Jay Z is having a big day!
Earlier today, we learned that he and his wife are expecting twins after Beyoncé made the announcement of Instagram.
His fans have been waiting for some brand new music from the rapper for a while as he teased fans while posing in photos with Rick Ross, Mike Will Made It and more.
Another producer that got a chance to take a photo with Jay Z is Zaytoven. When he met up the Billboard where he spoke about the experience.
What’s so crazy is I always looked at Jay Z and guys on the caliber of Jay Z like they just the big dogs. I didn’t think they listen to my music or even know who I am. I was in L.A. in a meeting with [veteran publishing executive] Big Jon and he was like, ‘Me and Jay was just talking about you.’ So he text him and [Jay Z] said, ‘You have Zaytoven over there? Can he come to the house?’ And I’m like, What? For real?
This is me having no idea that he even cared about my music. First thing [Jay Z] said [to Big Jon], ‘Tell him when he come over, make sure he bring them beats with them strings and pianos in it.’ So that means he’s paying attention to what I’m doing. I feel like I’ve been behind the scenes, making music all this time but I’ve been making it just to satisfy my demographic.
I didn’t know how far it was reaching. So when Jay Z invited me to his house and told me what type of beats he wanted, it opened my mind up to be like, ‘My music is reaching everybody and touching people in a certain way.’ There’s a distinct something when they hear my music. I feel like [the collaboration] is gonna be for both of [our projects]. I know it’s going to be a trophy for me.
We’ve been hearing about a Jay Z album for the past year when he was first featured on the remix of Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s hit single “All The Way Up.”
With new children on the way, we might be hearing this music sooner than later.
