As the title of his forthcoming junior album, Born To Lose, Built To Win, suggests, Juelz Santana‘s determined to climb to the top regardless of who or what stands in his way, and many of his recent buzz tracks have found him taking aim at all those who have predicted (or even prayed) that he’d fall off the face of the rap game. On his latest street single, Days of Our Lives, Santana sounds as driven as ever, and his passionate verses will have longtime fans half-expecting him to shout-out Roc after he does Dipset/Skull Gang. As if that weren’t enough, Torrico contributes a percussion-whistle beat reminiscent of Just Blaze‘s work from back in the day. Though Hova and Cam have been quick to shoot down rumors of a Dynasty or Diplomat reunion, this nostalgic banger is sure to please listeners who have long hoped for a return to that era, as well as raising anticipation for the fall release of Santana’s latest LP.
