The G.O.O.D. Music signee says he originally vetoed using the beat after ‘Ye played it for him.

Pusha T recently revealed that he originally passed on the Hit-Boy-produced beat that eventually became Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris.” Speaking with Sneeze magazine, the Clipse member said that he doesn’t know if it would have been as good if it ended up in his possession and that he would have attacked it in a different way.

“I tell people all the time that I don’t know if I would’ve attacked it that way which means the record might not have been as special once I got on it,” he said.

Pusha Ton continued by explaining that Kanye gave him the beat and that he simply wasn’t in the right state of mind to rap over it.

“‘Ye gave me beats and that was in the bunch. ‘Niggas in Paris’ was playful to me and I was in demonic rap mode. I was like, ‘Yo, I don’t want this right now,’ he was like, ‘Man, this will be a club smash,’ and I’m like, ‘Maybe, but don’t ask me to wrap my brain around that when I’m writing stuff like ‘My God,’ which is another Hit Boy beat.”

Hov preps an expanded version of his “New York Times” bestseller.

Jay-Z is set to rerelease his New York Times bestseller Decoded on November 1st (via RR).

The memoir, which deconstructs lyrics from his tracks, will be reissued in a new expanded paperback that includes a new chapter, seven additional illustrations and three new decoded tracks (“I Know,” “Young Gz,” “Lost Ones”).

Hov also lent his pen to a new Afterword to be included in the book. “What still excites me about rap is that it’s an open thread, a cipher that listeners find their own meanings in,” he writes. “The point of this book is not to settle arguments or transform rap songs into neat stories with a beginning, middle, and end. Rather, I’m trying to point readers to some ideas and information, get them to see deeper into the music than they saw before and learn more about worlds different from their own (or find new ways of looking at the worlds they already know)—to find their own meanings and connect them back to their own lives. I want readers to see the craft and learn the context—and I want them to still be able to feel the magic, and enjoy the show.”

In just four days out, Weezy’s latest sells more than 300,000 copies in the digital store.

Just a few weeks after Jay-Z and Kanye West broke the first week sales record for iTunes with Watch the Throne, Lil Wayne accomplished the same feat with his latest album Tha Carter IV in just four days.

According to HHNM, Weezy has sold more than 300,000 copies of his latest offering since it hit the web on early Monday at midnight. In its first week, TC4 is now expected to move between 925,000 and 975,000 copies, whereas earlier estimates put the album between 850,000 and 900,000 units.

In its first week out, Watch the Throne broke Coldplay’s previous iTunes record for first week sales, moving roughly 290,000 copies.

There is no doubt that Lil Wayne’s lyrics on “It’s Good” and their relation to Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé are the talk of the industry right now. Vibe caught up with the “skateboarding Gremlin” for an upcoming October/November story and conversed with him about possible second thoughts about recording his acidic verse and the resulting buzz.

“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did. I know for a fact music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction. I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen before I even say [something on record]. I do know what will happen. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”

More news and confirmation surround Kanye West and Jay-Z highly anticpated collaborative project emerge. According to an official press release, the official release dates for the album have changed. Now, the LP will arrive on iTunes August 8 and will hitstores August 8th and 12th. In order to grace this release properly, the duo – now known as The Throne – has announced has announced tour dates for this fall. Tickets go on sale August 8, the same day the album is released exclusively on iTunes, whereas pre-sale will be available on Thursday on the website www.LiveNation.com/WatchTheThrone.
