The video unfortunately loses the message because of the poor editing.

Puma Confirms Partnership With Jay Z For Upcoming 4:44 Tour: Exclusive

Jay Z and Puma are officially working together for the rapper's upcoming projects, including his recently announced 4:44 tour, a Puma source confirms to Billboard.

The speculation started when Live Nation tweeted out an image July 9 of Jay's now infamous orange 4:44 logo below a large barcode and next to a small cluster of symbols, including the American flag, Canadian flag, Puma and, of course, Tidal x Sprint.

"We can confirm that PUMA is working with Jay-Z on his upcoming tour and other collaborative projects," a rep told Billboard in an email. "More details will be shared at the appropriate time."

Too bad every video is pointless.

JAY-Z may still be keeping his acclaimed new album 4:44 off Spotify, but the rapper is now releasing the album on a new format: cassette tape.

The limited edition 4:44 cassette is now available for pre-order at just $9 a piece through Virgin EMI Records' online store -- but it gets better. Those who place orders before 6 p.m. BST (1 p.m. EST) on Friday, August 4 will also have the chance to win side-stage tickets to V Festival, which the rapper headlines.

9 $ isn't exactly cheap considering how rare functioning cassette players are in this day and age. I mean, I understand the "value" of collectors' items (I own plenty of rare items myself that serve no purpose aside from collecting dust and granting me bragging rights among certain select individuals :lol: ) - but I would at least want the theoretical possibility to play it.

He likes to hold Beyoncé back, I can't think of a reason for Lemonade to still be a TIDAL exclusive at this point.

4:44 as a track is so awful. The sample is too overpowering.

Elsewhere, Murphy also talks about JAY-Z, whose song “The Story of O.J.” is the one of the most recent songs he’s “gotten really excited about,” calling it “**** beautiful.”

JAY-Z Told Amy Winehouse “Stay With Us” the First Time They Met: Watch

Last week, JAY-Z sat down with Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller of the Rap Radar podcast for an extensive interview behind the release of his new album 4:44. During the hour-long talk, Hov discussed topics like the now-famous elevator scuffle with Solange, his controversial lyric about Jewish people on “The Story of O.J.” Now, the second part of the interview has been released. In it, JAY-Z talks about the song “Smile,” the making of his 4:44 bonus track “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family,” the first time he met Amy Winehouse, and more. Watch the full thing below.

Calling “Smile” one of his “proudest songs,” JAY-Z said, “My mom’s been a dope person her whole life. We had a beautiful conversation.... When she first heard the song, she said, ‘Absolutely not.’ But I said, ‘This is so important. So many people in the world, hiding and things like this, and that’s all I say about that.’ And that’s how we spoke about this song. I’m so happy with the person that she’s become.”

When asked about how Blue Ivy recorded over the “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family” beat, he revealed that he has a 5-minute video recording of her in the booth. “I’m talking about amazing pockets,” he said, referring to his daughter’s rhythm. “She understands the concept of a hook, she’s five... I was like, ‘what the **** is going on in here?’”

At one point in the interview, JAY-Z was asked to speak on the late Prodigy, who he beefed with in the early 2000s. In response, he said:

Prodigy, there was obviously no control over what happened to him, but we gotta take care of ourselves. I had super respect for Prodigy. In order for me to really spar with you, I gotta respect you. I sampled him for my first album, so you know I was aware of him and had respect for him. He and I spoke before he passed; I saw him in the club maybe five years ago. He just came over and we kicked it. It wasn’t about nothing. Just sad, you know? Blessings to his family. Young, young man....

After talking about the importance of mental health with respect to the recent passing of Chester Bennington, Hov drew parallels to Amy Winehouse’s early death. “She was telling us, she was writing the songs to our face. ‘They’re trying to make me go to rehab, I’m not going,’ like, what? You have to go!” He then talked about how, after seeing her perform at Joe’s Pub in New York City, he met her at the Spotted Pig, where she was stuttering. “‘I looked her, and I was like, ‘stay with us,’” he said. “The first time we hung out, I said, ‘stay with us.’”

Is this true or exaggeration?

Jay Z’s ‘4:44’ Tour Is a Disaster: $6 Seats, Half-Filled Stadiums…
The cheap seats aren’t even selling. And the stadiums are half full. Is it over? Jay-Z is now facing lackluster demand and sagging ticket prices on his ‘4:44’ tour.

I just read he canceled one show without a reason. And then someone notice the ticket sales for that particular location were a low...but that it.

But hasn't he had a good touring record for a rapper?
