Although no official release date has been set for Jay-Z’s anticipated new album The Blueprint 3, producer Kanye West has stated that he expects the album to drop in February 2009.
The album will be Jay-Z’s final record for Def Jam before he begins his new mega-contract with Live Nation.
In a teleconference, Ye explained that him and Jay almost finished the album before his own 808s and Heartbreak disc.
“I’m constantly making music,” Ye said. “We almost finished with Jay album. We was almost finished before I even dropped my album.”
Despite Def Jam being unwilling to offer a definite release date or rough projection for his final required project on the label, Ye wasted no timing in revealing the album’s due date in addition to other projects he’s been working on.
“Jay album is coming in February,” he explained.
