This release is already a month old and contains tracks that are composed from 2009 till 2013, but it sure sounds timeless. Like is a member of the well-known trio Pac Div. Recently he also released his first official solo instrumental debut, entitled ‘Zesty‘. We thought this collection of older material is worth the spotlight as well. Delicious hip-hop tracks that are in need of some raps. It would be cool if a solo project from Like got released as a result of his producing and rapping qualities. Some bars on these beats wouldn’t hurt.
Dying Breath is the collaboration effort between producer K15 and rapper DistantStarr. The gloomy but also uplifting beats from K15 lay the perfect ground for the soul searching raps.

It’s pretty cool that the acapella’s and the instrumentals are included with this release. They might want you to create some beats or raps of your own and come up with your own take of the release.
