Jay-Z – Most Kingz f. Chris Martin (prod. DJ Green Lantern)

blame it on Shake August 30, 2010

This was featured on Green Lantern’s new Invasion Radio 2k10 mixtape;; but I wanted to give it some more shine as the back story is quite interesting. The vocals for this were originally recorded for Kingdom Come, but never made the cut as a beat was never found. Pieces of the verses ended up on the Grammy Family freestyle on Hot97 w/ Funk Flex in 2006 as well as Coldplay’s Lost (rmx).

“This is my version working with the acapella…I’ve had this since 2006 and it was supposed to be on the Presidential Invasion mixtape–that never came out. Then Hov rapped these lyrics over his HP commercial drums, and the acapella went to a few different producers in search of a beat for it. I heard a Timbaland version and I think Just Blaze and a few others had it too. But by the time they made Beach Chair, I think Jay was over trying to find a beat for Most Kingz. Then he went to Flex show and the rest is history…” – Green Lantern
