The mysterious Jay Electronica has shared a new track entitled “Road to Perdition.” The song features a sample of Jay-Z’s “Success” from his 2007 album American Gangster. No word as to whether or not this track will appear on a new Jay Electronica project, which has been in limbo since forever ago. This is the first new song Jay Electronica has shared since last year’s “Better in Tune With the Infinite.” He is also starring in the film Into the Light which is scheduled to be released this year. Listen to “Road to Perdition” after the jump.

Migos are set to drop their debut album YRN later this year but in the meantime the trio of Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset are prepping their successors with Migo Lingo. Contrary to what you may have read online this isn’t exactly a Migos mixtape per se, especially given its misleading title. In fact, Migos only appear on three tracks here. The rest of the mixtape serves as an introduction to fellow Atlanta rappers YRN Lingo, Mango, Domingo, and Migo Bands. Featured on Migo Lingo are frequent Migos collaborators Skippa Da Flippa, Johnny Cinco, and Rich the Kid. You may stream and download the mixtape after the jump. Again: do not go into this thinking it’s a Migos project otherwise you will surely be disappointed.
