“That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar/Somebody should’ve told him I’m a fuckin’ rockstar/Today is gonna be the day that I’m gonna throw it back to you.”
I had my socks blown off this morning.
I heard the new Jay-Z single.
Jay-Z is fresh again.
And this is coming from a huge Jay-Z fan who’s been disappointed of late (3 years!!!!) from his recent work.
Jockin’ Jay-Z is the first joint from Blueprint 3, the forthcoming album from Jay-Z. Fresh from a summer of headlining major shows around the world, including the Glastonbury Festival in the UK for which he was ridiculed by Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Hov is back in the studio finishing his next booklet of flow.
Unlike the hodge-podge confection of production variety that was The Black Album and Kingdom Come, this album is produced in majority by Kanye West (with additional support from Timbaland). What results is a combo of producer/MC that synergistically elevates the talents of each party, similar to Dre/Snoop and the like.
This track is the first glimpse into the product of that collaboration. Think one part Reasonable Doubt, one part 99 Problems, one part Wishing on a Star, and one part classic Kanye synth.
If you can sit and listen to this song without succumbing your urge to move, shake, or bob, you deserve a family sized bag of Baked Lay’s because let’s face it, I don’t see how it can be done.
So here’s one to take you through the last weeks of summer. Throw this on in your car, at your prefunk, or on your iPod and enjoy Seattle sun.
Right now, yes, I’m jockin’ Jay-Z.http://www.zshare.net/audio/17509084afa87165
