Will Mr. Carter soon give the summer some?
Since last month, word has been spreading about a brand new Jay Z record featuring Future and DJ Khaled, with production handled by Southside, Jake One, and G-Coup. Untitled, this reported track is slated to land on Khaled's Major Key album with not one, but two verses from Hov. Plus, if that wasn't enough, the song's co-star, Future, added fuel to the flame on Twitter yesterday (May 14), calling the track a return to form for Jigga.

Marcy Projects flow..ill— FUTURE/FREEBANDZ (@1future) May 14, 2016
The last time Jigga blessed the world with a new verse was... well, it was half a bar for Drizzy, who attributed it to a miscommunication. In all actuality though, the last real verse from the Roc Nation mogul came via his Tidal "Stream Of Consciousness" freestyle from a year ago. Since then, he's been pretty quiet. But if Fewtch and Khaled are to be believed, the hiatus will soon get cut short thanks to this potential banger that could once again find Mr. Carter dropping off an ounce of his signature summer sauce.
So, because it's arguably the best description for an incoming Jay Z stimulus package, especially in this year 2016, we went back and highlighted some of the best reference points that should properly set the tone for, what Future declares, as the Jay Z "Marcy Projects flow."
"Career crook, nobody rap Brooklyn like me..." The ultimate "Marcy Projects flow" indicator, this isn't just the hardest collaboration between Hov and DJ Premier, it's also the clearest embodiment of Jay strengthening his position as the "Ghetto's spokesman."
"Hard Knock Life"
The biggest street anthem from Jay's biggest selling album, "Hard Knock Life" started off his annual summer takeovers, won the hearts of middle America, and became the epitome of everything to everyone.
Drawing similarities to "Hard Knock Life," due to its interpolation of another musical sample, Jay Z's "Anything" is another gem that isn't just a street song, but a real song. Sending light to Marcy and beyond rhymes empowering lines about rising above being "a product of my environment, nothing can save me" to finally understanding the depth of a saying like "The world is yours." Keep this in mind.
"Where I'm From"
"Respect this here."
