I’m excited. Too bad Timbo’s not doing any production though. Just in case you forgot what we’re looking forward to: Jockin’ Jay-Z (live at MSG, from Kanye’s last US date on the Glow in the Dark Tour, as previously posted).

Also, Maino slapped Yung Berg? One inconsequential rapper slapped another one? Although I have to admit, I like all of their singles more than I should.

At Kanye West’s Glow In The Dark Tour show at Madison Square Garden last Wednesday, Jay-Z came onstage, and spit some new tracks: this little number right here, and a song called “Ain’t I”. These are potential tracks for The Blueprint 3.

There isn’t much to go on besides rumors, but Timbaland is slated to produce the majority of the album (EDIT: Several sources have brought to my attention that this is no longer the case; No ID and Kanye West will do some too).

There are also talks of a collaborative record between the two. If you have talked to me in the last two weeks, I have mentioned this and quoted Timbo as saying that it would be “like ten Big Pimpin’s”. Let me remind you how incredible this song is:

Seriously, holy shit. This is the apex of party rap, rivaled by few and equaled by none. Imagine an entire album of it. You’d run out of Cristal to pour on the legions of video vixens who follow you around everywhere. So let’s cross our fingers and hope that it happens. Blueprint 3 could potentially come out as early as this December, which means the other album can’t be too far behind…

There’s a considerable list of hip hop related news and tracks that I’m excited about today, so rather than giving each the post it probably deserves or I would give it on a slow day, I’m just going to summarize:

Jay-Z has already mentioned that he’s ready to get back in the studio, and it might be even more interesting given the fact that Timbaland claims that he will be producing the whole next effort. Obviously, Jay can get pretty much anyone to produce for him, but Timbaland claims that they want this album to have “10” “Big Pimpin'”s (their previous collaboration). We’ll see. Timbaland was pretty hot two years ago, but his style has sort of stagnated since then. I’m dubious, especially considering Jay’s record of following good albums with disappointing ones. I mean, I thought American Gangster was pretty good.

Flava Flav’s got a kid! Does this mean that there won’t be a Flavor of Love 3? What will I watch at the gym now? I’m probably going to gain weight because of this.
