Video: Jay-Z Says He’s Working On Next Album

via MTV Mixtape Daily:

Blueprint 3 hasn’t even hit stores yet, and Jay-Z told us he’s already working on his next album, which will be his most eclectic piece ever.

“My next album, which I’m working on now — that’s exclusive, no one knows that — is gonna be the album that really … it’s not gonna be a #1 album, let me just say that. That’s where I’m at right now. I wanna make the most experimental album I ever made. But let’s not deal with that yet; I want to deal with The Blueprint 3.”

“I’ve always said I believe in good music and bad music. … I like music. The second Blueprint, the reason it was all over the place is because I like music so much. You have tracks with Lenny Kravitz then Sean Paul. Dr. Dre. It’s all over the place because of my taste in music. I like music.

    i dont know if that’s a good thing (c) Electric Circus

  4. seafood lover Says:

    jay ego is enormous…this nigga..smh. He knows he cant bow out with that piece of shit bp3 so has to go make another piece of shit that might just smell a little better than bp3 and then all the stanleys will praise it as “classic” and then he will have another fake retirement…..this nigga gotta go. FOH

    FOH JAY

  5. 123 Says:

    First time I agree with, Seafood Lover.

  6. cOLD Says:

    the Bp3 vs OB4CL2 fuckery has subsided, thank god.

    ^ I take that back

    … I get what Jay did now… He had to recoupe the 5 millie he spent getting out his contract. “experimental album” this could be bad or good, he might go all the way left.

  7. seafood lover Says:

    why cant this big lipped donkey kong lookin nigga just go buy some more businesses and fade to black? just bounce nigga, you old.

  8. lilslim79 Says:

    Jesus christ workin on next album already, is that saying something about this album. If hes really experimenting with his next album it could either be a total dissaster that could ruin his rap career or be an unbelieve classic but imo nothing will be RD,

    IMO its mediocre its DEFINITLY NOT HIS BEST WORK nor is it his worst album…its better than blueprint 2, kingdome come, and vol 3

    what song was it where pac said “fuck jay z”

  11. cOLD Says:

    “experimental album” (c) Nas

    Nas won.

  12. KzA Says:

    This is all Kanye. All of it. 808s opened the door for every ego-maniac rapper to create their super concept or experimental album. Waynes doing it with Rebirth and here Jay comes with this shit….

    Kanyes fucking wierd, near-homo ass is going to fuck this hip hop shit up. Remember who said it. HE should have just stuck to the production and rap that made him famous years ago..Its only a matter of time until Kanye goes from boundary pushing trendsetter to just plain fuckin wierd, and when he does, everyone followin him is gonna look stupid

  13. *MOOKO* Says:

    nah needs 2 post that interview wit x speakin on jay….since this has been jay right week this week

  14. seafood lover Says:

    Dear jay z,

    go move into the white house and have gay butt sex with your buddy barry.
    and SHUT THE FUCK UP FOREVER.

    I dont wanna see your ugly ass in no movies either. smh @ nas, after ether he shoulda just finised him off wth a nail in the coffin type joint.

    Ok, because no one ever made left field hip hop before Kanye…You right…smh

    BP3 > OBFCL2.

    while rae makes me feeling like cutting up with baking soda in the back cookin, dude is mad played out and i know he isn’t even about that anymore. so after the extreme bangers play out (c) pyrex vision, broken safety, gihad, we will rob you, etcc. it gets really boring. i can sit back on burner and think about jay’s lyrics. they might be a bit more mainstream, but it makes me want to cop BP3 more.

  19. PlugIndustries Says:

    what song was it where pac said “fock jay z”

    “all out” on makevelli 2

    ^dude its an album it doesnt have to reflect his lifestyle… I go to the movies and prefer gangsta flicks, the ones the get it poppin in the opening scenes. I’m bar far no gangsta. Its all based on preference, some niggas like flicks like broke back mountain, or the Love note or extremely boring films with no action. To each his own.

  21. JD Says:

    Um, listen Seafood Lover, why don’t you just die? Your faggot father should have shot his load on your mothers nasty face instead of inside that dirty baggy pussy. Because now we are stuck with you.

