MTV is streaming Jay-Z's new Blueprint 3. Jay-Z is playing a benefit show on September 11th at MSG. He recently held a press release about the planned show, which is embedded below along with a creepy video of Beyonce & Solange, who came with Jay-Z, to the Pool Party on Sunday (maybe you've heard?)..
Sorry for the delay in getting this post up. Nothing is going right lately.
