The album has been a long time coming and Jay-Z admitted to MTV News that the LP is actually on its third iteration.
He said he and Kanye were looking to make a grandiose project with elaborate songs, but they felt that doing so would take away from its enjoyment.
"It's just so big and so much, you don't want that sh-- screaming in your house," Jay-Z said, referring to their early single, "H.A.M." "If we don't make records that we like and represent the culture, we would be over."
The collabo finally coming out.
