A new song featuring Jay-Z [pictured] and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has emerged online. Most Kingz is a previously unreleased cut from Jay-Z's latest album, Kingdom Come, but never made it as a beat was never found. Pieces of the verses ended up on the Grammy Family freestyle on Hot97 w/ Funk Flex in 2006 as well as Coldplay’s Lost (remix).
The track is included on a new 'Invasion Radio 2k10' mixtape by Green Lantern. According to 2dopeboyz, the track is the product of the same session in which Martin and Jay-Z recorded Kingdom Come’s 'Beach Chair', but because the Brooklyn rapper could never find a worthwhile accompanying beat, 'Most Kingz remained unreleased.
You can hear the track online now at the Coldplay forum and also download it via Mediafire [thanks mimixxx, rouz7, maria_shiver]
Green Lantern was quoted as saying: "“This is my version working with the acapella... I've had this since 2006 and it was supposed to be on the Presidential Invasion mixtape–that never came out. Then Hov rapped these lyrics over his HP commercial drums, and the acapella went to a few different producers in search of a beat for it. I heard a Timbaland version and I think Just Blaze and a few others had it too. But by the time they made Beach Chair, I think Jay was over trying to find a beat for Most Kingz. Then he went to Flex show and the rest is history..."
