Jay-Z ft. Santogold - Brooklyn (Go Hard)

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Jay Z
Featuring:
Producer:
Kanye West
Album:
Notorious Soundtrack/Blueprint 3

On January 16, Fox Searchlight Pictures will release Notorious, the much-anticipated biopic of the late Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.  Three days prior to its nationwide opening, an official motion picture soundtrack will be released (courtesy of Biggie’s label, Bad Boy Records), which will feature the new Jay-Z and Santogold-helmed single, Brooklyn (Go Hard).  The record, reportedly also set to be included on Jigga’s forthcoming Blueprint 3 album, finds both Brooklynites explaining what their city has meant to their careers and why nowhere else in the world could compare.  Produced by Kanye West, Brooklyn (Go Hard) is assisted by a sample from Santogold’s Shove It and an epically hollow bassline.  So, does Hova do his close friend and birthplace justice?
