In a new interview with DJ Whoo Kid, producer/Atlanta royalty Southside said he and DJ Khaled have a song with their steady collaborator Future on the way. Also on the track? Jay Z, the man people desperately need a real verse from after his bait-and-switch on Drake's new song "Pop Style." (It's billed as "featuring The Throne," but Jay raps two tiny lines before handing the mic to Kanye West.)
In 2014, Future told an interviewer, "I wanna work with Jay Z, somehow, some way. ... Even being in the studio and just going over ideas and shit, I believe we'd come up with something crazy."
Southside, who produced Watch the Throne's "Illest Motherfucker Alive," said he sampled Jake One and G-Coup on the new Hov/Future single. "That shit's crazy," he teased. Just like Future predicted!
Boosting the story is the fact that Khaled just announced his new deal with Epic Records, which will release his next album, now titled Major Key. He wrote on Instagram:
"Fan luv you've been asking me to bless you with new music. The wait is over!!! My 9th album 'Major Key' is the best album of my career and I do it all for you!!! Stay tuned for new singles alert!!! New artist alert!!!! I'm looking for you!!! It's We The Best Music/Epic. The next chapter of success has begun. The 'machine' is the most powerful it's ever been!
