The Roc Is In The Building

Aight, I have to admit I've been feeling a little less impressed by my boy Hov lately. Kingdom Come, just wasn't that great. And the few bars he spit on Ne-Yo, Beyonce, Rihanna, and others tracks, just wasn't in the pocket. His greatness seemed to be dimming. That was until I heard the remix of "I Get Money," with the three top Hip-Hop Cash Kings (50 Cent, Diddy, and Jay-Z). Jay-Z had a bit of interesting word play going on there.

But now he's really back at it. I don't think you can question his skills.

Listen to Jay-Z's "Blue Magic" recently played on Funkmaster Flex's show. Flex was also the first one to drop the "I Get Money (Forbes 1-2-3 Remix)."

(Nah Right gets credit for posting the "Blue Magic" track first.)

I don't think we need wonder anymore whether he's back in the lab working on that new joint. Besides, The New York Times already has the scoop.

"LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19 — Jay-Z, the rap superstar and president of Def Jam Records, has quietly returned to the studio to record an album of new songs inspired by the forthcoming movie “American Gangster,” his first “concept” album and second CD in less than a year." (more)
