Jay-Z became one of the first ones to rile up his fans by releasing the track list for his “upcoming” album called Ascension. While Jay-Z didn’t even post the joke, it was Jay’s African fans who had created the heart-wrenching rumor which deeply hurt the fans.

Jay-Z’s African fans even listed a few artists that were going to be featured on the fake album such as African artists Sarkodie, Nasty C, Femi Kuti as well as worldwide sensations such as Beyoncé, H.E.R., and Rick Ross.
