LISTEN: Jay-Z Calls Out Haters in New Song


It looks like Jay-Z still has ninety-nine problems — and those who envy or criticize him are at the top of the list.

In the new Blueprint 3 leak “Hate,” the rap superstar reaches out to all who diss, wondering what he did to earn their ire. “You haters, how do I gain your favor?” Jay-Z asks.”I need to know ’cause I care / I need you to love me, I swear.”

Kanye West, who produced, guests on the track, declaring that he, too, just wants some sugar — especially from all those girls “who love Katy Perry.”

“Hate” is the third peek at The Blueprint 3, following “D.O.A. (Death to AutoTune)” and current single “Run This Town,”which features West, Rihanna and a badass video.

The Blueprint 3 drops September 11, the same day Jay-Z hosts a 9/11 benefit concert in New York.For Jay’s sake, we hope the show will be hater-free.
