Swizz Beatz isn’t the first producer to hint at a new release from the ’99 Problems’ superstar, Zaytoven and Mike Will Made-It have also recently made reference to working alongside Jay Z, Stereogum reports.

Jay Z made a return to music last month with a guest verse on Frank Ocean‘s latest surprise single ‘Biking’, which also features Tyler, the Creator.

Jay Z’s last album was ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’, released in 2013.

The rapper removed all his music from Spotify last month, presumably due to his ties to Tidal. More recently, Jay Z was sued over a series of baseball caps featuring his former Roc Nation label’s logo.
