Jay-Z Talks Collab Album W/ Beyonce, Dame Dash, Obama Texts + More

(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z has not done a radio interview in over two years but decided to stop by his good friend Angie Martinez’s show on Hot 97 to discuss everything from Magna Carta Holy Grail to Blue Ivy’s rhythm and more.

According to Jay-Z, the innovative promotion for Magna Carta Holy Grail will not stop with The White Stripes guitarist Jack White providing a limited edition vinyl for the song “Open Letter”. The vinyl will be shaped as a card and able to be played as vinyl. He also reveals that he will release video footage of studio sessions for his new album, including the recording of “BBC” which he says consisted of all the featured artists in the studio at the same time.

When asked if it was really him tweeting to fans during yesterday’s impromptu Q&A on Twitter, the 17 year veteran coyly responded “C’mon, who else can come up with that stuff?”

The most revelatory information in the interview revolved around two collaboration albums Jay-Z has been linked to, Watch The Throne 2 with Kanye West and a Best of Both Worlds album with his wife Beyonce. In regards to bringing back the Best of Both Worlds series this time with Beyonce, Hov flatly denied it will ever happen and alluded to the failed R. Kelly version as a reason why by simply stating, “No way. You saw how that one ended.”

In regards to the follow up to his successful Watch The Throne album with Kanye, one half of The Throne stuttered through his initial response before saying there will be another Watch The Throne album “hopefully”.

Check out the full interview below after a few interesting additional notes from the interview:

Jay-Z on the news

“It’s strange to see everybody’s agenda. CNN is like TMZ.”

Jay-Z on Obama during 2nd Election

“When he was getting elected the second time he was like ‘Hey, fourth quarter, just give me the ball.”

    Any Jay-Z after The Black Album was wack.

    • Jared

      I agree with the exception of “American Gangster”

      • American Gangster was one of his best, especially after The Blueprint era!

    • American Gangster, WTT, and this album are all good albums IMO

    • Doc Franchise

      Ive been saying the same thing….WTT is Kanyes brainchild and American Gangster has a few jewels but overall the production and sound design sounded incomplete to me

    • therealest1

      I see Jay-Z really has a lot of dick riders and has them drinking that Jim Jones (cult leader) type Flavor Aid.

        Never assume that because a man has no eyes, he cannot see,
        Close your eyes. What do you hear?
        -Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.
        -Master Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
        -Caine: No.
        -Master Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?
        -Caine: Old Man, how is it that you hear these things?
        -Master Po: Young Man, how is it that you do not?

      • brev87

        MJ was good on the Wizards, but he wasn’t as good as when he was on the Bulls. Get it? Or is that over your head?

  • I WILL BITE YOU!!

    so… dame dash?

  • Whatwhat

    Is dame dash a super secret name for Kanye West or are you as bad summing up your writing as we all assume.

    ha ha since i dont know how long everytime an hot97 vlog audio etc comes out its either featuring ciph and rosenberg or oldman ebro and used to be kayfox …… jayz comes to the station and ms martinez gets the interview ha ha why not rosenberg and where was ebro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sn i sort of wish they would of did the interview tho it was nice hearing angela but i cant help but to think ciph, rosen and ebro would of asked better questions …………………………………..

  • Negro Peligro

    Yo all I got to say is Jay Z album should be Yeezus B side. B is for Big Brotha that stole not only the style, topics, but even the name of the album are on the same level. I love Jay but he straight ripped off Yeezus. Yeezus even sound better soniclly and Jays stuff sounds watered down next to it. I’m not a huge fan of Jay Z on Kanye non Soul Beats. So the fact he went out and got Timbo, Pharrell, and bunch of other producers to basically copy the sound Kanye was doing makes it wack.
