“Gunfiyah” is Dre’s first solo track since his alleged final album, 2015’s Compton. It sounds like a throwaway from those recording sessions as the production features lush horns and double-time flow. The lyrics find the West Coast titan rapping about his rise to fame. “I been rollin’ up haze in the studio for days just to work for a wage/ Now I’m on, fuckin’ paid in this mothafucka/ Who got a hit just like this? And got heart and rich like this?/ Never failed, 20 years and he still got grip like this.”
