Jay-Z Set To Release “Open Letter” On Vinyl


One of the things people wanted to know after finally getting their hands on the Holy Grail was, what happened to “Open Letter,” the song Jigga unexpectedly dropped back in April with Timbaland and Swizz Beatz? It will be resurrected on vinyl in the form of an “open letter” according to Hov. During his recent Twitter appearance, Jigga was asked why the controversial track was missing from the final edition of Magna Carta Holy Grail. To which Jay returned, “Vinyl only, handled by Jack White.”

White, a musician and producer, also owns a record store that works in producing specialized vinyl. The record will reportedly be in the form of a playable letter. “It’s in a letter that—you can play the letter. It’s amazing,” Jay confirmed with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez, yesterday. “You open the letter, and you can actually play the card, like a vinyl.”

White’s Third Man Records also produced gold and platinum vinyl editions of the Hov executive produced, The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
