In this interview with DJ Semtex Jay-Z comments on his use of “new producers” on previous projects and the hopes of finding one for the Blueprint 3.
I can personally name a few he should holla at but we’ll see how it plays out.
Production-wise, it sounds like the only beatmaker who’s secured a spot on there is Kanye because even Timbaland sounded uncertain. He said he spoke to Just Blaze last week, hopefully that’ll work out. Swizz Beats will possibly be on there and he said that he’s trying to work with Chase N Status of the UK.
