Jay-Z Enlists Drake for New Single

Jay-Z and Drake

Jay-Z has the streets on lock with his buzz single “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune).” Now the best rapper alive is preparing to unleash his radio single featuring the most-talked-about artist of the moment.

DJ Skee had the opportunity to preview “Off That,” Jay’s first single from The Blueprint 3. “I don’t want to really ruin the surprise,” the host of Sirius XM’s “Skeetox” radio show reluctantly tells Rap-Up.com. “I mean it’s Jay, he’s killing it.”

While he didn’t disclose details, he did build anticipation for the record. “Jay sounds pretty incredible, man.”

Skee confirmed that hip-hop’s hottest newcomer, Drake, lends his talent to the song and that we should hear it in July, while The Blueprint 3 is expected in September.

    i don’t understand all the hype about Drake? No offense to him but, to me, he’ll always be known as little wheel chair Jimmy in Degrassi.

    Damn y’all some Drake haters…he’s probably better than your favorite rapper. And if your favorite rapper is Jay-Z then he’s your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. All I’m saying is don’t hate before you even get to know what dude’s message is and what he’s all about…

    I was about to say for Jay to enlist the help of Drake on his last studio album for Def Jam ever, that is a big deal! This album is a part of a trilogy..but then I remembered..this shit is independent lol

    waoow there are some crazy haters in here. If u think jay lost his swag and drake is shit and over rated you are not eligible to comment on this topic. Because you don’t know hip-hop and ur opinions are just based off hate, listen to yourselves.

    Lana B. Easy is an idiot. I doubt very much that Jay-Z even has a favorite rapper. He is enlisting drake because all the little girls and perez hilton’s will buy his singles on iTunes. Jay sees $$$ not talent.

    ENVY IS FORM OF HATERED AND IS MOTIVATION FOR SUCCESS FOR THE PERSON BEING HATED ON. JAYZ is a businessman first than a rapper second. He came in the game with insight on how the ‘game is ran’ hence the endorsements, night clubs and clothing lines. JAYZ is catering to the up and coming (DRAKE) similar to JAYZ honoring UGK (introduce them to ‘Hollywood’ and MTV) on Big Pimpin, Mary J. on Reasonble Doubt, wrote Dr.Dre raps on Eniemen singles and gave life support to varies other whack rappers careers. This ‘Game’ is chest not checkers! Lil Wayne similiar to other rappers music needs to develop and grow up!
