    As we all know by now, Jay-Z will be making more albums and touring as he recently signed a $150 million dollar contract with live Nation. Now news about Jigga's new album is starting to come out. Recently Timbaland told MTV news that "He wants me to do the whole thing this time around," continuing "I'mma make it a classic too. You better believe it. It'll be a monster! I always say this: You get a first single from me, I'mma get you up to gold. And it's hard to get you up to gold in this day [and age]."

    Of Jay-Z continuing to make music, Timbo says "Jay should never chill," continuing "…Jay-Z does it for the love. That's different. When somebody does it for the love, you don't stop. He has everything, but he's still current." When it comes to the new album Timbaland wants to lock in several months to make the album saying "We wanna go to the world," he added. "The world is 'Big Pimpin'.' 'Big Pimpin' ' is an international hit, so we wanna do 10 of those." finishing up by saying "The Jay-Z album is gonna be phenomenal. You know why? We don't care. We're doing great music just to do it. We doing it for our fans who love us to say we ain't quit. I'm doing it 'cause that's my homeboy."
