Just Blaze Drops Two Unreleased Beats: Moleskin Conclusion & Miracle

Just Blaze has let loose two unreleased beats from his vault. Before today, only the ears of Jay-Z, Jeezy, and Chris Brown had heard "Miracle," a synth-oriented, nostalgic ’90s beat. Speaking on "Miracle," Just Blaze notes, "Everyone who heard it thought it was amazing but couldn’t come up with a song to it [laughs]. Understandable though. There’s a lot going on. I may do this more often. Shouts out to Canei on the godly piano riffs that are different each time throughout the entire track. If you’re going to attempt to rap on it, be respectful and rap good.” Both instrumentals have been provided for your listening pleasure. You can read more about how "Miracle" came to be left untouched over at HYPETRAK.
