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.

Furthermore, Mick also says that Jay-Z will add new verses to single "Jockin' Jay-Z" and as soon as the final touch finished, the single will be released. Beside "Jockin' Jay-Z", another track that is confirmed to be in the album is "Victory". Unfortunately, there hasn't any further information about the single.

Elsewhere, the hip hop star has joined New York officials in an effort to transform New York city into traffic-free playgrounds this weekend. Together with the city's Mayor Michael Bloomberg, he has announced a new program that will close 11.3 kilometers (seven miles) of city road starting from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park.

Furthermore, his involvement has made some hope that teens will be inspired and get involved in more positive activities, such as playing music or doing some sports. This program is scheduled to run every Saturday until August 23.
