Jay-Z has revealed details of his highly anticipated Blueprint 3 album- which is released on September 11.
In an interview with Reuters he confirmed that Rihanna, indie boys MGMT, Mr Hudson, Kid Cudi and Drake will all appear on tracks.
Of the album- which will be released 8 years after the original Blueprint- Jigga told Reuters:
"This being the end of the trilogy, I wanted to bring it full circle. The first Blueprint was based on soul samples and more of a place where I came from and the records I listened to growing up with my mom and pop.
He said: “This Blueprint, I liken it to a new classic, simply because we -- Usher, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, myself -- are becoming the people that we looked up to musically growing up, like Marvin Gaye and Frank Sinatra.”
Jay also revealed that despite being a lover of the audio technique it was Kanye West who inspired current single Death Of Autotune.
The rapper explained: “When he heard the beat he said, 'Man, this is just so hard! This has to be against everything. No Auto-Tune. None of that type of stuff!”
The Roc added: “In hip-hop our job is, once a trend becomes a gimmick, to get rid of it. We've done that since the beginning of time.”
Bring on Blueprint 3!
