Die! is the sixth album by the rapper Necro.[2] Die! was initially alluded to on Necro's MySpace profile as a "brand new solo album coming September 2009"; however, on August 13, the page's header was updated with an announcement of the album's title and its release date, which was put back to May 2010.[3] Die! was Necro's first album since Death Rap in 2007 and was released by Psycho+Logical-Records. The album's release date was finalised when the album cover was released on March 25, 2010.

There are no featured guests on the album because, as Necro wrote on his website forums, "I decided I wanna make the entire album no collabos. It will be Necro beats and Necro lyrics from start to finish."[citation needed]

On July 17, 2010, Necro revealed on website's forum that he was being sued by Ani DiFranco for sampling her song "Used to You" for the track "The Asshole Anthem". iTunes and Amazon subsequently removed the album from their stores, and Necro confirmed he was in the process of re-releasing the album without this track included.[4]
