By now you’ve surely seen the hype. Online, on social media, posted all over — it’s literally everywhere. I saw it all over the city of Chicago this weekend. But what does it mean? Well, we now know it’s Jay Z’s new album, dropping via Roc Nation on June 30th, exclusively on Tidal and Sprint.
Rumors of the album have been Floating for months now, and insiders pretty much confirmed this was happening a while ago, but last night at the strike of midnight, Roc Nation (formally Rocafella Records) employees sent out an email blast Stamping the album, it’s drop date and some other important info. Twitter went nuts over news that No ID was to produce and executive produce the album in its entirety. Rumor, huh? Some lightweight sleuthing revealed the account who broke the news — the culprit being an LA based director named Chris Black. Not sure if this cat was to be let out of the bag all day way, but either way, No ID has been trending on Twitter all day today.
This comes on the heels of No ID’s announcement of being named Executive VP of Capitol Records. its been a big few weeks for the Chicago native. No ID has yet to confirm , but we are excited to see any news on this subject.
