JAY-Z and Jadakiss Have New Music on 'The Harder They Fall' Soundtrack

By Kiani Belgrave

The JAY-Z produced Western, The Harder They Fall hit select theaters last week and will be released on Netflix on November 3. Hip-hop fans are elated to hear they will be getting a brand new Hov track featuring Jadakiss accompanying the film

As heard in the movies trailer, Hov joined Kid Cudi for the track “My Guns Go Bang,” marking the duo’s first collaboration in over a decade. Hov fans are in for a treat, as this is not the only record that JAY-Z appears on the project.

In an interview with GQ, the film’s director, Jeymes Samuel, revealed The Harder They Fall soundtrack will also feature a new song from JAY-Z and Jadakiss. 

“[There are] two original [JAY-Z songs],” he said. “Wait until you hear ‘King Kong Rhythm.’ It’s the hardest joint. Let’s put it this way — I’ve reunited Jadakiss and JAY-Z.”

Samuel also revealed the track was recorded this past summer during Jadakiss’s show-stealing night in Madison Square Garden for the LOX and Dipset Verzuz battle. 

“Oh, let’s just say it was part of the insane summer,” he said. “Let’s call it serendipitous. Jay, we’ve always collaborated. We go back to collaborating with Jay Electronica. And Jay and I did The Great Gatsby together. So working with Jay is literally like breathing.”
