While millions of fans are not complaining about today's (Oct. 6) leak of Jay-Z's single "Show Me," his label, Def Jam is taking the breach seriously and may pursue legal action against the individual responsible for the leak.

While no one knows who the culprit behind the leak is, sources told AllHipHop.com that Def Jam has launched an internal investigation, fearing that the rapper's forthcoming comeback album Kingdom Come may be leaked in its entirety.

"The FBI may do an investigation into this," an anonymous source told AllHipHop.com. "Everything has been under lock and key, so we have no idea how the single was leaked."

"Show Me," which samples a saxophone loop originally used on Public Enemy's "Show Em Whatcha Got" from the group's 1988 Def Jam album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, hit the Internet today and quickly went into rotation on radio stations around the United States.

The single, which was produced by Just Blaze, gained immediate and repeated airplay on stations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta.

"I played it six times in a row at 6:00 pm today," Atlanta DJ Greg Street told AllHipHop.com. Street, who airs on Atlanta's V103 Monday through Thursday in the 6-10pm slot, said the feedback has been tremendous.

"It was so crazy [Island/Def Jam Music Group CEO] LA Reid & [Def Jam A&R] Shakir Stewart called into V-103's hotline," Street said.

Jay-Z himself was told of the leak during a performance at the Accra International Conference Center in Ghana, Africa.

Unauthorized full length albums from The Roots, Pharrell and Lupe Fiasco have all found their way to the Internet prior to hitting stores.

Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor was pushed back several times, after the original version was leaked and bootlegged months before the album's completion.

Jay-Z's Kingdom Come will reportedly hits stores Nov. 21. The album features production by Just Blaze, Kanye West, Pharrell, Timberland and others.

Its also in the MP3 thread in here. I just d/l'd it.

There is a reason for the leaks besides greed and I see that reason so I dont feel bad d/l'ing it. I got respect for other artist. I am particular to whom I d/l. I have never d/l albums unless there was just no other way to get them. Shit...this opens up a can of worms but I have to be careful what I say now cuz there are more snakes than I knew about up in here.....up in here.

Its a sad day when one of the founding fathers or should I say first financial backers of the hip-hop movement, become the enemy. I just added Def Jam to the list of ppl whos gonna get it. I'm callin mf's out. I'm bout to name names and all that shit and Def Jam is on the list. Its time that ppl look at what they doin to the kids.They been corrupting the youth way too long. I'm a product of it and so is everybody else. We never knew any fuckin better cause we had the shit crammed down our throats. If you tired of being brainwashed then you will stand up right now to and help with the cause. I'm gonna help organize things to turn the media around and help save the kids. Its gonna take years but its gonna be the biggest most positve revolt that ever showed outcome. I just figured it all out today. Its always been there but there was clouds. not no more. It aint that we gotta censor ourselves. Its gonna be pretty ugly at first but in the end its gonna be beautiful. Life is about progress. We only goin backwards and whats fucked up is that we have technology that was handed to us from outside sources and we still bein fucked up. I dont want it to be like in my sig. Thats whats gonna happen all over if we keep letting it go on. I aint gonna look the other way while the media controls and influences not only myself but my son and others family to be monsters. Fuck death. Its all about life. Everything that the media controls us with and entertains or stimulates us with results in death. Fuck that. Yes, its true, we all die at one point or another. There is something greater though. All throughout recorded music there has been a vibration of the message of something greater. Lets bring it. Lets get this done. For better times. Better times.

mad respect you just got from me. just the fact that "coke rap" is a common term should show people what the fuck is up. the American Dream, no matter black, white, latino, etc. now is to be rich, ballin', spending $ on worthless diamonds, etc. The Dream was always about gettin money, i know that. it's just that it seems now that if you didn't get it through sellin dope and pushin drugs on the youth of every inner city, you have no cred. how fuct is that? the sooner people realize that 50, Jay, Wu, etc. are companies here to get your money however they know how, the better.

Just checked the track....it sucks....and I like Jay-Z. Damn. Just Blaze is biting some Madlib shit too with those drum rolls and shit. If you want drums, get a motherfucker like me to rip em instaed of poorly chopping up samples of real drummers. Jay and Just didn't cut it on this one.

yea it doesn't sound like this is gonna be the final track, it sounds like he starts freeing halfway through at least, lyrically it's far from impressive, and this did leak not on purpose....hova is known for just going in the booth with nothing pre-written and he begins working once hes in the booth and with beat. so that could just be one of the many cuts they prolly gotta do to get the track done. but the beat i fucking LOVE and need that instrumental

your wrong,


regardless of what people want to think, if they like what they hear the person making it is irrelevant.

despite what your sort may think, people dont just think "i like this track, but since its a certain person i'll pretend to myself that its not good".

there should be a word for back packer opposites...maybe its dick rider i dunno...
