Listen To Nipsey Hussle’s Posthumous Collaboration With Jay-Z “What It Feels Like”

12 February 2021

A new single between Jay-Z and the late, great Nipsey Hussle titled “What It Feel Like” has arrived.

Prior to Nipsey’s tragic passing in 2019, the Los Angeles rapper had established a connection with Jay Z based on their hustles and drive, with Hov famously purchasing over 100 physical copies of Nip’s Crenshaw mixtape which was being sold for $100 apiece in 2013.

Following Nipsey’s passing, Jigga paid tribute to the rapper on Beyonce’s “MOOD 4 EVA”, saying: “The marathon will be televised for N.I.P. / ‘Cause true kings don’t die, we multiply, peace.”

“What It Feels Like” is the first collaboration from the pair and carries a sophisticated rap feel which complements the monumental feel of the record.

The track is taken from the soundtrack to Judas & The Black Messiah; biographical drama centred on the life of American activist and Black Panther member, Fred Hampton, who’s played by the UK’s very own Daniel Kaluuya.

After you’ve listened to “What It Feels Like” above, listen to the full soundtrack below.
