By Kiani Belgrave

The Harder They Fall is an upcoming all-Black Western with an all-star ensemble cast featuring Idris Elba, Jonathan Majors, Regina King, Zazie Beetz, and Lakieth Stanfield. The JAY-Z film is running in select theaters and will be hitting Netflix on November 3. 

Executive producer JAY-Z and director Jeymes Samuel hosted a star-studded premiere at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium on Wednesday night. After the film’s screening, it appears that Hov and Samuel’s older brother, Seal, treated the crowd with a performance of some of their most iconic tracks. 

With Young Guru on the 1s and 2s, Hov MC’d the event, kicking things off with some of his hit singles, then going on to perform a rare 2008 freestyle over Too $hort’s “Blow The Whistle.” 

Seal wrapped things up with an intimate performance of his classic 1994 ballad, “Kiss From A Rose.” 

Be sure to check out the Netflix premiere of the JAY-Z produced, The Harder They Fall, on November 3.
