On the eve of Magna Carta… Holy Grail’s official release to non-Samsung Galaxy users, Jay-Z held an impromptu Q&A with fans via Twitter. Assuring his fans there are no ghost tweeters behind his @S_C_ account, Hova answered a slew of questions including his inspirations behind a few #MCHG tracks, a gentrified Brooklyn, his favorite Michael Jackson songs, and so much more. Yet when asked if there was a finished version to “Dead Presidents 3,” the legendary Brooklyn emcee responded with “Just or Guru has it I give them Twitter permission to GO.” Without any hesitation Young Guru – the longtime engineer of Jay – took to Twitter to bless us all with the finished version to the aforementioned track. Hip-hop heads may remember this ode to the almighty dollar first premiered on a DJ Green Lantern mixtape back in 2007, but has since sat comfortably in Guru’s vault, which surely holds plenty more unreleased tracks. Check it out below and cop Jay-Z’s 12th studio album on iTunes today.
