This is our story...

Last week, Nerdist reported on a company that will press your cremated ashes into vinyl records with twelve minutes of playing time per side. After reading it and with Valentine’s Day looming on the horizon, we were naturally thinking about dying alone and wondering what music our favorite artists would want to be pressed into, so we asked! From Mozart to Migos, enjoy this bizarre and poignant list of songs so meaningful they made the cut for each of these incredibly talented individuals’ final recording.

Kill the Noise
honestly, depends! if i died soon, i would probably have them press them in a special copy of “all in my head” perhaps.

now that i KNOW you can get your ashes put into a vinyl, i’d probably make something for it. Hopefully there’s a song or an album i live long enough to write for that!

I’m an ’80s baby, and the ’90s was so influential and important for me. It’s when my family moved from Liberia to the U.S. That 20-year span produced so many amazing and influential tracks, especially that era of hiphop and house! I’ve always loved this song, and its message.”
