J-Roc Drops Hints About Jay-Z’s Next Album


Some of the best tracks on Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail were also the shortest.

Producer J-Roc says “Versus,” which runs just over 50 seconds, may be expanded to a full song on the next Jay-Z album.

Roc told XXL that a longer version of the track may be on Jay’s next offering.

“I’m givin’ a little hint: that’s what those [tracks] are, just little hints. He has so many great tracks, he couldn’t just put them all on there, so we were like, this is what we’ll do, we’ll just give them a little hint. So later when they hear it again, they’ll be like, “Oh shit, this is what it’s supposed to be,” you know what I mean? So he’s a clever guy.”

That’s a huge hint – if some of those mini-tracks, like “Versus” and “Beach Is Better” are just previews, then the next Jay-Z album could be another smash.
