Now that Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaboration “Watch the Throne” is gearing up for a late summer release, Hov is trying to keep the creativity flowing as he works on another album.
The rapper, who last released “The Blueprint 3” in 2009, tells MTV that he’s already two tracks in on the new project, which he says are the best first two songs he’s ever done for a record.
Lest he lose his inspiration, Jay-Z says he’s got four other ideas rolling around as well.
"I know exactly the tone and the whole feel of the album," he says, although he doesn't hint as to what that tone might be. "I think when you experience creativity, you should get it out as much as possible."
“Watch the Throne” is expected to arrive August 2.
