Early Tuesday morning, the tracklist to the soundtrack for the highly-anticipated film Judas And The Black Messiah was made public. Of its 22 tracks, one undeniable highlight came with Jay-Z and Nipsey Hussle’s “What It Feels Like” collaboration. It was the first and sadly the last track the duo performed together, and it arrives as we approach the two-year mark of Nipsey’s death. A snippet, though, has already been made available in a new clip dropped on social media.
