Epic Records, EPIX, and Swizz Beatz proudly present new music from season 2 of GODFATHER OF HARLEM, starring and executive produced by Forest Whitaker and produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios, premiering Sunday, April 18th on EPIX. Once again, GRAMMY® Award-winning iconic producer, rapper, DJ, entrepreneur, and cultural connoisseur Swizz Beatz has returned as Executive Producer of the Official Soundtrack, curating a slate of hard-hitting anthems. The first two songs from the second season—“Prince Hakeem” featuring India Shawn & ADÉ and “Been To War” featuring Swizz Beatz, DMX & French Montana—have arrived today.
Orchestral choir and strings herald “Prince Hakeem” as cymbals simmer beneath a show-stopping and soulful vocal performance by LA based singer/songwriter India Shawn before DMV spitter ADÉ pulls up with knockout bars. Then, there’s “Been To War.” It projects the power of late legend DMX. DMX practically tears right through the beat with his immortal bark as French Montana locks into a smooth signature flow, providing the perfect counterpoint.
Regarding the new music, Swizz commented, “It’s an honor to be back with my GODFATHER OF HARLEM family. As sweet as the return is, the passing of my brother X weighs heavy on everyone. I hope you can feel his hunger and spirit in ‘Been To War’. X couldn’t wait for people to hear this. It’s got that same power that made us all believers. I love you, and this is dedicated to you.”
Expect new music weekly from the forthcoming GODFATHER OF HARLEM Season 2 Soundtrack.
