Unreleased Jay-Z Song Leaks, Fuels Blueprint 3 Rumors

On Wednesday night (January 30) a previously unheard, Timbaland produced Jay-Z song called “Ain’t I” leaked onto the internet and immediately fueled rumors that the former Def Jam president was preparing a third installment in his Blueprint series of albums. The leaked version of the track includes vocal drops from DJ Clue in which he announces that it is “off that Blueprint 3.” The song appears on Clue’s new mixtape, Desert Storm Radio 8: I Am Legend. But when MTV News reached out to a rep for Jay, they were informed that the track is actually old but never made it onto an album. The rep went on to say that Jay has not indicated that he would be releasing any new album in the near future. Nonetheless, some of the lyrical content of “Ain’t I” seems related to recent disparaging remarks made by former Roc-A-Fella artists such as Peedi Peedi and Beanie Sigel. Over a signature Timbo beat Hov raps, “I took a pay cut to become a exec/So the next motherfucker can earn his pay check/And even though these niggas talk greasy ‘bout me/Ask these niggas how they gonna eat without me.”

    I hope this some tru shit. Because I think tha original Blueprint is Hov best work to date. N I feel dat Gift & Tha Curse is his most incomplete work. If this is tha truth he needs to let Kanye, Timbaland, Just Blaze, and DJ Toomp handle tha boardwork but let Kanye handle tha bulk of tha production. That would be a classic album.

    I GOT A FEW THINGS TO SAY…

    1ST OF ALL…EVEN THOUGH JAY’S MONEY LEVEL IS OUT OF THIS WORLD, WHY WOULD HE FEEL THE NEED TO SHIT ON THE ARTIST WHO’S AFFILIATION HELPED HIM BECOME THE MAN HE IS NOW?

    (REMEMBER: with the help if beanie, freeway, the young gunz and o and sparks he still got EITHERED by NAS)F**K IT!, THE WHOLD LABEL WAS GOIN AT NAS INCLUDING THE DIPS

    NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU YOU HELPING NIGGAS OUT BY LEAVING THEM IN THE COLD?…WHILE YOU KISS SOME WHITE EXECUTIVE’S ASS FOR A THE CHECK YOU REALLY WANT?

    JAY SAID IT HIMSELF ” WHEN MAN SHOWS YOU WHO HE IS BELIEVE HIM”..SO I GUESS JAY Z IS A SNAKE ..SINCE THE BREAK UP WITH DAME THAT’S ALL HE HAS SHOWN US HE IS.

    PARDON THE LONG POST…BUT F**K IT.. IM FROM THE BRONX…1000

    • DA BOSS

      FIRST OF ALL. FUCK NIGGAS. EVERYONE IS A KILLA BUT THE DEATHS DON’T ADD UP. NIGGA’S ACT LIKE THERE YOUR FRIENDS ONE MINUTE BUT WHEN A NIGGA COMES UP EVERYONE WANT TO SHIT ON HIM FOR BEING A MAN INSTEAD OF A FUCKING GANSTA. 99.9% OF YOU NIGGA’S AIN’T GANSTA ANYWAYS.

    • http://www.theclassiks.blogspot.com H. IMPERIAL

      I FEEL U HE SHITTED ON ALL THEM NIGGAZ….HE COULD OF JUST LET DAME HAVE THE NAME IF HE WAS GONNA JUST TRASH IT….

    • Real Hip-Hop

      i agree somewhat but he’s not shitting on his artists. They’re the one shitting on him. If it wasnt for him they wouldnt be in the limelight or even have half of the money they have now. Everbody knows damn well that if Beanie, Freeway, Young Gunz, O & Sparks, etc wasnt affiliated with Jay they wouldnt have been as big. He helped them make a name for themselves. Now it’s time for them to be their own man. Jay aint gonna hold their hands forever. Perfect example is Kanye he did his last 2 albums without the help of Jay. Everybody talking about Jay being stingy and not promoting them but i dont hear Jeezy, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, Kanye, Rihanna, Luda,etc complaining. Why cause after they made a name for themselves they took control of their career and did what they had to keep themselves their.

    blueprint 3 should come out b4 he gets any older 2 make extra money. not that he needs any, but im jus saying. american ganster album was a disappointment 4 me, so i hope it makes up 4 it

  • Three4

    This song was supposed to be on Timbaland´s Shock Value but it didn´t make it to the album because Jay never finished the lyrics to the song…

  • mike b

    hes probably talking about meth and ll an shit

  • Kaya

    @ Deniro….u ain’t speaking NOTHING but the TRUTH!…this nigga will affiliate himself with whoever is hot to stay relevant and then shit on them….i wouldn’t be surprised if he told Clue to put this out there…that nigga is not going to be satisfied until he can knock GOD off…he’s already jacked his swag!

  • UNC rep

    American Gangster was a disappointment homie that must be the coke talking (not a soft drink ethier) because you need to go listen to American Gangster some more and try to figure out what he’s talking about that album is the shit not if your not a jay fan everything he does is not good. I’ll explain some of his lyrics if you need some help.

