In a recent interview with Billboard Jiggaman sounds off on his contract expiring with Def Jam, his last album and who got next. Here’s what he had to say about his last album,
Will there be a new Jay-Z album next year?
(Laughs heartily) If I’m inspired. To be honest, I’ve been thinking about that lately. I have one album left on my contract, and then I’ve really come full circle.
This is all hypothetical but I’ve been thinking on the fly: I have one album left, right? If I’m inspired to make that album, then my contract is done and I’m not in the music business anymore as far as being an artist. I can still make music. But how I reach people with that music … I can do anything with it at that point. It’s kind of exciting in a way. I’m not in the music business so I can drop a single every month. Who knows? The possibilities are endless — and without any pressure to sell anything. I could make whatever and do whatever with my music. Maybe the songs would just play in 40/40.
Jay is going to be recording forever. Remember on Reasonable Doubt he said “Minds thinking longevity till I’m seventy”. Well he’s more than half way there, with his old ass.
