DJ Absolut has unearthed a previously unreleased version of a Jay Z classic.

Otherwise known as ‘This Life Forever’, the track was first released on a Roc-A-Fella promo tape in 1997. It later became known by the title of ‘The Black Gangster’, after the 1999 film soundtrack on which it also appeared. You can stream the unreleased version below.
