I haven’t been really excited about Jay Z since the Black Album was released in 2003, but I’m officially anticipating the release of The Blueprint 3. For me Jay is at his best on tracks like “99 Problems” and the recently released “Death of Autotune”, but I love that that he has the confidence to let a song like “Run This Town” really showcase Rihanna and Kanye’s talents. Kanye’s verse stands out to me on this track. Anytime I can here ‘Ye mix in references to internet sayings (no homo), shitty Toyota products (Rav 4), my favorite movies (Good Will Hunting), and my favorite wine (Riesling) all while telling us how great his life is, is a good track for me. Rihanna sounds great and Jay is obviously in a good place right now.

Listen to the “Run This Town” after the jump…
