This is special. 'This Life Forever' (or 'The Black Gangster') originally featured on the Black Gangster soundtrack back in 1999 and was immediately one of the standout tracks from the album. Jay Z then included the track on one of his own projects and as tends to be the case with these kinds of records, multiple versions have been created. DJ Absolut has revealed his version as part of his #DJAbsolutMixtapeMondays series, hailing it as being even better than the original. This is Jay Z at his best and a stark reminder as to why he's one of the best to ever do it. Some may be waiting on a new album but after listening to this, it might be time to hit play on the rest of those Jigga classics.
