The Run the Jewels member teased the track’s release via social media earlier this week, sharing snippets of his and Tity Boi’s politically charged verses.
Though “Black Power. White Powder.” didn’t officially drop until Thursday night, many of you first heard the collaborative track all the way back in March, when the hip-hop docuseries Rapture premiered on Netflix. Mike was shown performing an early version of the 2 Chainz-assisted single for Nas in the second episode.
“I hold [Mike] up really high when it comes to people who rap,” Nas said in Rapture. “He can out-rap most of them out there. He has the voice, the wordplay. He has that thing, and not a lot of people have it.”
Rapture: The Soundtrack is available now on Apple Music/iTunes.
In addition to “Black Power. White Powder.,” the six-track project includes records by G-Eazy (“Let Me Work”), Dave East and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie (“Gold Digger”), as well as T.I. and Rhapsody (“Care to Say About It”).
