Hov, Kiss and La Maquina on the same track?! Oh yeah, the rap gawds are blessing us tonight.

Throughout their extensive careers, Jay-Z and Jadakiss have had their share of ups and downs. From all out crew beefs to legendary posse cuts, the two New York emcees now share deals together with The LOX rocking under the Roc Nation umbrella.

Now, with Conway the Machine in the mix, the trio (along with rising UK rapper BlackRoad Gee) have joined forces on a new song called “King Kong Riddim” that will live on the soundtrack to the upcoming Netflix movie, The Harder They Fall, which Hov co-produced.

According to the film’s director, Jeymes Samuel, the song was recorded this past summer – sometime around The LOX and Dipset’s VERZUZ battle at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. “King Kong Riddim” is one of two new original Jay-Z songs, the other being a reunion with Kid Cudi called “Guns Go Bang.”

Check out both, as well as the entire soundtrack, below. And be on the lookout for The Harder They Fall, which hits Netflix on November 3rd (this writer’s birthday).
