Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 is Coming and It’s “Phenomenal”

Bossip folk, you know the saying,  “good things come to those who wait.”  Well, we know a lot of you have been waiting on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 and lucky for you, it is supposed to be well worth the wait and more:

“For me, the process of making an album is difficult with so many things going on,” Jay told MTV News backstage at his “Eve of Change” show. “And me, I wanna make it beyond and above. I’m gonna take my time with it. I don’t have any quotas, and that’s a good thing. It may be too freeing. It’s a good thing and a bad thing. You know, I think I need some restrictions. ‘Cause if I had restrictions, I would have done it in three weeks. I would have made what I believe to be a great piece of art.”

According to Kanye West, the album’s rumored sole producer, the music recorded so far for BP3 is “phenomenal.” West spoke with MTV Base in November and reiterated Jay’s claim that the album could have been released. But after the positive feedback for “Jockin’ Jay-Z” and T.I.’s “Swagger Like Us,” Hov decided to keep cooking up tracks.

“We went in, and we [did] the whole album,” West explained. “He wanted to do a few more joints, so he kinda pushed it back. Now we’re gonna go in and just work on some more records. So I got some more stuff to kill it with! I think [Jay pushed the album back because] ‘Swagger’ just did so incredible. We wanted to go up [and make sure] everything was on that level.”

In addition to “Jockin’ Jay-Z” and “Swagger Like Us,” the Jigga Man said his “Notorious” track, “Brooklyn Go Hard,” is also slated for the album.

“I actually recorded a lot of records already,” Jay said. “You know, all those records that leaked [online] were on The Blueprint 3.”

The Blueprint 3 is believed to be Jay-Z’s last contractual album due to Def Jam, his current recording home. The rapper, who served a three-year term as the label’s president, signed a new $150 million contract with Live Nation over 10 years. It remains unclear, though, which company will distribute albums for Jay-Z under the Live Nation deal.

No doubt, Bossip is, but who else out there is checking for Hov’s album when it drops?

    I like Jay Z but he is not the King of rap anymore and there really wasn’t anything phenomenal about his last 2 albums either.

    lol at Bossip not knowing a damn thing about hiphop, American Gangster was a great hiphop album, but i am guessing yall like that shitty ass Lil Wayne music where he uses “like” every second.Thank god for Nas,Jay, and Lupe, because this generation lost!

  • A.G

    Hi haters…
    Let the man do what he do best. “Brooklyn go hard” was a good song, and the word play on “My presiden is Black” is incredible… You know what, even if BP3 isn’t that good, at least it’s gonna bring the best out of other rappers, ’cause he’s the supreme competition, and that’s good for hip-hop! But really, his statments are much more clever than all those rap cats talking about money, b*tches, cars, jewlery, money, cars, b*tches, money, coke, jewlery… rap right now is so crap!

  • A.G

    You do realize that Jay along with Kanye,Lil Wayne, and 50 were the last rappers to go platinum right. Now think about what you just said, Jays consistency > flash in the pants rappers (Lil wayne, soulja boy,etc).

    PS American Gangster sold close to 500,000 in his first week and that’s without some bullshit single like Elevator,Lollipop,etc.

    I hope don’t noboy buy this crap, if it’s the same mess him and Jeezy was doing!!!!
