Back in April, we got word that JAY Z and Future recorded a song together when 808 Mafia producer Southside let it slip during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid.
“I got the new single with Future and Jay Z, too. With Khaled,” he said. “That shit’s crazy.” He said the song was co-produced with DopeHouse favorite Jake One and G-Koop.
The following month, Future confirmed the collaboration, saying the “new Jay Z record gone f*ck the summer up” with Jigga going “very very very Krazy” with the vintage Marcy Projects flow—which, based off Hov’s verse on Pusha T’s “Drug Dealers Anonymous, isn’t hard to believe. Need more assurance? The track is called “I Got The Keys!”
Currently pushing “For Free” with Drake, DJ Khaled is ready to unleash the next anthem from his forthcoming album, Major Key. And today (6/7), he managed to get Future and JAY Z (and Pusha T, Yo Gotti, Rick Ross, Swizz Beatz, 2 Chainz, A$AP Ferg, T.I., Fabolous, Bryson Tiller, and more) together in New York to shoot the music video.
There was a strict “no social media” rule in place, but Khaled, Lenny S. and a few others in attendance were kind enough to share a few shots.
Check em out below and be on the lookout for “I Got The Keys”—most likely debuting on Khaled’s Beats 1 show this Friday.
Yesterday we pulled off something pretty epic. TRUST ME, it ain’t easy especially getting one of these guys in front of the camera. We have a great song that we needed a strong, compelling visual for. We called a lot of friends to help create a memorable and powerful piece of art. They showed up.. And again, we pulled it off. These 3 guys made magic. We respectfully asked for no social media posts. There were a lot of photographers, videographers, camera phones and people with itchy trigger fingers. Lol. And some nasty posts got out. Its unfortunate that people don’t let artist have their moment. All G. My guys wanted me to let a Kodaklens image out. I honestly was busy tryin to manage the video but I still captured a shot or two. So… Here you go. Just one portrait of many of what you can expect to see. So… Share it, strip it, rip it, repost it or whatever you need to. Lol. I left the Kodaklens tag off as well. Enjoy. #FUTURE #JAYZ #DJKHALED #IGOTTHEKEYS
