Watch: Lebron James Previews New JAY-Z Song Featuring Nipsey Hussle! The official track list for the much awaited Judas and the Black Messiah movie has been unveiled and the good news is, it’s star studded with Hip Hop heavy-weights. JAY-Z and Nipsey’s Hussle collaboration “What It Feels Like” is the most notable track on the soundtrack of the Shaka King-directed film.
LeBron James got his hands on the record and took to social media Tuesday night to preview the much awaited Nipsey Hussle and Jay-Z track “What It Feels Like”. In the preview we see Jay-Z mention Drake and OVO producer Noah “40” Shebib.
“Scorpion bricks, way before Aubrey’s double disc/.40 on my lap, clap, sound like 40 did the mix,” he raps.
“What It Feels Like” marks the first time Jay-Z and Nipsey have been on a track together but Hov has always expressed his support for Nip. Back in 2013, as part of his Proud to Pay campaign for his real supporters, the late rapper was selling his Crenshaw CD for $100. Apart from a free ticket to his show, the mixtape also came along with an autograph.
“I got a DM on Twitter from a respected hip-hop journalist and he was just like, ‘Hov respects the move, salute,’ Nipsey Hussle told MTV in 2013. “A little while later, I got an email that came through my team that was like, ‘Roc Nation, on behalf of Jay Z wants to buy 100 units. Who do we pay? When can we get the shipment out?’”
