When Jay-Z released The Black Album in November of 2003 the final master contained fourteen tracks. That ultimate total was narrowed down from a much higher number, most of which are sitting nicely in Jay’s gigantic catalog. You think 2pac has a sick catalog? Allow us to introduce you to Mr. Carter. Straight off Big Mike’s new mixtape, Presidential Invasion, DJ Green Lantern uses a brand new beat from Young Guru (reminiscent of production work from Jay’s debut, Reasonable Doubt) and unused vocals from the never-before-heard cut, Dead Presidents III. While the record is only 1:27, it reaffirms that Jay doesn’t need a pen or paper to create music; just a mic and his brain.
