Rick Ross and Kanye West's new collaboration, "Live Fast, Die Young" has leaked online and features the Def Jam labelmates delivering hard-hitting verses.
The track originally leaked as a preview before fully being released online yesterday (July 1).
Kanye West continues his furious comeback, this time with a guest turn on Rick Ross' "Live Fast," a track from the Miami rapper's upcoming Teflon Don album. West delivers a super-boastful verse, matching the tone and aggression he rapped with on his most recent number, "Power." A snippet of the track was first made available on Thursday (July 1) -- before the entire song leaked later in the day -- through a preview of Ross-go-to-director Spiff TV's Teflon Don: The Bossumentary.

Following Ross' verse, West gives his 16 bars speaking on his fast life.
"To all my young ladies to Driving Miss Daisy's," West raps, "Driving me crazy, rock the beat baby/I'm about to 'err!', see, heat up the pavement/I don't give an 'err!', baby, he crazy/I'm back by unpopular demand/Least you still poppin' in Japan/Shoppin' in Milan, hopping out the van/Screams from the fans, 'Yeezy, we always knew you'd be on top again!'" ("Live Fast, Die Young")
In a new documentary, West shares his admiration for Ross.
"I just remember Ross had so many verses," West said. "When I started hearing the records come out, I always felt a connection, 'cause I felt like we came from similar places and we paid so many dues. We all had ups and downs in our lives and sh--. And now, this is the highest caliber you can get to, you know what it is. And it didn't happen overnight, it's 10, 15, 20 years in the making." (Teflon Don: The Bossumentary)
