According to AllHipHop, guess who might be preparing us for a new solo album in 2013? None other than Jay-Z. It’s been four summers almost since Blueprint 3 landed on retailers doorsteps and he hasn’t been spotted looking like a hobo (his mystical “grow the hair out before the album drops” look) but from what Illseed is reporting, we could be in for one long summer or winter.

Jay is using this tour with Justin Timberlake to set up the new album. I would have expected him to drop it before a major tour but Jay knows what Jay is doing. As for the music, I heard Jay is talking greasy again! I guess he can afford to do that, since he’s still on the court as a starter. Lots of new bucks coming in the game. Apparently, he’s recorded with one of them already.
