Media darling Lana Del Rey undergoes a facelift to her exalted album titled single "Born To Die," by the emcee/producer duo of Kyle Rapps and Diwon.

Originally consisting of haunting string quartets and weighty percussion, Diwon's production overhaul adds a sampled violin progression coupled with a "golden era" influenced drum track.

Lyrically, Rapps takes a walk on the wild side with verses that detail both his drive towards success while confronting a past checkered by substance abuse. "Rap was criminal music before it got pretentious, son I'm not a profit, I just like to drop a gem inside a sentence."
