Goodbye Tomorrow emerged from Chicago earlier this year by way of 100k and Jay Z - not Hov himself but his first release, the full title of which is Jay Z: A Dissertation on the Diaspora of the Black Soul. Search online and you're find little information about this mysterious rhymer and, we presume, producer- and even less on his Windows 95 style website and Twitter profile. Of the deeply dramatic Pray To God, premiering today on i-D and featuring more Windows 95 references, Goodbye Tomorrow enlightened i-D directly with the following thought: "Only U Define U. Shake Off Their Shallow Means of Control." Read into that what you will, and then press play on this biblical offering that builds to nail-biting finale complimented perfectly by Tomorrow's emphatic flow. 

One of the best tracks we've heard so far in 2015, we look to hearing a whole lot more in the future from Goodbye Tomorrow...
