Despite its preview at Kanye West's gig, top secret of Jay-Z's work on his upcoming album "The Blueprint 3" has been further leaked by a hip hop producer Mick Boogie. The rapper has reportedly confirmed to sign Kanye as producer for most of the tracks in his forthcoming album.

Jay-Z had previously named Timbaland and Kanye as possible producers to handle his upcoming album. However, Timbaland had misunderstood the news and confidently said that Jay-Z has chosen him to produce the whole tracks. Jay-Z lightly denied the claim by stating that he will only choose the one who can come up with good materials. Now, Jay-Z's denial has apparently been strengthened by Mick's statement.

'Pineapple' Ran Out of Smoke for Box Office's Top, Fourth in a Row for 'Dark Knight'

August 11, 2008 02:37:15 GMT


All bets are off. Despite its stunning start on Wednesday, August 6, "Pineapple Express" doesn't really have what it takes to dethrone "The Dark Knight" from its crowning seat at the North American weekend box office. Having pushed "Dark Knight" from its #1 position when it debuted, the stoner flick from Seth Rogen should settle for the second place.

With $23.2 million, "Pineapple" does not only gross less than the superhero flick, but also could not outdo Rogen's other comedy film "Knocked Up" which earned $30.7 million over the three-days weekend in 2007. Still, the David Gordon Green-directed movie has covered up its reported $27 million production budget from its five days of screening collecting in total $41.3 million.
