Jay-Z's new album set to feature Odd Future's Frank Ocean
Jigga man is already looking past the release of his joint album with Kanye West
The Jigga man has already completed two songs and has four concepts in mind for the follow-up to 2009's 'The Blueprint 3', according to Billboard.com.
The hip-hop star apparently wants to capitalise on the burst of inspiration he has enjoyed while working on his joint album with Kanye West, 'Watch The Throne'.
The much-delayed LP is reportedly being released on August 2 after previously being rumoured to be hitting shelves on American Independence Day (July 4) and in March and January.
The first single from the record, 'HAM', was released online earlier this year.
Earlier this month, the rappers revealed the artwork for the LP, which was designed by Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci.
Production credits on the album name West, Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, No ID and Lex Luger as all having a hand in the album.
Beyonce is also listed as contributing guest vocals on a song called 'Lift Off' along with Bruno Mars.
Other reported song titles include 'Murder To Excellence', 'Illest Motherfucker Alive' and 'Living So Italian'.
