Texas emcee Ike grabs Melát, King Mez and Tank Washington for “Last Days,” as they ponder what their final day on Earth would be like.
All involved believe some sort of violence or the government will be a part of their death, but they won’t go down without a fight. “Whichever way I go, I won’t be on my knees. Know that if I’m armed, I’mma squeeze,” spits Ike followed by similar sentiments from Mez and Tank. The boom-bap production from Haris Qureshi adds a layer emotion with its descending bass line and ascending guitar samples.
