Jay-Z fires back at critics on the politically-charged “Open Letter” which got a 7:45am wake up call debut on Hot 97 today. Hov addresses the backlash on his recent trip to Cuba, his ownership stake in the Brooklyn Nets, and his new deal with Universal on the Swizz Beatz and Timbaland-produced joint. Life + Times.
While in NYC, TDE heads to a late night studio session for ScHoolboy Q’s upcoming album ‘OxyMoron’ where TDE CEO ‘TopDawg’ happens to surprise Kendrick with a verse from Jay-Z on the official “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” remix. Cameras were on hand to capture his reaction to the first listen.
The other day, Hov and Timbo joined Swizz and Drake in the studio. No word on what was being worked on, but I’m just gonna guess Drake’s next album Nothing Was The Same.
