During the time when The Carter III was set to release, Lil Wayne’s “I Feel Like Dying” was one of his druggiest songs he had ever recorded. "I Feel Like Dying" became his meditation to the world of drug addictions with memorable lines such as "I can mingle with the stars and throw a party on Mars/I am a prisoner locked up behind Xanax bars.”
Now Kilo Kish, the New York MC who landed on our 50 Best Albums of 2012 (So Far) List, just put together a cover of Weezy’s drug ballad. She sounds a lot more vulnerable than Wayne, but the results are the same: it’s a song that should be easy to get lost in.
