We might have heard pieces of it over the weekend. On Saturday (December 8th) James Blake performed in Brooklyn, at 99 Scott. While there, Blake previewed some unreleased (new?) music. One of the tracks he previewed was a track featuring a verse from the mythical legend André 3000.

It’s hard to hear what Andre is saying, but it’s clearly him rapping over Blake’s sparse production. Earlier this year, Blake and 3000 collaborated on “Look Ma No Hands,” which appeared on André’s surprise two-track Mother’s Day tribute.
