Isaiah Rashad has dropped “200/Warning,” an outtake from his upcoming album The House is Burning.
As its title suggests, the song is split into two and features a distinct beat switch. Its first half, “200,” was produced by Nabeyin, Amaire Johnson, Rory Behr, and Almatic, while the second half, “Warning,” was produced by Kenny Beats.
“Smoking heavy as I can, I hope I’m higher than self / I’m rollin’ with that bitch in case I’m dyin’ tomorrow / I know these n****s tryna burn me out when I’m on / I know these n****as tryna burn me out, Lord,” Zay raps over understated guitar samples and trap drums on the song’s gripping hook.
The rapper released the track after it leaked online last week. Speaking to his fans on Twitter, Zay asked what their preferred listening platform was. “Yall leaked it. Soundcloud/YouTube??????”
On June 1, he officially shared the track on Top Dawg Entertainment’s YouTube channel. “Everyone go thank Nacho. Not on the album,” he tweeted.
Zay’s most recent release was “Lay Wit Ya,” which featured Memphis crunk rapper Duke Deuce. It is the first single from his upcoming album The House is Burning. Last year, the rapper also collaborated with Kaash Paige for “Problems” and dropped “Why Worry,” his first solo track in four years.
