It Was All a Dream

September 13, 2009

Hey guys, I just wanted to update you where and what I am up to lately. Though I have not been on this site in the past week, I have not stopped thinking about blogging on it. However, I have been spending a lot of my time blogging for 5StarHipHop.Com and that has been taking a lot of time, but I am not done here. I am just in need of a break so I can re-adjust my time and focus on both sites. Also, I am working more closely with outside companies, which happened to take me to a Common x The Roots show last night on a press pass. My dreams are coming alive and I am just overly busy. Hope you can understand folks.

Check out my blogs on 5StarHipHop.com and be sure to follow me on there, along with checking back here. Love you guys for real and I appreciate all the support you continually give.

Be back soon.

Jay-Z Speaks on his Favorite Album

September 7, 2009

In the interview below, Jay-Z talks with Rhapsody about one his favorite albums of all time, Michael Jackson’s off the Wall. Hov explains that the album is one of his favorites because it transcends time and genres, allowing people of all races, cultures and ages to enjoy it. Personally, I wouldn’t have guessed it would be Off the Wall, but I will agree with Hov that it is one of the best albums ever, easily in my top ten.

Also, after the break, Jay talks with the Daily Noise about Blueprint 3about the progression of hisBlueprint albums, D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune) and more.

Jay-Z’s “Blueprint 3” Has Been Bumped to the 8th

September 7, 2009

And just in case you missed the news, it seems as if Jay-Z’s upcoming album, Blueprint 3, has been pushed up on its release date, from the 11th to tomorrow, the 8th. My guess it has a lot to do with the album leaking, but that has not been confirmed as of yet. Nonetheless, do not go out this Friday looking to be one of the first to buy a copy because it comes out tomorrow.

The change in release date is most likely directly related to the early leak of Jay-Z’s album which leaked in its entirety last week, a full two weeks before the album was set to grace shelves.  The September 11th date was an important date to the RocNation founder, Jay-Z; the very first “Blueprint” release was released September 11th, 2001,a date shared with the September 11th attacks on the Twin Towers plagued the country.

Yesterday, I put up the 30 second snippet version to Drake’s latest joint, Fear, produced by DJ Khalil, and today, I am giving you all the full, CDQ version of the song. Off of his So Far Gone EP that will hit stores on the 15th, this track will lead us into his upcoming, debut album, Thank Me Later. Personally, I have hear Drake rap harder and better, but this track is worth the download and listen. Link below, so enjoy.

Jay-Z’s BP3 Tour Dates

September 5, 2009

Like I have said before, if you cannot make it to Jay-Z’s upcoming September 11th, “Answer the Call” show at Madison Square Garden, then you may still be in luck. As expected, Jay will be making some tour stops in accordance to his upcoming Blueprint 3 album, which will make his fans quite happy. Looks like I will make heading to the November 12th show a priority.

September 5, 2009

Wale announced that after reaching 80,00 followers on Twitter, he would release a new song. Though the track will not be featured on his upcoming Attention Deficit it is a track worth listening to. Wale stated that it was not good enough to be featured on his upcoming album, which to me, says that Attention Deficit will be amazing. Link for Ice & Rain, produced by Cool & Dre, is below.
