Jay-Z's "The Blueprint 3," which comes out tomorrow, leaked earlier this week and was pretty disappointing, despite months of hype. There are about five good songs on the album - the singles "Death of Auto-Tune" and "Run This Town" (which isn't that hot, but is when compared to the rest of the tracks), closer "Young Forever" and some other stuff - but the one that's the catchiest and most stuck in my head is "Empire State of Mind," which features Alicia Keys.
And ... lo and behold ... after being used in MTV's VMA promos, it's now going to be performed that night. Baller! I was about to skip this shit and now I should probably tune in, at least for these four minutes or so. Oh, and for the extended "New Moon" trailer. I. Die.