  22. cOLD Says:

    Plug your fam Foekist must be caking… He dont post up on nah anymore. that can only mean 2 things. Either he chasing that paper or he dont fuck with rap no more.

  23. KzA Says:

    ^^

    I never said that…but who as big as Kanye ever did it? And he was extremely successful with 808s..Who as big as Kanye ever went that far left and was wildy successful? The only reason these others are tryin it now is becuase Kanye got paid off it, if 808s flopped The Carter 4 would have dropped already.

  24. Rick the New Intern Says:

    oh word up, i just figure i’d throw in my two cents. see what other people thought.

    nas lost tapes > untitled.

  25. cOLD Says:

    inside that dirty baggy pussy.

    ^roffle, some female rapper was dissing niggas, said niggas be having baggy condoms. lol.

  28. Mr. Iceberg Slim Says:

    gets ready for 13 straight number 1 album….

  29. sleep AKA I'M 2 COOL 4 U DUDES 2 RIDICULE Says:

    he signed a 10 album deal with roc nation. you dont expect him to drop albums at 48 do you. so hes gonna drop a album bout every 7/8 months. this album sounds like it will have alot of coldplay, sting clone, and likin park. i’ll buy it.

  30. KzA Says:

    Also, you know this album is pretty much going to sound like an entire album of “ghetto techno”..Probably will have a bunch of indie rock features since hes been talking about them all lately… I’ll be interested to see how closely it follows the new lane Kanyes been openin up..that European techno hip hop sound ish…

    Kinda interesting for the “King of Hip Hop” to follow down one of his proteges lanes…no?

  31. Mr. Iceberg Slim Says:

    How you hate someone’s music but post 5-6 comments about them???

  32. Rick the New Intern Says:

    i hope that album is beach chair x 12. co-sign anyone?

    ^ experimental means to take risk not knowing the outcome. Its that fuckit frame of mind, were you let your creativity shine and the business part of the deal means shit. The nigga could of been doing it, he aint hurting for bread like that. Get some ill beats nigga and shit on tracks relentlessly, this is the artform.

  37. sleep AKA I'M 2 COOL 4 U DUDES 2 RIDICULE Says:

    it said it will be number 1 cause he’s hov. but getting a number 1 album has more to do with you is dropping a album same week as you. chrisette michelle last album was number 1 and she sold 80,000. 50 last album wasnt #1 cause he dropped same week as kanye.

    ^2pac “Let’s be friends” That was a classic line because the song was about bitches, but that’s how pac got down, he’d diss a nigga on a track with mary mary and kirk franklin, lol

    ===============================================
    Word!

    Hip-hop cats got some serious short-term memory issues.
    Kanye ain’t “invent” shit.

  60. seafood lover Says:

    iceberg slim must be the nigga jay z …swear to god.

    die in a hole and eat diarhhea

  61. seafood lover Says:

    pac had soul, jay z never had that he just sounded like some ugly nigga talkin over a beat all bored and shit.

  62. hater of haterz Says:

    first lets say that hip hop fusion albums are nothing new so get off Kanye’s back. Second i mean really i feel what Jay is saying if you want the old stuff just go buy it who cares if you don’t like it don’t listen and move on. i bet half the dudes in here that are hating haven’t really listened to the album, and i bet half the dudes that love OBFCL 2 haven’t really listened to that either. they just hate bp3 cuz its poplular, i mean really what are you all bumping besides raekwon? souljah boy? new boys? gucci mane, i mean tell us whats hot right now. its so easy to hate jayz you gotta love’em cuz he has inspired you all to hate him this much to call him ugly (commenting on a mans looks) and hate his music and art form i mean really get a life go cook some baking soda and worship raekwon if it means that much to you and see how far you get in life.

  63. hater of haterz Says:

    and for the record sonically BP3 is far ahead of OBFCL 2. beats on raes album is nice for sure but sonically jigga dropped another blueprint. I promise you a year from now you all gonna say his next album isn’t as good as BP3…smh

  64. wow Says:

    next album > BP3

    if he got dre to do the beats, it would be fire

    next album is gonna be dope i bet

  65. mie Says:

    id like to see jay-z make another album like american gangster, but with better harder production.
