Jay-Z and Regina Spektor Stack Some "Crispy Benjamins"


Like hardboiled noir detectives, we've been hitting the streets lately for the skinny on the shifting musical predilections of one Shawn Carter, AKA Jay-Z. We had our suspicions that he was wandering into, um, indie-er, musical territory when he put Luke Steele of Empire of the Sun on the opener of The Blueprint 3. Then came exhibit B: photographic proof of Beyoncé and he at a Grizzly Bear show in Brooklyn. Book 'em Danno, because we've got the last piece of evidence we need to wrap this one up: Jay-Z is sampling Regina Spektor for an upcoming track titled "Crispy Benjamins."
