Fast Life

Album: Growing Up In Public (2014)

  • Lyrics
  • This song was originally going to be a single featuring Example, but the singer/rapper's record company blocked the collaboration. Green explained to Digital Spy: "Sony didn't want Example to do any features before his own material, so he wouldn't have been able to be on it. I had to sing the chorus again like I did for the demo and it's good because it forced something out of me that I wasn't necessarily comfortable with."

    "Not something that I can't do, I'm just not used to using my voice like that. I've always sung bits and bobs on my songs but I sing on 'Fast Life'."
  • Professor Green and Example did previously work together on "Monster," a track from Green's 2010 Alive Till I'm Dead album. They also both contributed toward's Tinchy Stryder's posse single "Game Over."
