Rick Ross and DMX connect with Swizz Beatz on a new track taken from EPIX’s upcoming original series, Godfather of Harlem, starring Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker. The song is titled “Just in Case,” and you can listen to it by pressing play on the official music video above, which stars the three artists alongside Whitaker.
Whitaker portrays real-life Harlem crime boss Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson in Godfather of Harlem. The series follows Bumpy and his struggles as one of America’s most notorious African-American mobsters as he attempts to reclaim his territory following a lengthy stint in prison. You may also be familiar with the story of Johnson from Ridley Scott’s 2007 movie, American Gangster, starring Denzel Washington as Bumpy’s associate and heir, Frank Lucas.
Godfather of Harlem premieres on EPIX this Sunday, September 29.
