Though there are people who manage to hang onto life for a hundred years or more, precious few leave this world without some unfinished business. As Johnny Polygon reminds us on his latest promo single, You’re Never Too Old to Die Young. Over a dreamy instrumental by YOG$, the beatsmith who brought us Ambient Pack, the Booth fave shares some sung and flowed reflections on the struggle to find happiness and meaning in the shadow of mortality. Heavy stuff, but the Oklahoma repper executes the concept with a light touch, making existential angst sound downright soothing. Never Too Old isn’t part of a larger set, but fans can click here to purchase the record via BandCamp.
