With Hood Billionaire out and fellow MMG member Wale next up (The Album About Nothing drops March 31st; peep “MMG Under God” here) Rozay links up with Jay Z for the “Movin’ Bass” visuals. Timbaland laced the track, Jigga laid down a verse, and now we’re getting the official video some months later. Interestingly enough Jay ain’t even blessing the video, as we find Rozay all alone around a NYC project housing community. Either way, Rick Ross does his thing. Check it out after the jump.
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.

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.
