‘80s heads, prepare for a blast from the past—on the latest leak off his forthcoming full-length, R.O.M.E. takes inspiration from Back to Life (However Do You Want Me), the 1989 hit from English R&B group Spoul II Soul. Titled Back 2 Life, this smooth banger sees the young emcee rhyming over a throwback beat co-produced by Tuffy and BYI labelmate Lala Romero (the latter of whom also lends her guest vocals to the cut). For more, check out ROME’s BYI Entertainment/Los Angeles Leakers-presented The Impossible LP when it touches down August 3.
