During his lengthy Q&A session with fans on Twitter Monday (July 8), Jay-Z was asked about "Dead Presidents 3," a snippet of which was originally leaked back in 2007 when he was working on American Gangster. Ask and you shall receive right? After the question Hov instructed Just Blaze and Young Guru to release the full song online.
"Dead Presidents" was originally released in '96 and "Dead Presidents II" appeared on Hov's debut Reasonable Doubt. "Just [Blaze] or [Young] Guru has it I give them Twitter permission to GO," he wrote. Unfortunately, Just Blaze wasn't that enthusiastic about dropping the "full song," since he argued that it had essentially made it's way to the public in bits and piece already.
