Monumental news from Jay-Z during half time of the Heat/Spurs Finals game: Jay’s long-time rumored new album will be released July 4th. The Samsung commercial announcing the album features producers Rick Rubin, Pharrell and Timbaland, Swizz Beats and others, all rumored to have had a part in the new record. The beat snippets sounded CRAZY. You can also hear Jay say “Turn that up Ye,” hopefully meaning Mr. West contributed to the album as well. Damn Jay, couldn’t let Ye enjoy his baby for at least a full day?! Also, there goes all the buzz around protege J.Cole’s Born Sinner.
