Default Def Jam Takes Jay-Z "Show Me" Leak Seriously, Song Explodes On Radio



While millions of fans are not complaining about today's (Oct. 6) leak of Jay-Z's single "Show Me," his label, Def Jam is taking the breach seriously and may pursue legal action against the individual responsible for the leak.

While no one knows who the culprit behind the leak is, sources told AllHipHop.com that Def Jam has launched an internal investigation, fearing that the rapper's forthcoming comeback album Kingdom Come may be leaked in its entirety.

"The FBI may do an investigation into this," an anonymous source told AllHipHop.com. "Everything has been under lock and key, so we have no idea how the single was leaked."

"Show Me," which samples a saxophone loop originally used on Public Enemy's "Show Em Whatcha Got" from the group's 1988 Def Jam album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, hit the Internet today and quickly went into rotation on radio stations around the United States.

The single, which was produced by Just Blaze, gained immediate and repeated airplay on stations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta.

"I played it six times in a row at 6:00 pm today," Atlanta DJ Greg Street told AllHipHop.com. Street, who airs on Atlanta's V103 Monday through Thursday in the 6-10pm slot, said the feedback has been tremendous.

"It was so crazy [Island/Def Jam Music Group CEO] LA Reid & [Def Jam A&R] Shakir Stewart called into V-103's hotline," Street said.

Jay-Z himself was told of the leak during a performance at the Accra International Conference Center in Ghana, Africa.

Unauthorized full length albums from The Roots, Pharrell and Lupe Fiasco have all found their way to the Internet prior to hitting stores.

Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor was pushed back several times, after the original version was leaked and bootlegged months before the album's completion.

Jay-Z's Kingdom Come will reportedly hits stores Nov. 21. The album features production by Just Blaze, Kanye West, Pharrell, Timberland and others.

Def Jam wants to scare whoever leaked the single into submission. As the article says, they're afraid that the person, or someone else, may leak the album in its entirety, so they want to both get to the bottom of this leak, and let people know that they are serious about keeping the album under raps until its release. Jay's album doesn't come out for another month and a half... I'm sure he doesn't want his album leaked 5 or 6 weeks in advance of release, and getting the FBI involved, which may not even be true, is a way of scaring whoever may have had intentions to leak it into not doing so. Def Jam's actually in the right here. What if there was an official release party or a partnership with a radio station or venue stipulating that they would be the first to have the single and play it... That's over with now... Radio stations are already playing it. We have no idea what the plans were for this single... Def Jam's just doing what they feel is right to protect their product, and I agree with them.

Search on LimeWire thats where I got it, the beat is fire ( prod by Just Blaze) but Jay's lyrics and flow are mediocre at best.

How can anyone say that beat is good, it's garbage. It's a bunch of horns playing. Sounds like a better version of John Cena's entrance music "My Time Is Now"
