Jay-Z’s been the most consistent hit-maker in hip-hop for over a decade now. Through retirements and comebacks, Jay is still making music and is slated to drop three more albums over the next ten years through Roc Nation. According to Timbaland, he’ll be the sole producer on Jay’s upcoming project, and he believes he can bring Jay an entire album of “Big Pimpin”-esque tracks. Timbo also told MTV, “He wants me to do the whole thing this time around. I’mma make it a classic too. You better believe it.” Though some die-hard fans of Jay’s may be a little hesitant of the collaboration and would rather hear 9th Wonder or Pharrell for an entire album, they can rest assured Jay has always had a great ear for production.
The album won’t be released until at least the 4th quarter, according to Timbo, so while you wait check out the throwback video for “Big Pimpin.”
