As if the world needed another Brooklyn anthem, here comes Jay-Z representing hard for his borough on "Brooklyn (Go Hard)." Featuring Santogold's well-recognized straining voice sampled well by producer Kanye West, this track will likely fare much better amongst the hipster crowd as opposed to the hug-the-block crowd that Jay-Z's fanbase was originally built upon. While I will always love Jigga, Santogold honestly hasn't impressed me since she debuted last year. Luckily, Jay's lyrics lend more griminess to a track that has echoes of futurism and will be on the upcoming Notorious soundtrack.
