Exclusive: Jay-Z’s 40th Birthday Mixtape Preview
If “December 4th” sounds familiar, it might be because it’s a Jay-Z song. And it’s a Jay-Z song, as any rap fan can tell you, because it’s his birthday. And today’s not just ANY birthday, it’s his big 4-0, so let us be the first (even though we’re probably not) to wish Jiggaman a very happy birthday, and many more on Channel 4, and Frankenstein on Channel 9, etc. etc. etc. In fact, we’ve tried to pass the birthday tidings onto YOU, our loyal readers, by leaking the tracklisting from the surprise mixtape Jay’s dropping tonight*.
See, with such a momentous occasion at hand, and as he gracefully transitioned into middle age, he realized that he’d be going through some changes in his life, as any aging man would. So he went back and re-recorded some of his greatest hits, with new titles and new lyrics, to reflect those changes. So read on for the tracklisting, and again Mr. Carter: happy birthday, and please don’t dismantle our company after reading this. It’s all love!

*Of course this is a parody. Happy birthday Hov!
Looks like the birthday boy’s got a new set of keys. Feast your eyes on the 2011 Jaguar XJ. Last night during the automaker’s showcase in LA, managing director Mike O’Driscoll, revealed the car will appear in Hov’s new video, “On To The Next One”. If you look closely, Jigga’s already placed his insignia on the side panel.
