The album drops on Sept. 11, but you can listen to the tracks before it comes out!
JESS3’s got it on his blog.
Normally, I’m not a huge fan of Jay-Z or r&b/rap in general, but I actually like this. I think the song’s intro is the most important real estate of the song, and he sold me.
But the same time, I’m sick of the constant “I am dripping with hos and money” message.
Regardless, my faves:
“D.O.A” (Death of Autotune)
“Run this Town” (which would be awesome in my newsroom sitcom promos, just sayin’)
“Empire State of Mind”
“On to the Next One” (it sounds kinda annoying at first and reminds me of some M.I.A. track, but it grows on you)
“Already Home” (love the strings on this track)
