On the heals of the “We Run This” video additional details have come out about Jay-Z’s anticipated 11th album Blueprint 3, due out September 11th.
Unlike last time, Hov is gracious with the guest appearances with BP3. The album’s tracklisting, revealed by Rap Radar, lists A-Listers such as Alicia Keys, Young Jeezy, Rihanna and Kanye as features. Celebrated newcomers Drake, J. Cole and Kid Cudi also get some much coveted audio real estate as well.
Over half of the project will have a Chicago producer stamp as Kanye West and his mentor No I.D. individually produced or collaborated on no less than eight songs on the 15-track effort. Timberland gets it in on three songs while Swizz Beats and the Neptunes each have a single prodcution credit.
