Download Life is Like a Dice Game Mp3 by Nas, Cordae & Freddie Gibbs
American rapper, songwriter, and entrepreneur, Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas remakes his 1993 song “Life Is Like A Dice Game” with an American rapper, singer, and songwriter, Cordae Amari Dunston, known mononymously as Cordae and another American rapper from Gary, Indiana, Fredrick Jamel Tipton, better known by his stage name Freddie Gibbs.
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.
Hardcore Nas fans will know that before Illmatic was even out, in 1993 Nas put out a bunch of songs that were the sessions for the album. One of those was a little freestyle called ‘Life Is Like A Dice Game‘. On it, Nas ends the short verse by saying “on my freestyle tip, when I finish this sh*t, it’s sure to be a hit”. He never went back to it… until now.
Nas drops the final version of ‘Life Is Like A Dice Game’ tonight. The beat has been remade by Hit-Boy, who Spotify’s Carl Chery suggested do it. On top of Nas’ original verse is a fresh verse and two new guest verses from Freddie Gibbs and Cordae. Cordae, like myself, was a few years away from even being born when this first dropped, so it’s insane how things work out.
On remaking the song, Nas said: “Spotify pulled out a leak from the 90s that I did eons ago, and asked if I could resurrect it. 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.”
Nas is regarded as one of the greatest rappers of all time, rooted in the New York rap scene. Cordae gained popularity by releasing remixes of popular songs, such as “My Name Is” by Eminem, and “Old Niggas” which was a response to the song “1985” by J. Cole. After initially being signed to Interscope Records in 2006, Gibbs recorded his debut studio album under the label. However, he was eventually dropped and the album was cancelled.
