Since Jay Z appeared in multiple features, fans have been clamoring for a new album, but after a photo appeared with the Roc Nation head honcho in Jamaica with Damien Marley, fans think the release is closer than we think.
In an interview with Billboard, Marley seemingly confirmed that Hov is, in fact, working on new music. Marley tells the publication that he gave Hov a “musical tour around Jamaica.”
“We did some work in the studio recently and he wanted to come to Jamaica to get a tour of the place,” Marley tells Billboard over the phone. “He’s been to Jamaica before, but never Kingston. So he wanted to come down to Kingston and asked us if we could have been there to show him around and give him a tour musically, in terms of our history in Kingston.”
Although Marley didn’t give any details on what their collaboration would appear on, he did confirm that he was working with the legendary MC on something.
“Well, I did some work with him for some stuff that he’s working on,” Marley explained. “I’m not really sure of the details of his project in that sense, but we worked on some music together. I’ve been a fan of his music since he came out. We’ve never done any musical work together. So that was a joy to finally work together musically.”
