And by could’ve been we mean they actually were worse, as evidenced by this non-Blueprint 3 song produced by Timbaland. Next to “Ghetto Techno,” the other leaked BP3 Tim tracks—”Venus Vs Mars,” “Reminder” and “Off That”—sound like the lord himself rewrote “Planet Rock,” and “D.O.A.” and “Run This Town” actually deliver Penelope Cruz to your doorstep covered in honey with $100 bills stuck where necessary to keep her street legal (Javier Bardem for the ladies). But seriously, one of the goofiest threads on the internet is talking shit about Jay. These songs may not be good, but some of the other ones will be and his status as one of the best ever won’t be tarnished, just like when Brett Favre throws 9,000 interceptions this year and one sweet touchdown that reminds everyone how ridiculous he used to be.
