I’m not even from New York yet this song is still unbelievably inspiring. I’ve had it on repeat all week because it keeps me in high spirits. I love Alicia’s voice, I love the soaring musical background, and I love Jay-Z’s visually descriptive lyrics.

“Empire State of Mind” might not be single material but I’ll be surprised if it isn’t one of the best damn tracks on The Blueprint 3.

Something tells me that Jay-Z is going to deliver yet another hip hop classic with The Blueprint 3.

Keep your fingers crossed…

    @jojo LMAO about Kanye. You can tell that he feels so fly with shades on though. He already popularized his “Stronger” shades and I bet he’ll come out with another pair of crazy-ass lookin’ shades that catch on with a buncha people. Since he’s a fashion designer now he’ll have plenty of chances to do more of that kinda stuff.
