The Blueprint 3 Springs a Leak


Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 seems to be arriving a little ahead of schedule: the Kanye-featuring/Kanye-produced “Hate,” “Thank You” (also produced by Kanye), and “A Star Is Born,” featuring J. Cole, have all burst out onto the internet in the last few hours, and there are intimations of more to come in the very near future–for instance, if you were to Google “Empire State of Mind” right now, well, we wouldn’t be responsible for what you’d find. Timbaland, the guy who leaked the previous three Jay songs, is probably sighing in relief right now. The rest of Sean Carter’s camp is surely doing the exact opposite.
