Dead Man's Tetris

Album: You're Dead! (2014)
  • This track features Flying Lotus spitting rhymes under his rap pseudonym of Captain Murphy. He is joined by Snoop Dogg and the pair rap about an afterlife fantasy involving the late J Dilla and Freddie Mercury over melodic bleeps and gunshot effects.
  • This is the oldest beat to make the You're Dead album. FlyLo explained in a press release that he's particularly interested in the afterlife and death's residual effects on the living. "The album isn't about the end, it's really the beginning," he said. "It's a celebration of the next experience."
