The Blueprint 3 Outtakes

An A&R at Rocafella contacted Alex Goose to submit instrumentals for Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 album. None of these made the cut, but the internet is buzzing about the album that could have been.

    Nice! Thanks for the heads-up Jeff; I always find these things too late…

  • the beat for “Rise” sounds identical to “The Arrival” on Atmosphere’s You Can’t Imagine album…

    I’ll have to find it to be sure

    • that’s true.
      It was also used by 1200 hobos back in the day, which of course are closely affiliated with the rhymesayers. As for Alex, wow, can we get someone to drop the acapellas over these beats? They are amazing!

  • Eric

    this is really great stuff, but at least 5 of the tracks are arranged EXACTLY like tracks from Atmosphere produced by Ant. One might be from a Brother Ali album. same sample, same arrangement. dang.

  • yea walk away is similar to atmosphere’s “pour me another”. too much of a coincidence for both of them to come from the same album.

    in any case i was disappointed with majority of the production on Blueprint 3 and many of these instrumentals would have been welcome substitutes in my opinion

  • thanks for the heads up on this

  • The “Rise” sample is also on the Fat Joe “Me, Myself & I” album. The track is called “Damn”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLZSQ2xbguc

  • ummmmmmm….excuse me but
    atmosphere – pour me another
    = alex goose – walk away
    THEY ARE IDENTICAL.

    • ya pretty much, i’ve seen this discussion pop up on all the sites that posted the album, id be interested to hear what he has to say

  • The Fat Joe track, “Rise”, and “The Arrival” all sample Bo Hansson’s “Excursions with Complications”.

    you can listen to the original here:

    all of them speed up the sample to roughly the same tempo and loop the same portion of the song. you be the judge.

  • i don’t know man, tough call. i think at may have him on this one. you can speed up the tempo, but your still copying the same sped up tempo.

  • Some pretty sick stuff in here!

  • Ya hold up…”on my soul” is definitely a Brother Ali beat, from the Champion Ep I believe. Plus Walk Away and Rise were both used by Ant on “I can’t Believe how much fun…” (That Fat Joe version rips BTW). Plus for the Roc Boys remix he just uses that old Big Daddy Kane beat, which surprise, Ant also used on an Atmosphere mixtape (as an homage to that classic of course). I mean producers use the same samples all the time but this is a bit too much, at least flip it differently. Man, I don’t know the rest of it sounds like poor man’s Dilla/stones throw too.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
