Young Guru Says Jay-Z Is 4 Songs Deep Into Next Solo Album
Continuing his talk with Complex, Young Guru reveals 15 things you didn’t know about Jay-Z, all of which are very interesting. I recommend you check the article out. Apparently, Jay religiously watches YouTube freestyles, and L.A. Reid forced him to rush Kingdom Come. Anyways, Guru also revealed that Jigga is already 4 songs deep into his next album, but work has stopped since the birth of B.I.C.
There are maybe four songs so far and most of them are spill over. I don’t wanna say spill-over like they’re throw-aways from Watch The Throne. It’s an incredible beat coming on and Jay being like, ‘No that’s for my album. Hold that one, it’s for me.’ So the ones that were made so far, the beats were made during the Watch The Throne time.
“Now we’re adding on to it, but we haven’t gone back in. We had all this touring stuff. It was the end of the year and we were doing shows. Then the baby came. We literally went in to do the song for Blue Ivy and he hasn’t been back since. He’s definitely enjoying daddy mode right now.”
