Jay-Z starts work on the follow-up to 'The Blueprint 3'
Producer No ID reveals early studio session details
The rapper, who recently teamed up with Kanye West for their collaborative LP 'Watch The Throne', has already made some headway on the follow-up to his 2009 effort 'The Blueprint 3', according to producer No ID.
He played me a couple of things. I gave him some music while we were at the 'Watch The Throne' sessions. But with Jay, you never know what he's really doing, thinking, planning until it's really done. I'm sure he'll make a decision one day to make an album very quickly, like he usually does.
He's one of the best, period. I think he's at a place where he has visions of what he wants to do, and it's not really dependent on any of us. It's dependent on his vision and he's going to do it, [and] hopefully I'll be involved.
Jay-Z and West are currently facing the prospect of legal action over a sample they used on their track 'The Joy'.
The duo used a sample of soul singer Syl Johnson's 'Different Strokes', but according to Johnson's publishers, have done so without his permission or any money changing hands.
