As Stereogum points out, it’s the irony of irony to have Kanye West produce the first track off Jigga’s Blueprint 3 album about the death of auto-tune, but “having T-Pain onstage while you publicly debut the song is some next-level shit” at the Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert at Giant’s Stadium.
Still, meta-irony aside, Jay’s dropped another great track from what will probably be the album event of the year. Yes, albums are now similar to President’s Day car sales.
The Blueprint 3 is out 9/11/09, eight years to the day after the release of the original Blueprint, via Jay’s Roc Nation with distribution by Atlantic. More info at Billboard.
