Jay-Z Lays Down Track At Luton Studio
Staff at community facility stunned to get call from Jigga's people...
Staff at a recording studio in Luton are reported to have been stunned to learn that they'd be getting a visit from none other than the CEO of hip-hop himself,Jay-Z.
Jigga is claimed by The Sun to have booked a recording session at the Koolworld studio in the less-than glamorous Bedfordshire town after discovering that it had the equipment he needed.
The rap megastar is in the UK at the moment because he is headlining BBC Radio One's Hackney Weekender.
And he was reportedly so impressed with the facilities at the Luton Community Arts Trust-run studio that he immediately booked another session for the following day.
Studio manager Linda Farrell said: "A member of staff got a phone call from one of his people on Friday afternoon and she thought it was someone having a laugh, she only realised when they mentioned his label Def Jam records.
"Apparently this was the only studio in the area that was accessible and had all the equipment he needed.
"Apparently he got a really good recording of one track and was really delighted with it. Hopefully this will bring the studio some kudos."
