For every trap denizen who makes it out, there’s at least one who lost their life trying to hustle their way to a better life. Coming on the heels of My Moment and We in This B*tch 1.5, the third single off DJ Drama‘s forthcoming full-length finds the Gangsta Grillz heavyweight and his collaborators pouring out some liquor for their fallen homies, in recognition of the fact that “[r]eal n**gas Never Die,” but instead live on in the memory of those they’ve left behind. An appropriately mournful, string-laced beat by producer Cardiak sets the mood for heartfelt bars by Northeastern vet Jadakiss, New West stalwart Nipsey Hussle, and an uncharacteristically emotional Jeezy. Cee-Lo Green rounds out the guest lineup, tying the record together with an understated but memorable hook. Fans will be able to find this cut, the aforementioned singles and much more on Quality Street Music, scheduled to drop October 2.
