Hear the 13-minute version of “DoYaThing” — right here, right now (if you thought I was done covering this, you’d be wrong!). If you didn’t already know, André repeatedly reminds you in this version that he’s the shit. And James Murphy’s touch on the song is highlighted in this version. It’s simply amazing.
In case you were wondering what those wild verses are talking about.
New word: onomatopoeia. Boom! Quit acting like you don’t wanna be here. Fuck around and get jumped like Lee(?) Get glocced in the club, make ya really wanna leave me-a-lone. Get off and gone, gone OK, OK, OK back to the happy song Rap ain’t nuttin’ but the art talking ish My girl look pretty up there, right here My plaid pants, my solid future, Asinine ass, and a glorious cooch-er I’m an Outkast, but you’re into me Summer got mad cause Winter blew me That juicy fruit, that shplooshy-shploosh Generation X on bloop de bloop Get duked, gotta get duked, duked Everybody hit the floor, we through the roof - Ha! Like a chimney, I commend me How come it be Some lame man, we can talk about “Oh, he don’t rap enough” But yeah I rap a lot and I’mma wrap it up, ho Ye ain’ Scarface, ye ain’ Willie D, Ye ain’ Bushwick, ye ain’ killing me Better play wit’ yo momitcha mama, Bet you can’t stay wit’ yo momitchka mama Keep sleeping on, I’mma rock my pajamas In the daytime I swear, I promise Dare a nigger say sumpin’, tear a nigga face off How come blacks don’t play baseball?

Do ya damn thang, do ya thang-a-thang Do ya damn thang, do ya thang-a-thang Do ya damn thang, do ya thang-a-thang Need fresh-squeezed juice, giving you that tang.
Seriously. Have you downloaded this track yet? Hop to it!
Well, today’s Jam is a no-brainer. This is Gorillaz and James Murphy and André 3000 with the long-awaited (and totally worth it) “DoYaThing” (2012). It’s free to download and listen, and there’s going to be a video as well as 12-MINUTE extended version out soon.
The short version of the highly, HIGHLY anticipated Gorillaz-James Murphy-André 3000 collaboration is now free to download over at Converse. This is the short version; a 12-minute (!!!) version is on the way, as well as a music video. Read more at Pitchfork.
If you wondered to yourself, “Where are those Jammys?”, I apologize. JotD wasn’t anticipating having so much happen this week (in a good way — exciting announcement coming soon!). But, never fear, I am working on a contingency plan for our beloved awards.
Until I sort this out (tomorrow), how about a Jam?
Hot off the presses, this is Young Jeezy’s “I Do (Remix)” (2012). The original featured verses from Jay-Z and André 3000, and this remix throws Drake into the mix.
Imma let fellow Tumblr-er Audio Rehab (audio-rehab) explain this one:
NEW MUSIC: Young Jeezy featuring Andre 3000 & Jay-Z, “I Do”
Anyone remember Andre 3000’s verse called “I Do?” Well, more than a year after its first emergence the full version of the song arrives. Surprisingly though, the song belongs to Jeezy and also features Jay-Z on the microphone. This pretty much says it all, so make sure to tune in below. TM:103: Hustlerz Ambition is coming December 20.
Jeezy’s also got a new video for the a recently released T.I. collaboration called “F.A.M.E.”. It’s not as good, but check it out:
Lloyd ft. André 3000 & Lil Wayne – “Dedication to My Ex (Miss That)”
The only pussy left in this song is a cat filling in for André. Yep, the lyrics have been cleaned up (see the original lyric video here) so that the emerging Lloyd could capitalize on the “Forget You” craze. How do you clean up Lil Wayne, though? Answer … well, watch.
Tha Carter IV is almost here, and while I’m not sure there’s a better track than "6 Foot 7 Foot", the hype is high! Like, almost Watch the Thronehigh. You can pretty much fine every track on the YouTube if you can’t wait; Stereogum also has a breakdown. I’m intrigued by an “Interlude” that has no Weezy rapping, but does a rap-for-your-life verse from Tech N9ne followed by what is becoming a requisite-if-you’re-anybody-in-hip-hop appearance from André 3000. Check it out above.
A Jam of the Day can be new or old, black or white, hard and fast like you in the club or slow and sweet like you're makin' love. There is only one rule: It must make you say, "Man, that's a JAM."
