Nas Turns Back Clock With Freddie Gibbs, Cordae & Spotify

Nas taps Hit-Boy, Freddie Gibbs and Cordae to finish a freestyle he did in way back in 1993

Cordae . The new song comes 28 years after Nas unleashed a freestyle titled Life Is Like A Dice Game as part of the legendary Illmatic sessions. At the end of the freestyle, Nas says it will be a hit when he finishes this song. He never really finished the song, though, until now. Nas and Carl Chery, Spotifys Head of Urban, tapped Grammy Award-winning producer Hit-Boy to remake the beat and had Gibbs and Cordae send some verses for the new track. Nas recorded a whole new verse on top of the original, making the song a full-circle moment. Spotify pulled out a leak from the 90s that I did eons ago, and asked if I could resurrect it, Nas said in a statement. I cant 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 and Cordae to bring the song new life, and I loved it. Chery, who also A&Rd the single, added, True Nas fans are familiar with the Life Is Like a Dice Game leak. I thought finishing the song would be a fresh spin on our Spotify Singles program. The original dates back to the 90s, but the concept feels more relevant than ever today, which makes it the perfect time to put it out. While Nas resurrects freestyles from back in the day, the Queensbridge legend is gearing up to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his second studio album, It Was Written
