A few weeks ago, renowned emcee Q-Tip announced his production on Jay’s upcoming solo album.
“You know, I hate to sound self-involved but I feel like I haven’t peaked yet. I have a lot to give still. I still look the part… I still got it. I’m getting ready to work on stuff for Mary J. Blige… Kanye and I are gonna continue to work together. We’re doing some stuff for Jay-Z’s new album that’s coming out in the spring, and then after Jay’s thing I’m gonna start recording my new album…Kanye should be working on that, too.” (XXL Mag)
Last March, Q-Tip said he was hoping to become attached to Jay’s BP3 follow-up.
“I just try to work with people who I admire or whom I think has got it,” he revealed in an interview. “So right now I’m working onNas’ sh*t, about to work with Kanye on his sh*t. Just trying to keep up my momentum. I’m about to work with Talib [Kweli] on his project. I been trying to work with Hova for a while so hopefully he’ll realize the heat I got and come with it [laughs].” (Brooklyn Bodega)
