Listen to an unreleased Jay Z demo from his "Black Album" days.
Those who follow Just Blaze on social media last night witnessed a rare event. Going through his old server, Blaze came across unreleased music he had worked on with Jay Z, Pharrell, and Missy Elliott, among others. He shared the tracks for his fans to see, blessing the interwebs with this unreleased greatness, before inexplicably deleting nearly all of the evidence.
Among the shared and tragically deleted demos include an alternate ending to "Touch the Sky," featuring heavyweight jazz pianist Robert Glasper, and "I Really Mean It" feat. Dipset. Fortunately, there is one video he has yet to delete: an unreleased Black Album-era track called "Early This Morning." Watch it below... is it Black Album caliber?
Just found 3 unheard Black Album era Jay x Pharrell demos on the server. 😵 I think we all forgot about these.— Just Blaze (@JustBlaze) December 9, 2015
