A version of a Jay-Z tune produced by Kanye West seven years ago that was eventually used by J Dilla has finally been unveiled.

Kanye himself has posted a link to the tune on his blog and explains that he initially made the backing track for Jay-Z tune Takeover

Under a picture of former Slum Village man Dilla, Kanye wrote: "Never heard this song 'til now. I made this beat in 2001, we were having problems clearing the Doors sample, so I made this version for Big Bro Hov [Jay-Z]."

The new, apparently untitled song is thought to be appearing on J-Dilla's posthumous album Pay Jay, which is due for release later this year.

Meanwhile, Kanye has shown his support by posting a link to new Codlplay track Violet Hill, which as previously reported by Orange, is currently available to download for free on the band's website.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Kanye worked together on Homecoming, a single from Kanye's 2007 LP, Graduation.
