The track appears to be a letter to the 47-year-old hip-hop legend's father filled with lyrics he's never brought up before.

He raps: "Letter to my dad that I never wrote/Speeches I prepared that I never spoke/Words on a paper that I never read/Prose is never penned, they stayed in my head (sic)"

The movie is reportedly set to be released through TIDAL only via a partnership with Sprint.

The album couldn't come at a more fitting time with Jay welcoming twins into the world over the weekend with his wife Beyonce Knowles, 35, whom he also has five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with.
