Ty Dolla $ign's first single off his debut album Free TC, "Stand For," successfully merged his ratchet r'n'b sound with a powerful message to stand up for what you believe in. The song is produced by Diplo and DJ Dahi, and the former producer decided to share an alternate version of the track on his Soundcloud. You can hear some of the elements that made the final track here, and perhaps distinguish the contributions DJ Dahi made. The production is a bit more stripped down, with less drums at play. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.

Said I stand for my niggas doin' life
Free my niggas right right now
And I stand for my bitches doin' right
Up early cookin' breakfast, comin' home at night
Stand for my niggas on the bottom
Never went to college but they're full of street knowledge, hell yeah
