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.”
