A previously unreleased Kanye West track featuring JAY-Z has hit the web, titled “Livin So Italian.” Featuring a prominent sample by legendary Italian singer Andrea Bocelli, the song was first heard at a listening party for Kanye West and JAY-Z’s Watch the Throne but never officially released. Reddit’s HipHopHeads attributes this to the rappers’ teams being unable to clear the sample. Reddit users were also quick to point out that JAY-Z’s verse on “Livin So Italian” was ultimately used on the Magna Carta Holy Grail cut “FuckWitMeYouKnowIGotIt.”

Furthermore, Reddit user Ethere4l claims to be the original leaker and confirms that there is no CD quality version in circulation. However, the user also mentioned that this is half the track with a full 3:06 version coming soon.
