Necro Tells Haters To Die!
The artist admits crafting the song was a struggle behind the scenes as he battled severe laryngitis in the wake of a grueling tour schedule, and what he describes as "kicking brutal verses day after day." Possibly these hardships helped cement another underground classic from hip-hop's own Prince of Darkness.
The track doesn't stray far from Necro's lyrical reign of terror, another morsel in an impressive catalog of gritty New York rap the artist compares to a "gourmet dish." Self-produced as is every track on the album, "DIE!" begins with an ominous monologue about being brought back from the beyond, right before expertly chopped kicks and snares bolster a bouncing funk bass line.
A ghostly sampled chorus sails to the forefront urging all Necro's haters to... well... die. "The most enjoyable part is seeing it come to life: the beats, the rhymes... I love it," the reigning producer, who also contriubuted a beat to Raekwon's highly acclaimed Only Built For Cuban Linx II, beams.
But don't be fooled by these tiny glimmers of joy. With lines like "The holiest place/ on earth/ an exit wound/ through your head... No matter what/ remain sadistic/ maintain persistence/ Break every chain of resistance," its clear the Psycho+Logical-Records vandal is back stalking the city.
