Jay-Z Week has been canceled

Those that follow me on Twitter.org will (maybe) know that a few weeks ago I started planning a special feature for this website called Jay-Z Week, to coincide with the release of his new album The Blueprint 3.

The idea/website takeover, which was scheduled to run all next week, originally 'sprouted' after the initial double shot of orgasmic joy (ie. D.O.A and Run This Town). Basically, the plan was for it to be a week long romp of high fives between us and Mr Shawn Carter, highlighting all of the moments of his fairly successful career, right from his stunning debut Reasonable Doubt through to his latest work.

Then The Blueprint 3 leaked.

Aside from maybe The Blueprint 2, Kingdom Come and his terrible R-Kelly/Linkin Park collabs, The Blueprint 3 is the worst record to ever carry the name "Jay-Z" on the cover. It's an absolute mess of half-executed ideas and lazy songs that sound like they were rushed because Mr Beyonce was late for a basketball game. I seriously think Jay has dropped sloppy shits that sound better than this record.

So, due to the complete suckiness of the new album - Jay-Z Week has been canned.

He doesn't deserve his own week and our time is better spent telling you all about music that doesn't sound like it was thrown together in a few hours on a quiet Sunday afternoon. There will still be a full review of The Blueprint 3 coming sometime in the not-too-distant future, but I guess you all know how that's going to go down. The planned Jay-Z podcast episode will also probably find itself onto this webspace sometime soon, mainly because it kinda highlights the fact that Mr Z has actually got some golden moments in his back catalogue.
