RIP Chinx" written in stark white letters.
Of course, Nas shines on the track with a poignant storytelling verse.
"In the projects is made so we don't progress / Experimental tests watch us kill each other film another homicide / They tape it, nobody make it / See he gonna kill the same lab rat he was raised with," he raps.
Although it doesn't appear that this track will be on his anticipated double album, the follow up to 2015's Royalty, it's a sign that Breezy has obviously been busy in the studio. The Grammy-winning singer is also working on a documentary called Life, which arrives in theaters in June. Currently, he's on his “Party Tour,” which wraps up on May 23 in Los Angeles.
