JAY-Z, Jadakiss and Conway The Machine are linking up for a new collab entitled “King Kong Riddim” featuring Backroad Gee. The highly-anticipated cut is set to appear on the upcoming Netflix Western The Harder They Fall starring Jonathan Majors and Idris Elba.

Speaking to GQ, director Jeymes Samuel shared that the track was recorded during “the insane summer” that saw Jadakiss and The LOX battle it out with Dipset during VERZUZ. “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,” he shared.

The Harder They Fall follows Majors as Nat Love, an outlaw who seeks revenge on Elba’s Rufus Buck:

“When outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is being released from prison he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hand men — hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler)—and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose. Directed by Jeymes Samuel, written by Samuel and Boaz Yakin, produced by Shawn Carter, James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender and Jeymes Samuel, and featuring a red hot soundtrack and a stunning all-star cast, including Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, LaKeith Stanfield, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., Deon Cole with Regina King and Idris Elba revenge has never been served colder.”

Take a look at the teaser below. JAY-Z, Jadakiss and Conway The Machine’s “King Kong Riddim” drops October 29, while The Harder They Fall premieres on Netflix on November 3.
