Some collaborations are just meant to happen, as UK producer Paul White and Florida native Eric Biddenes recently proved after linking up to form a duo called Golden Rules. Following the release of their Golden Ticket album, White put his own touch on a cut off the album called “Never Die,” delivering a remix of the single with assistance from Yasiin Bey (also known as Mos Def) and Freddie Gibbs. If you’ve ever dreamed of a collaboration between the two, your wish has officially been granted.
Backed by an entirely new beat for the remix, the track finds Bey and Gibbs in their element as both lyricists shine. Proving that hard work pays off, Gibbs raps of a time when Kayne West revealed he wasn’t feeling his sound. Look at him now. Salute.
