Jay-Z keeping Blueprint 3 Safe

According to a source close to Jay-Z, the rapper is taking no chances with his new material for Blueprint 3. Jigga will be hand delivering his material to his label over in London, because he's worried about potential leaks of tracks to the internet. Jay doesn't want all his songs out online prior to Blueprint 3's release on September 11th, 2009. Jay will arrive in London sometime next week.

According to Yahoo News UK-Ireland:

The source says, "Every time a big artist has new music ready these days someone somewhere is always keen to pinch it and whack it on the internet. Jay is very protective and smart and doesn't want fans to hear tracks which aren't quite right. He wants to give the record to the label in the UK and see which songs go down best to give him ideas about single releases."

So far, just two tracks have really been released from the upcoming third part in the Blueprint trilogy. "D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)" came out just a few months ago, and just days ago "Run this Town" featuring Rihanna and Kanye West debuted on the radio, and went viral online. Previous cuts by Jay-Z, "Brooklyn Go Hard" and "Jockin' Jay-Z" are reportedly not part of the new Blueprint 3 album.
