Jay-Z has confirmed that the image leaked earlier this week is the artwork for his Blueprint 3 album.
He told MTV News in the US: “It's the album cover,” before explaining the significance of the white instruments.
“These things are like the forgotten pieces in hip-hop," Jay explained. "It's still about music. It's not about radio, making gimmicks — it's still about making music.
He continued: “The three stripes that everybody is asking about is made from the original [number] three. The first three they made on the wall was someone carving. If you look at [the number] 3, all they did was connect lines.
“The whole thing about this album, how I approached it, is that I wanted to make a new classic to start that all over again — to go back to making classic albums like the ones we grew up listening to."
Blueprint 3 will be released next month.
In other news Jigga recently announced that he will write a book called Decoded. And despite speculation Beyonce has said it will not spill secrets about their marriage.
She told TV show Extra: “It is never going to happen.”
