Another Jay-Z Banger Comin?

Jay-Z image Don't call it a comeback, because Jay's already done that. But this could be considered a sequel. There's rumors all over the internet now that a leaked track by Jay-Z is an indication Jigga will be doing Blueprint 3 for his next album.

According to, the internet was abuzz after an older track produced by Timbaland called "Ain't I" was leaked out (hear it on YouTube). Yelling over the track is DJ Clue, who shouts out Blueprint 3 several times. This gives many fans reason for belief there will be a trilogy of Blueprint CD's now from Sir Hovah.

MTV points out that the lyrics on "Aint I" seem to highlight recent Jay-Z times:
Still, with lyrics on "Ain't I" that relate to Jay-Z's current state of affairs ("I took a pay cut to become a exec/ So the next mother----er can earn his paycheck/ And even though these n---as talk greasy 'bout me/ Ask these n---as how they gonna eat without me!"), people think that there's some validity to rumors about the impending release of Blueprint 3.(source: also notes that Jay's current album, American Gangster has only released two singles so far, meaning it can keep going with promotion and sales of new songs. A rep for Jay-Z has declined to comment if Jay is cooking up a new Blueprint. His last Blueprint was considered a success by some, overdone by others, as it was a double LP called "The Gift and the Curse". It still offered several gems like Girls, Girls, Girls and Meet the Parents.

In the meantime, Jay will be headling the Glastonbury rock festival. Stay tuned, 2008 could see another Jay-Z classic, or return to the CEO/rapper from his failed album, Kingdom Come.
