No, “Yes Men” here. Guru admits to telling Hov his opinion on his records. In fact, he says Jay switched his verses on “Already Home” and “Forever Young.” Good luck on finding those, leakers.

I remember when MTV had their VMA details on lock and key. Well in today’s Twitter Nation that’s hard. First, news broke about Jay-Z and Alicia possibly closing the show with “Empire State of Mind,” now comes word that MJ’s baby sis is workin’ day and night to do her brother justice with an amazing performance. Can’t wait.

Last Friday, I caught up with engineer extraordinaire Gimel “Young Guru” Keaton at Roc The Mic studios. For nearly a decade, Guru’s added the finishing touches on all of The Roc’s releases. With Blueprint 3 in stores today, he spoke on the album’s delay and fine tuning it in the 50th state. More clips on the way.