  • what ever fag boy

  • THEGOD

    If this is tha truth he needs to let Kanye, Timbaland, Just Blaze, and DJ Toomp handle tha boardwork…

  • DirtDoggy

    The boy rocks thick hand knitted scarves triple wrapped around his neck nice and snug on a regular basis lately, that’s all I need to know. Seriously who the fuck where’s scarves like that besides te gahys ? how could anyone think that’s fresh ? even when we were 10 year old kids when your moms tries to wrap that retarded looking scarve around you, and your like ” hell naw mom, the kids will laugh at me ” remember that shit ? it still aplies to today.

    • Country Boy

      What does rocking a scarf have to do with lyrical ability? If what you wear has anything to do with lyrical ability, then Lil Wayne is one of the wackest niggas of all time because he wear them tight ass, yeast-infection causing skinny jeans.

    • Real Hip Hop

      Well if that’s the case half of the rap world is gay then cause everbody is doing it. You got Jeezy, Weezy, Kanye, just to name a few and jeezy and weezy suppose to be gangsta. so since they wear scarfs now they’re gay?

    SAY WHAT?! YOU MUST BE FUCKING 16 OR SOMETHING BECAUSE OTHEWISE YOU WOULD KNOW THAT’S HOW MOTHERFUCKERS WITH REAL MONEY DO IT. THE TRUE, REAL MOTHERFUCKERS OF TODAY AND YESTERDAY DRESSED LIKE GENTLEMAN BUT HANDLED THEIR BUSINESS HARDER THAN ANY FAKE ASS LIL’ WAYNE, JIM JONES, OR WHOEVER TYPE THUG. CHECK JAY’S BANKROLL AND CHECK THE ROLLS OF YOUR NIGGAS THAT DRESS LIKE SOME WANNABE’S/FOLLOWERS. NOW WHO’S THE TRUE FUCKING G. YOUNG BET/MTV MOTHERFUCKER. LEAVE YOUR BLOCK AND EDUCATE YOUR DAMN SELF.

  • POINTGOD KG14

    no one can deny jay the crown bitches…

  • http://xxlmag.com Justice

    Man. FU%K all yall corny ass dudes. Jay gave all of them rappers a chance and put out records on all of them, Beans, Freeway, Youngs Guns, Camron – (his only platinum album was on ROC!!) Even Jim Jones. Check out all Jim’s first freestyles. All on Hov’s instrumentals and once DipSet got on top they started talking shi*T!!! And The rest of the Roc and just stopped spitting raw songs like they used too. Freeway turned wack ever since Cassidy fried his ass in that battle. Beans can’t stay out of jail or handle his own crew. (State Property) Chris from Young gunz, trying to be JAY-Z. And Cam…(do i really need to mention he snaked out. He was hot and just lost it all with that stop snitching interview, last summer. Let Jay LIVE!!!!! He shouldn’t have to hold them grown mens hands!!! Grow up baby boy!! GROW UP!! I don’t hear Kanye complaining… And one to grow on. I love Dame Dash. He is the ultimate hustler!!! and when the ROC split up. Dame tried to get those guys to sign with him to his Dame Dash Music Group and they all dissed Dame! and wouldn’t sign with him!! Hell, Dame even went to pick Beans up from jail when HE GOT OUT!!! So chew on that!!!! They killed the ROC…not JAY

    • loc718

      yo justice u spoke the fuccin truth niggaz 4get obody would sign HOV so he maned up and made his own lane JAY gave them the boooth put just like in the hood u got 2 put your own work in like that nigga KANYE did JAY-Z is the greatest and them niggaz was fortunate 2 bke around him so they should of made that hot music like thay used e cause only bleek can afford 2 out out garbage (and he has) and still be good HOV 4 LIFE the greatest of all-time

  • Khayan from the bronx

    ITS ALWAYS A FRESH BREATH OF AIR WHEN THE BIG HOMMIE DROPS ANYTHING. AMERICAN GANSTER WAS A HOT ASS ALBUM. THE BLUEPRINT 3 WOULD BE A BLESSING. ESPECIALLY WITH THE CURRENT STATE OF HIP HOP. AND ALL YA NIGGAS HAVE TO STOP HATING. JAY Z IS THE MICHAEL JORDAN OF THIS GAME WE LOVE. HOW U GOING TO HATE ON GREATNESS.

  • latino heat

    we need that BP3 jay! like everyone else said only kanye, just blaze, and that’s it. bink only did 1 song on the 1st one. and timbaland had the wackest song if ya’ll go back and listen to it. i can’t stand timbaland’s overrated ass. please stick to pop it’s better suited to your wack ass sound. i could be wrong but didn’t tim’ do a lot of those wack ass filer songs that fucked up BP2? i gotta go back and check, there was another classic album hiding under all those filler tracks. Meet the Parents, probly the most slept on jay track ever.

  • G

    BP3, if done right, would be fire…and it be good to see Just and Kanye get back to basics with it since their best work is off BP1(lets get the soul samples back). And Timbo beat was tight, the worst beat title goes to Jigga My Nigga by Trackmasters(Poke and Tone) terrible song…Hola Hovito was an original Timbo beat that was fire and Hova kills it. You dont know hip-hop if you think Timbos trash, dude given Jigga his best songs (other than them misses on BP3)

    And Bink did 3 tracks not one
