That was the preliminary tracklisting.

The Nas version will not be on the album, Empire State of Mind will be a collabo featuring Alicia Keys.

can you honestly see yourself bumping this in six months? the beat has zero replay value. timbaland hasn't produced hip hop for a while and it shows; the beat is almost as phoned in as jay's verses.

Does anybody remember when Timberland was the top producer in Hip Hop?

He could switch sounds at will, and get your feet stomping to his beats. Every Beat I've heard from him sounds similar from that Madonna/JT track, Flo-Rida track, and now Off That. smh.

**** happens, sometimes artists do collabos but change up the track. Hopefully the Jay-Z/Nas version will get leaked somewhere.

The Official Tracklisting is already out, if anything changes it would be late in the process.

His singles are mainstream, but his singles are trash. DOA shouldn't have been released as a single, that had the makings of a perfect intro. Run This Town will probably be his biggest single for this album due to Kanye & Rihanna assisting him while he bites Fab's flow. Off That is pathetic, and typical Jay-Z not allowing Drake to contribute a verse to outshine Jay on his own single.

Why the **** is Drake even on the track if hes only rapping part of the hook but listed as a Feature.

last 3 albums American Gangster, Kingdom Come, and the Black Album: yes i have listened to them and enjoy them.

Don't really know what you mean by his album full of mainstream fillers because it surely doesn't sound like what i hear in the radio.. and i barely hear Jay-Z on the radio at all.

d.o.a. wasn't released as a single, it was just released with a video but it was not his first single "run this town" is. Biting's fab's flow? you gotta be kidding me. you do know that Jay is highly influenced by Biggie and Fab is highly influenced by both Biggie and Jay. It's all similar. Surprised Drake didn't get a verse and i admit im not feeling the song. If you have listened to Loso's Way Jay-Z is a feature on a song but doesn't drop a verse.

Jay-Z is making good albums. He puts a mainstream feel to it to sell records. Remember the real hip hop fans DO NOT make up the majority of the sales... "Dumb down for my audience to double my dollars.. they criticize me for it but they all yell holla.." His verses even though not at the level of his classics STILL HAS MEANING lol. that's hip hop. that's the art in hip hop. not random bars that doesn't talk about nothing but happens to attract young kids. his flow is still smooth and his lyrics, verses still has meaning, and it's still good. that's all im worried about.

though i do admit after 1 listen, i don't care much for this song but i haven't really gave it a good listen.

The song's cool. I see it going over well with the Top 40 stations than the hip-hop stations. So who ever said it sounds a bit mainstream is correct. I was slightly dissappointed that Drake didn't get his shine. The hell was he a hook guy for? Was Jay-Z scared or something? (Calm down folks! It was a joke...or not. Ha!). The little he was given, it turned out nice. The hook is catchy. I could already see the little kids running to Facebook and updating their status with Drake's hook.

That song was COMPLETE UTTER GARBAGE. Everything was wrong. The production, the hook, the verses. Shoot, even the damn video was wack! The first couple of minutes was a

Not bad, I like the verses but the hook is pretty plain.
