Jay-Z Scoops Emmy Award
Jay-Z is no stranger to winning awards. However, Jigga is used to scooping gongs at music industry bashes rather than seeing his music honoured at award ceremonies that focus on the television industry. All of that changed when it was revealed that Jay-Z’s performance of 'Run This Town' at Super Bowl XLIV had scooped the Brooklyn rapper a prestigious Emmy for the Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition/Direction/Lyrics...
Jigga is currently busy putting the finishing touches to 'Watch The Throne', which is a joint-project with Kanye West. The first single is believed to be a Jeff Bhasker-produced number called 'Lift Off' - which will see Beyoncé and Bruno Mars feature alongside Jay and Kanye. No release dates for either the album or single have been revealed yet.
