Jay Z's New Album In Stores September 18th

Jay-Z's latest effort

The Blueprint is set to hit stores on September

18th and is said to feature no guest appearances, just

Jay Hova himself. This upcoming one man show is unlike

last year's "The Dynasty, Roc La Familia" where

Jay handed the mic over to his Rocafella sidekicks Beanie

Sigel and Memphis Bleek to shine along Jay on the LP.

The new album will feature songs Jay wrote during his

"creative burst" when he banged out 9 songs

in merely two weeks.

As the album's

first track "H to the Izzo" continues to get

adds on various radio stations throughout the U.S., Jay-Z

is currently in Los Angeles, California filming the video

for the single.

Although the Jiggaman uses the softer Jackson 5 sample

"I Want You Back" on the track, on the latest

DJ Envy mixtape, Jay himself warns that the new album

has "all questions answered" and "the boy

is gonna handle his business, TRUST ME". He will

most likely be addressing matters concerning all of the

beef, true or not, that has had Young Hova's name involved

in it in the past months.

Jay-Z is also

up for three Source Awards for Album of the Year, Artist

of the Year, and Lyricist of the Year. After release of

the album, Jay has a theatre tour in mind hopefully coming

to a city near you.
