Jay-Z Preps DJ Green Lantern Collab Mixtape for Release

Jay-Z Preps DJ Green Lantern Collab Mixtape for Release
You can always count on Jay-Z to have some project on the back burner, even when he's got another four on the go. Never one to let fans down, Hova has revealed that he's just about ready to drop his four-years-in-the-making mixtape with DJ Green Lantern.

Titled Creative Control, the mixtape was supposed to drop in 2006 as Presidential Invasion, a promotional mixtape for Jay's The Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life quest to aid African countries in the pursuit of clean water, but it never materialized, leaving fans to wait another four years for the collaboration. Now, as Consequence of Sound points out, the mixtape is about to be released as a 36-track digital download featuring remixes, live appearances and never-before-heard tracks from both Green Lantern and Jay-Z.

The mixtape, which features guest spots from the likes of Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Freeway, Rihanna, Nas and, yes, 2Pac, among others, is available for pre-order right now for $2.99 by clicking here.

The album has no official release date as of yet, but a tracklist is available below, leading us to believe it should be out sometime soon. We repeat, should.
