Kanye West beats Timbaland to produce new Jay-Z album
Kanye West is now set to produce the whole of Jay-Z’s forthcoming album, ‘Blueprint 3’.
It has been claimed by influential DJ Mick Boogie that the rapper-producer has beaten Timbaland to the roll.
“Kanye will indeed be producing most, if not all, of the album,” Boogie wrote on his blog. “Remember back in the day when an artist would do a whole album with one producer for cohesiveness? Think classic or with Primo…and fast forward it to 2008.”
Timbaland had originally stated he would produce the album in its entirety, although Jay-Z later played down his involvement in the project.
Boogie also revealed that ‘Jockin’, the recently performed Noel Gallagher-baiting track, is likely to be leaked onto the net by Jay-Z shortly.
“Jay will be leaking the finished version of ‘Jockin’ as soon as he adds a new third verse to the song,” he wrote.
‘Blueprint 3’ is rumoured to be set for release in December
