Jay Z turned 44 with a flurry of activity yesterday (Dec. 4). He adopted a vegan diet and released a new remix for the Magna Carta Holy Grail track “Tom Ford” featuring a never-before-heard verse from the late rapper Pimp C.

Listen to remix below via In Flex We Trust.

The timing is significant, as December 4 also marked the sixth anniversary of Pimp C’s death. The rapper, formerly of the group UGK, died in 2007 from an overdose of promethazine and codeine complicated by sleep apnea.

Jay Z fans will best remember Pimp C, and fellow UGK rapper Bun B, from his guest appearance on Jay Z’s 1999 hit, “Big Pimpin’.”

In addition to the “Tom Ford” remix, Jay Z also used his 44th birthday to personally rank his discography, from best to worst.

On a blog post entitled “The Scorecard,” the rapper ranked his 1996 debut, Reasonable Doubt, as his best album, citing it as a classic. The Blueprint, The Black Album and Vol. 2 took spots 2-4, with each also receiving the classic rating from their creator.

At the bottom of the list are The Blueprint 2 (“too many songs”) and the somewhat infamous Kingdom Come taking the last slot, which Jay Z characterizes as “first game back, don’t shoot me,” in reference to it following what had been originally deemed his “last” full length, The Black Album.
