Jay-Z “D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)” CDQ + Sample Source + Summer Jam Video THAT’S IT

June 08, 2009

Since debuting Friday night on Flex's Hot 97 show, Jay's new street single for Blueprint 3 has appeared in our inboxes in at least five different incarnations: radio rip, radio rip w/out DJ Clue's name being edited out of the third verse, clean CD-quality, dirty CD-quality and CD-quality with extra cheese. This is apparently the CDQ version but still sounds a little muddy to us. Regardless, expect there to be 1,001 rappers jumping on No I.D.'s ridiculous beat in the next month or so.

A couple days ago we were thinking this might ignite the kind of creative nuclear war that would see super producers and rappers and rappas ternt sangas launching megaton jams for the rest of the summer. Jay bringing out T-Pain during his performance of "D.O.A." at Summer Jam yesterday (video above) makes it pretty clear they're all bros. So, unless DJ Webstar or Ron Browz or Ricky Blaze or Cher or all of Jamaica decide to go in, it looks like we're just going to get a well-conceived plan to market Blueprint 3. Unless, that is, Lil Wayne has something to say about all this? Come on, dudes, give us something. Jay-Z just sonned your whole life.
