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."
