Jay-Z at work on new solo album

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.

    I am Doris,from what I can read. It has been sad news and scam to everyone about Voodoo casters or so. But to me they are so real cause one worked for me not quite two weeks. I traveled down to where his shrine his and we both did the ritual and sacrifice. and now me and my ex are living very ok now.I don't know about you but Voodoo is real;love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,diabetic voodoo,hypertensive voodoo,high cholesterol voodoo,Trouble in marriage,Barrenness(need a child),Luck, Money Spells,it's all he does. I used my money to purchase everything he used he never collected a dime from. He told me I can repay him anytime with anything from my heart. Now I don't know how to do that. If you can help or you need his help write him on (nativedoctor101@live.com) Thank you.

      If books were real entertainment, they'd have them on tv. You're retarded. Poetry is art and rap is poetry put to music. The subject hardly matters. I've read poems about everything from giant cats to roadkill, and Shakespeare invented the word puke in the same play his lead male character mentioned he'd rather get down on his knees and service the King than to perform for him.

      An artist's creation is his own interpretation, and the only way it becomes validated as true art outside of his perception is in terms of sales. And rap sells more records than ever genre except rock. So you're a failure, even at having an opinion.

      The Pope wins again.

      Man, rapping is NOT about "having beef" or any other kind of dinner meat. It's about rhyming words in ways that are unique, poetic, clever, intelligent, evoke imagination, etc. "Beef" is just the result of people like you pretending something irrelevant matters, and then insulting someone else because of it. Tons of great rappers don't ever beef with anyone. Lauryn Hill, Common, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Immortal Technique.

      And like I said earlier, Eminem's job at one point was battling rappers like Tupac and Biggie while he was on the radio. It's called the Freestyle Show buddy.

    Instead of fussing over best hip-hop artists of all time, why not focus on what the country needs. GOP frontrunners are signing off on pledges saying that slavery presented a better family structure for black children than in today's society. The republicans refuse toget rid of Bush Jr. tax cuts because it would take away from them, and our government as a whole is in a crisis to not only the consumer, but to China, a country that has a history of oppression, and one that is thirsty for "revenge". Sure speaking your mind is wonderful, but right now your thoughts are directed at the wrong thing. And yes, I am a minority.

      Hahaha. Yelawolf? Best white rapper? You obviously missed out on listening to his new cd Trunk Muzik. It sports such CLASSIC hits as Daddy's Lambo and Box Chevy. That entire cd had maybe 3 good songs and I only remember Billy Crystal and Pop the Trunk.

      Yelawolf is the white Soulja Boy dude. All his songs are dance/club music. And the rhymes are usually weak. I don't think Eminem's the best rapper, but he IS the best white rapper. Go check out the Freestyle Show he had when he was a DJ on the radio. He battled Biggie AND Tupac during his career there and survived. And way more rappers.

      As for other white rappers better than Yelawolf... there's Aesop Rock, Copywrite, and Vinnie Paz from Jedi Mind Tricks. You fail.

    JayZ has A. Stolen from the Notorious BIG and then gone on to say he's better than him. B. ONLY GOTTEN THIS FAR BECAUSE NAS TOOK TIME OFF TO TAKE CARE OF HIS MOTHER. C. Retired how many times? If he's so "rich", then why does he have to push horrid albums like colaborations with Linkin Park? And to everybody using the word "hater":you just sound ignorant and unable to look up a more invigorating word in the thesaurus. Jay Z is fake. He didn't "slang" on the corner, he gave Puff Daddy astonishing head. Big pimpin was the only thing decent he's done, and thats nothing without Bun B on the track. Keep D ridin' an Uncle Tom guys 🙂

    • The Pope From TV

      Nas was nice enough to take care of his mom but why does Kelis keep suing him for more child support? Nas is better rapper but him taking time off has nothing to do with Jay-Z's career. Jay-Z made his own way. The guy release at least 13-14 songs almost every year since 2002. And before that his mixtapes, Reasonable Doubt, etc all had near 20 tracks and very few interludes. Anyone who wants to claim Jay-Z has stolen about 200 different songs feel free to quote them all or step back and realize he's got talent.

      He is "so rich". He didn't have to push the collab album with Linkin Park. That cd came out when Linkin Park was still new. And before that the last time a rapper collaborated with a rock band was probably Aerosmith and Run DMC. I'm not defending the sound. I don't need to. The man did something different. Name some other rappers who collaborated with rock bands back around 2000.

      And honestly if you think Big Pimpin was his best song, go back to listening to your Mary Poppins soundtrack. Like someone said earlier, The Black Album was pure genius, and Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint 2, and Hard Knock Life Vol. 2 are all classic albums. Try listening to Moment of Clarity or My 1st Song.

      Jay-Z isn't in my top 10 either but NO rapper has accomplished what he has. Nas has 4 classic albums too but never used his brain to make enough money to buy a friggin jet and a basketball team (or pay child support).

      P.S. MF Doom and Aesop Rock are my favorites. Love 'em.

    It's great that he still wants to rap and he surely still has the ability, but for me, the albums that he puts out at this point look more like victory laps. I'm sure that creativity is difficult for him to come by at this point. He's pretty much accomplished everything by now. I'll still give it a listen, though.

    If you're black you have to respect the man jay-z. Even if you don't like his music. Rather he did it conciously or not he made corporate America respect a hustlers mind. Not just as a rapper, but as a business MOGUL. Part owner of the Nets, Roc Nation, rocawear, i want even continue... Do you know how hard and rare it is to have a one-on-one sit down with Warren Buffet? Jigga did it. Trust me this guy opened up a lot of doors for us even if you don't see it yet, you will....and your kids will...and they're kids will.

    "A wise man told me don't argue with fools, cause people from a distance can't tell who is who..". No point in stating the obvious of what Jay is; not only to rap, but music as a whole. How many other artists have released 10+ albums and had them all go plat. Plus, will probably reach billionaire status in his lifetime. Enough said. Haters are necessary though, "and all you other cats throwing shots at Jigga, you only get half a bar..." (Somebody finish the line for me)

      It’s unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding your website. For the past 6 months, I have been so depressed after losing my fiancé to another woman. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I’d have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn’t know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Dr obodo has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Dr obod most powerful spells and I was relieved right away that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders and I am now back with my fiancé and my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery. Dr obodo I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out.you reach on dr email ;templeofanswer@hotmail.co.uk

    All b.s. aside, S. Carter is not only a multi talent artist, he's a Icon, compared to the likes of M.J. Beatles, Elton John, etc. Our problem n the Hip hop world is that we got the hatin *** Goons out here not wanting to respect the greatness n hustle that this man has brought to our generation n others to come, if I was a Rapper n I was working on my 11th Solo album, hmmm that says alot about where I stand, but untill we learn what "Hip hop" really is, as some of you stated, leave the computers alone n get out ya fellings calling another grown ass man Gay Z" Thank you -God Father of Hip Hop.

    All these haters are trippin. Kourtry blak I dont know if your jealous or just plain ignorant but I seriously doubt Jay Z stole a thing from you. The man went from slanging on the corner to CEO of Def Jam. If you dont like his music you still have to respect his hustle. Cant wait to buy the next cd, keep it up Hove.
