    Hov cover is the worst of the lot, the rest are all classic/iconic photos especially the Marvin Gaye and Ali ones. Bad choice for Jay, should have used a Blueprint era photo

    mtv news- new jay album

    Once his current string of performances is behind him, Jay is hoping to lock in on the production of his next album.

    “Well, after the tour, I’m going back home and we’ll look at it and see if I can start a project this year,” he said. “I would love to do it, to be honest with you. It would be a great thing to do when I come home from tour, but it’s vibe. I can’t say, ‘On this date this is going to happen.’ If I get home and the vibe is right, it’ll happen. If not, then top of next year.”

    Although Jay has been rumored to have already started recording (producer Swizz Beatz told MTV News a few weeks ago he gave Hov some incredible tracks), the Brooklyn King stressed that he hasn’t officially gone in on an album. He does seem to have everything already mapped out however.

    “I can’t give you the concepts or themes, but I’ve got a very clear direction of where I want to go with this one, and we’ll see how it works.”

    Obama cover>Hov cover by far

    Jay look awkward on that cover. Come on jay, I know your suit game usually on point.

  20. eskay Says:

    if it was just the Jay cover nobody would be saying it was wack. you fucking guys are so transparent.

  21. FuckUPayMe618 Says:

    Shouldn’t jay be the cover of national geographic?

  22. eskay Says:

    ^*chuckle*

  23. Paperstacker Says:

    Besides nigga posting shit from mtv news of all places. Like Es wouldn’t have posted that shit days ago if there was some truth to it. Album is still in the brainstorm stage if anything at this point. Which basically means it’s nothing but a thought.

  24. Paperstacker Says:

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    lol.. Nah but the Jay rolling stone cover is the truth though.

    Trust Jay going drop an album this year, atleast to fullfill his def jam requirements this year with the final album, so he can move on to the live nation deal next year..hate or love it, theres going to be atleast 4 more jay albums,

  28. Iceberg slim Says:

    I guess niggas expect me to post a comment on gods/ann jones son signing with fila

  29. FuckUPayMe618 Says:

    Jay-z washed up. I dont really care to hear a jay-z album anymore. Dude don’t give a fuck about rap no more. His bars been lacking for atleast 4years

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    No shit, like anyone wasn’t expecting that. The rap game needs more hov albums, as long as they aren’t garbage like kingdom come then it’s a good time to look forward to.

  31. FuckUPayMe618 Says:

    I knew it was over for jay when he couldn’t ether Cam and Jimmy
