Yasiin Bey Drops A Brilliant New Verse On Golden Rules' "Never Die"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Given how prone Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) is to seclusion, today is a red letter day. The Brooklyn MC has lent his rhyming talents to the latest single from UK duo Golden Rules, a groovy number based upon lush organic instrumentation entitled "Never Die." The cut premiered over at Complex, which dutifully noted that the cut will be featured on Golden Rules' upcoming LP Golden Ticket, which drops August 7th. Comprised of London producer Paul White and MC Eric Biddines, the group shows a great degree of promise--especially on "Never Die," providing the mighty Mos with more than enough competition and driving him to stay on his game. Listen to the new single below and, for good measure, follow along with Mr. Bey's transcribed lyrics below.

Yasiin Bey's verse:

they say the chief of the tribe took a handsome bribe

now his face is everywhere but he's hard to find

super prime, on the grind, in the modern times

gains from the game in exchange for a sober mind

and young’un you can hug the block, but it won't hug back

until it do, and it squeeze and your spine go snap

like feet chasing paper then his lungs just collapse

ain't no freedom at the trap, it’s as simple as that

pay a hater no mind, because that don't matter

why whip slaves when you can just kill master?

slaves getting brave to guard masters’ interests.

they too shall feel it once we snap the clip in

so no threats only oaths, get well or catch hell

shop open get dosed, medina hours baby, we never close

and how ever the banks go this balance don't broke

salaam folks
