Uh oh…when Jay-Z gets mad enough or inspired enough to record an impromptu song at 9pm on a Weds night in New York City… we all win! And this morning, the Hot97 Morning Show teamed up with Jay-Z’s LifeAndTimes site to share the results. A heated editorial called “Open Letter.” According to Hot97′s Ebro, Hov was disgusted by the fact that when tuning into CNN, the controversy surrounding him and wife Beyonce’s Cuba trip was the lead story over an international crisis like the North Korean political threat. So he recruited Swizz Beats and Timbaland on a beat, and spat some fire and venom. Clearly, another thing thats been “grinding Jay-Z’s gears” is the discussion about the value of his stake in the Brooklyn Nets now that he is selling that percentage to gain his sports agency accreditation.

Steve Stoute's career in music was unprecedented—he did it all from managing Nas to producing chart-smashing albums at Interscope.

It has worked on campaigns with major companies like State Farm and Coca-Cola, among others. And this month, Stoute officially added another award to his wall.

Justin Timberlake presents his first return to music in an official capacity in nearly seven years with the Jay-Z-assisted Suit & Tie – pulled from his recently announced new album The 20/20 Experience. The Timbaland-produced track dropped late Sunday night on an evening where attention was on the Golden Globes – a night celebrating various achievements from the world of TV and cinema – and seemed fitting given Timberlake’s musical absence was due in large part to an acting bug that saw him working on such films as The Social Network and Trouble with the Curve. Enjoy.
