Rapidly rising Orlando rapper Kuttem Reese just dropped an incendiary new single and video entitled “Dead Roses” via Republic Records/448 Music Group/CKN Entertainment.

The track hinges on an instantly recognizable sample of “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry—only  revamped and revitalized with sizzling hi-hats and charged-up 808s. Kuttem Reese tears through this soul-trap soundscape with razor-sharp flows and a captivating cadence in the face of loss and tragedy. He opens up on a grippingly elegiac refrain, “His head cold, now he dead, he got dead roses.” In the cinematic music video, Reese climbs to the peak of an icy mountain top, sprinkling rose petals honoring his fallen loved ones.
