Danny Brown - Die Like a Rockstar

[Verse 1]
Brown bless the mic like gesundheit
Bud 'bout the size of a bonsai
Kick it like Muay Thai, flow like Sci-Fi in high def
I'm righteous and still bust a nut up on a bitch chest
The verbal folklore been explored
And employed by none other than them fools with the gold
And them bankrolls explode
And your bitch in my target when I shoot my load
Bullseye, my eyes tie-dyed
Fried off the same shit that rockstars died... from
Smoke somethin' with your man, bitch
Like Wyclef, used to sell the cannabis
Manuscript, sick shit, prescription addiction
Sniffing Adderall off the counter in my kitchen
Tripping off the shit that had Brian Wilson flipping
Experiment so much, it's a miracle I'm livin'

And I'ma die like a rockstar
Die like a rockstar
I'ma die like a rockstar
Die like a rockstar
I'ma die like a rockstar
Die like a rockstar
I'ma die like a rockstar

In “Die Like a Rockstar” Brown raps about his copious drug experimentation and how he will inevitably die like a stereotypical rockstar. The song is also somewhat inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s films as said in this interview: “Those rock star references, that’s me just watching a lot of documentaries. I was thinking like a Quentin Tarantino movie when I heard the beat, you know how his movies always start off crazy and action-packed? I wanted the beginning to be wild and crazy, but still scare the shit out of you at the same time. I didn’t want to make a party, because to me it’s a party song! Dark ass party! It’d be a party song in hell. I didn’t want to make a party song about drugs that sounds cool, like a Juicy J song. The parts with celebrities…Wikipedia will take you a long way!“ Producer SKYWLKR says the sample came from Melvin Bliss' “Synthetic Substitution“. A popular soul track, “Synthetic Substitution” was also sampled in Naughty By Nature’s hit “O.P.P.“, Wu-Tang Clan’s “Bring da Ruckus“, and G.O.O.D. Music’s “New God Flow“.
