Young Guru On New Jay-Z Album & Watch The Throne Sequel

blame it on Shake March 5, 2012

The big homie Young Guru sat down with Complex to speak on Jay-Z’s next solo outing..

Jay-Z is always working on stuff, it’s a concept that I can’t talk about but I’m marveled at how smart this guy is. When he told me the concept, I was like ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ It was just so simple. It’s not a concept album though. It’s not like American Gangster, it’s not a Beatles concept album. It has a concept and a title, and the title and the concept fit him so well that people are going to be like ‘Wow.’

I like certain writers because it takes me 8,000 paragraphs to get my full point across. When somebody can take what I just said and condense it into two sentences and still have the same effectiveness, that’s a good writer. The simplicity of the title and the concept that it conveys is incredible.

I can’t tell you the title, it’s so good it’s like, ‘Oh my god why didn’t I think of that? What made you think of that and why haven’t we done that before?’ It’s just staring us in the face.

Guru also shares his thoughts on the possibility of Watch The Throne 2 and what he’d like to see happen. Check what he had to say here.

    I agree with him 1000% on the Watch the Throne 2 format let Ye release GOOD MUSIC Album & Jay release his next album who knows possibly another Ye album then WTT2 to build it up

    & I wonder what Jays CD is gonna be called sounds like a brain teaser!

    k dot, naw thats what faggots like you do when you hear a k dot song. Its like what Drake said in a recent interview I read, some people are so good at what they do that it just becomes cool to hope they fail or under deliver and thats the case with Jayz. I heard this news a while ago but I dont know what concept he could possibly use now but it’ll most likely be something epic. Let the hate begin

  • G.O.O.D. Music Album + Jay-Z Solo Album + WTT2… That’s some good damn music!

    @trill4real, a Reasonable Doubts II? That’s just stupid, that album should never be duplicated, I mean, American Gangster was kind of like a sequel to it but no, you, me, and the rest of the world does not need to see a sequel to that or the Vol. series, enough with the sequel and concept album, just come out with good music and stop with the gimmicks!

    Lol this been old news. The title of the next album’s been confirmed to be “Interview”

  • kelvin-izza-g

    dang i cant lie..
    hearin guru talk about it got me hype..

    if its really ‘interview’ tho thats kind of a buzzkill..

  • Hit-Boy’s been tweeting #jayzinterview for a while now, that’s probably it.

  • Yep

    Fuck Jay-Z and Young Guru…he beefs up everything Jay does like he’s coming with something new and it’s all pretty standard bullshit. Niggaz need to go back to keepin shit hood and stop integrating the culture so hard, this is why hip-hop is nonexistent.

  • jayzcanrap

    Kanye is good for nothing, okay, maybe he’s good for Beats and Fashion Editorials. Jay-Z needs to steal his beats and kick his ass to the curb. the one right outside the maaaaaall.

    ball so hard muthafucka wanna…
