Jay-Z says he’s ‘excited’ rather than angry about his new album Blueprint 3 leaking online.
Speaking to MTV News in the US the rapper said: "I may be the most bootlegged artist in history.
“It's a preview. I'm excited for people to hear the album. I'm very proud of the work I've done, so enjoy it.”
And he has announced a one off London gig at the Roundhouse venue on September 17. Jay will also support Coldplay later this month.
Jigga has also confirmed plans for a New York charity show on September 11.
The rapper will release his new record on that day- 8 years after 9/11 and the day his first Blueprint album was released.
At a press conference Jay said: "I'm humbled by this whole entire process. Just my whole evolution coming to this place. It just all worked out this way.
“The first album came out on this exact day, I was in Los Angeles and couldn't help out physically. For it to come full circle and us to be here and play Madison Square Garden and 100 percent of the proceeds going to [the charity]. I'm just humbled by the experience."
