Fall Out Boy speak about Jay-Z collaboration

Writers' block prevented emo-hop link- up

Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump has revealed details of the mooted collaboration with Jay-Z that didn’t happen.

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.’”

Jay-Z still made a guest a guest appearance on Fall Out Boy’s ’Infinity On High’ album track ’Thriller’.
