Jay-Z confirmed rumors that he is busy at work on his 11th album this week, according to âJiggaâ his new album will be titled âThe Blueprint 3.â According to Billboard, Kanye West has been working with Jay-Z for what will be his last album on Def Jam and 11th album overall. Wednesday, the MC appeared as a guest during Kanye West’s Glow in the Dark concert at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Amidst performing, West asked the audience if he could play a few beats that he recorded while in Hawaii recently, including a song tentatively called “Jockin’ Jay-Z.” As the track played, Jay-Z himself crossed the stage and began rapping, “That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar // somebody shoulda told him I’m a f*cking rock star / today is gonna be the day that I’m gonna throw it back to you.” He was referencing his cover of Oasis’ “Wonderwall” at the recent Glastonbury Festival, which drew a mixed response. According to longtime friend and Roc-A-Fella artist Memphis Bleek, “Jockin’ Jay-Z” is only one of many gems that West has crafted for the MC. Bleek went on to say that Jayâs upcoming album will be a masterpiece âKanye gave him some beats where I told Jay that I’m hating on him for having them. The beats are like new rhythms with old drums. Just picture Jay-Z having four records like ‘Encore.'” A release date has not been set for the project, Jay-Zâs last album âAmerican Gangsterâ was released in November of 2007.
