HipHopDX reports:

Def Jam revealed today that they intend on re-packaging 2001′s Blueprint album, along with 2002′s Blueprint 2 as one, to coincide with his Blueprint 3 release…

Retailers will display the combined album package at a reported discounted price, furthering Jay’s overall catalog scans with Def Jam. The work (titled The Blueprint Collection) will also include a collector’s item poster.

*rubs chin*

If you are Jay-Z….are you happy about this?

this is the kind of “news reporting” on major outlets (in this case, Fox News) that is just suspect…..They’re reporting that Hov is writing “a tell-all” book? Including juicy deets on Mrs. Beyonce Carter. Oh, really? See the clip after the jump…

So…after years of playing things close to the chest, and even cancelling the publication of the Dream-Hampton-penned Black Book biography…suddenly Hov decides to get his Ruth Reichl/Faith Evans/Karrine Steffans/Jose Canseco on?

Or, did Fox News base their report on this extremely fuzzy clip in the UK Daily Mirror, headlined: “How will Beyonce feel about Jay-Z’s warts-and-all autobiography?”
