Writers' block prevented emo-hop link- up
Stump was asked to come up with a hook for Jay-Z’s comeback album 2006’s ’Kingdom Come’ but couldn’t.
Stump was invited into the studio, he told Rolling Stone, and he said of the trip: “All of hip-hop showed. Jay walks in with Timbaland, then Swizz Beatz walks in. Beyonce was there.
“I had the worst writer’s block. So I was like, ‘I fucked up the Jay-Z thing.’”
