Back in July, EST Gee unveiled his latest body of work Bigger Than Life Or Death, a 15-song effort with additional appearances from Lil Baby, 42 Dugg, Future, Young Thug, Yo Gotti, Pooh Shiesty, and more. Yesterday, the Louisville emcee dropped off a new visual from said project for “In Town,” a collaboration alongside Lil Durk that sees the artists sending vivid messages to their respective enemies:
“My patience short, I can’t go back and forth, I passed out pieces of my heart in hopes you leave a corpse, this the most murders in history, left the city torched, maybe now they get the point, they wasn’t with us when I had like fifty bums on Tubman Court, they can’t question nothin’, we got our rank up now...”
Courtesy of Diesel Films, the accompanying clip for “In Town” largely acts as a tribute for EST Gee’s fallen friend Red, with footage from better times interspersed throughout. In addition to some behind the scenes and on-stage performance shots, Gee and Durk can also be seen iced up with stacks of money in a Rolls Royce, as well as in a room with other crew members playing what looks like a high stakes game of cee-lo.
Bigger Than Life Or Death follows last year’s Ion Feel Nun and I Still Don’t Feel Nun. Considered a commercial breakthrough for Gee, I Still Don’t Feel Nun saw 16 tracks with contributions from the likes of Kevin Gates, YFN Lucci, Moneybagg Yo, fellow hometown hero Jack Harlow, and Babyface Ray. In a recent sit-down on REVOLT’s “Big Facts,” Gee revealed that he deals with “survivor’s remorse” as a side-effect of his career successes:
“Some of my peoples died, you feel me? Some of my niggas went to jail — still fight cases. And it’s like, it’s getting to the good part, and some of these niggas ain’t gone see it ... And then I’m like, ‘Why I’m the one?’ It’s a lot of them, you feel me?”
