Chris Brown and Nas Team Up for ‘Die Young’

After teaming up with Sevyn on “Parachute,” Chris Brown switches gears to a more important topic on his new song “Die Young.” The Nas-assisted song pays homage to late rapper Chinx, while exploring the topic of police brutality against Black men.

“Hear the gun shots sound, another black man down / ‘Nother innocent killed by the police, which side are you on? / All the violence is red and blue,” Brown sings.

Nas adds a hard-hitting verse about how ‘the system’ is set up to work against Black people. “In the projects it’s made, so we don’t progress / Experimental test, watch us kill each other / Film another homicide, they tape it, nobody make it /See, he goin’ to kill the same lab rat he was raised with,” he raps.

Chinx was gunned down in 2015 in Queens. He was 31.

While “Die Young” won’t be featured on Brown’s upcoming double album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, fans can enjoy it below.
