A dream collaboration of Jay Z and Jay Electronica (Jay Elect) became a reality today with the release of “We Made It”. Jigga and Jay Electronica have rapped over the Drake and Soulja Boy track (also titled “We Made It”) but fans are relishing the thought of a full length Jay Z and Jay Electronica project which we anticipate may be in the works. No official word on a full length project has been announced but we will be keeping a close eye on any developments.

Following the highly discussed “Open Letter” track from Jay-Z, I wanted to share Open Letter Pt II which features none other than Common. As personal and direct as ever, Common addresses Jay and Beyonce’s recent trip to Cuba, along with some personal gripes against the media along with some clever wordplay in his verse.

Following the release of Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s collaborative album “Watch The Throne” here is the official video for the single “Otis”. The highly successful Watch The Throne is expecting to sell record numbers within the first few weeks of its release, and the video for Otis is sure to aid the promotion of the album. You can download Jay Z and Kanye West – Watch the Throne from the link used above, however you can also watch Jay Z and Kanye West – Otis on the video player below.
The word is out that Kanye and Jay-Z are at odds with each other just days before the release of their highly anticipated “Watch the Throne” album.
Neither party has addressed rumors that they have been arguing, but insiders are revealing that “Jay-Z can’t deal with Kanye.”
“Jay is a stone cold businessman. He wants to recoup all of his money from Live Nation. But Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a blowout show. He doesn’t care about costs. He has a lot less to gain from the shows.”
It seems the negotiations about the tour plans have torn the talented artists apart. Hopefully they can patch things up before hitting the road for their tour.
Props to Jamzone Media for the news.
The track, “The Joy” features Curtis Mayfield and is the third song to be heard from the duo’s album, the first was “H.A.M” and the second was Otis.
