A previously unreleased Kanye West track featuring JAY-Z made its way onto the web last night (May 29). The title of the record is “Livin So Italian” and features a sample of singer Andrea Bocelli. The song has been previewed before, first heard at a listening party for Kanye West and JAY-Z’s 2011 stellar album Watch the Throne, but it was never officially released.
One thing to point out is that the verse delivered by JAY-Z is the same verse used on the Magna Carta Holy Grail cut “FuckWitMeYouKnowIGotIt.” Reddit users from HipHopHeads points out that this is half the track with a full 3:06 version coming soon and there is no CD quality version currently in circulation. Listen to the unreleased song here.
