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.
