Jay-Z Denies New Disc Entirely Produced By Timbaland

Jay-Z Denies New Disc Entirely Produced By Timbaland, “If Kanye West Makes 10 Great Tracks Then He Produces The Album”

Jay-Z recently spoke up about his new album; denying claims by longtime collaborator Timbaland that the Virgina native will be responsible for producing the entire project.

“You know I love Timbaland, he is like a brother to me, but until the music is done it’s premature,” Jay explained to Rolling Stone. “I’m a person that works off music.”

Continuing to break-down overall production for the follow-up to his certified platinum American Gangster, Jay added that the credit could go to whoever makes the best sounding beats.

“If Timbaland makes 10 great tracks then he produces the album,” he said. “If Kanye West makes 10 great tracks then he produces the album; if he makes three, I’ll take three. I let the music dictate the direction.”

Switching gears to talk about his recent performance at the Pemberton Festival in Canada, Jay spoke on some of his crowd-pleasing skills during his live show.

“I change things up, I change ‘Encore,’ I’ll play the Linkin Park version,” he continued. “I have some other tricks, I play to the audience, I really want people to thoroughly enjoy it.”

Jay made headlines earlier this year after signing a $150 million deal with concert promoter Live Nation.

(sohh)

even bp2 wasnt bad. if it was 1 disc itd be near classic

y'all didnt like "American Gangster?" dope ass album imo.
if any other artist would have named their album and dropped right as a super popular movie was about to drop they woulda caught so much flack, dude was washed and new he needed a gimmick to sell his shit

but that was the point... it was a back to basics for jay. back to the coke rap/mafiaso shit that he stopped doing. plus the concept of using scenes/themes from the movie and relating them right into the music.

I actually didnt like the album too much, but I don't see it as a marketing strategy

How is The Black Album a classic? The production is all over the place and Jay-Z actually managed to pick a wack beat from DJ Quik.

i likes it  :laugh:

prelude, show me what you got, beach chair, lost ones, minority report, 30 something...

on second thought, its not better than bp2, but my list is more about the feelings and good times I can associate with each album, really.

I didn't really like ag all that much, besides ignorant shit (which is just a black album leftover)

and vol 3 is TRASH. big pimpin + filler

Thank god. 2-3 beats from Timbo are OK but I don´t need a whole record full of his shit. Hope Jigga will get some instrumentals from Kanye, missed his productions on "American Gangster" a bit
