The new version is produced by Hit-Boy and includes both Cordae and Freddie Gibbs. “Spotify pulled out a leak from the ’90s that I did eons ago and asked if I could resurrect it,” Nas is quoted saying in a press release. “I can’t remember where I recorded it, or who produced it—maybe Easy Moe Bee, he was killin’ the game at the time! Carl Chery from Spotify suggested we connect with Freddie and Cordae to bring the song new life and I loved it.”
“True Nas fans are familiar with the ‘Life Is Like a Dice Game’ leak,” Carl Chery, Spotify’s Head of Urban, added. “I thought finishing the song would be a fresh spin on our Spotify Singles program. The original dates back to the ’90s but the concept feels more relevant than ever today, which makes it the perfect time to put it out.”
