"Till I Die" is a song by American rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The song premiered via YouTube, on January 5, 2015 and was released in the US on January 6, as the lead single from Machine Gun Kelly's sophomore studio album, General Admission. It contains references to artists from Cleveland, as well as to the life in the state of Ohio. The song received positive reviews, with critics praising MGK's lyrical ability and inert references to Cleveland, describing the song as a "perfect trap anthem".[1] The song was produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League when the song was recorded in 2014, and the group also handled the distribution of the song. A new version of the song is also featured on the soundtrack for NBA 2K16.

Sequel[edit]

A sequel for the single was released, known as Till I Die: Part II, and featured fellow Cleveland based hip-hop group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and rappers French Montana, Yo Gotti and Ray Cash.
