Currently, the second season of the Epix’s “Godfather of Harlem” was in full effect earlier this year, but then took a midseason hiatus. The show is officially back this Sunday (Aug 8), and while fans wait for the drama to return, they can enjoy the star-studded official soundtrack that accompanies season 2. A stand-out cut “Please Forgive Me” sees the fusion of Hip Hop OG Swizz Beatz and Bay Area’s very own Larry June. On the track, Swizz opens up the song by coming in softly over some guitar chords with earnest lyrics:
Please forgive me, Lord forgive me, for all my sins/ Please forgive me, Lord forgive me for all my sins, what a man gotta do, what a man gotta do?/
Following the release of “Prince Hakeem” with ADÉ and India Shawn, “Been To War” with DMX, French Montana, and Swizz Beatz, and “Forgot About the Streets” with Melvoni, Badda TD, and Brillo, a more recent cut was “No Bark When I Bite,” a collaboration between Rick Ross and the Natalia Kills-led band Cruel Youth. The full soundtrack includes appearances from names like Buddy (who was also on the season 1 soundtrack), DDG, and more.
Back in June, Larry June unleashed his Orange Print project and has been providing smooth visuals for his fans to vibe to at a steady pace ever since. First up was “Still Cookin,” then cuts like “6am In Sausalito” and “Intercepted” featuring Money Man. Since its release, the Orange Print already surpassed 25M streams and cracked the Billboard Top 200 for the first time in his career. At the tail end of 2020, Larry June slid in one last project Numbers after a busy and successful year. Named after one of his most popular ad-libs, the Numbers project includes features from Ro James, Dej Loaf, Jay Worthy, Monroe Flow, and more.
