During some downtime at SXSW, Young Guru talks to VIBE about the status of Jay-Z and Kanye’s upcoming album. Stating the core of the album is finished, and how Kanye is a genius at what he does.

Kanye takes what they do and adds on to it and I think that’s his genius. I say this all the time ‘Kanye records are never the same twice, while he’s making them because they always grow.’

He also hints at another project from Jay-Z in the future.

Jay’s a consummate thinker, so sometimes he’ll call and be like ‘yo what do yo think about this.’ And he said this idea to me that I wish I could tell the world about. Some ideas are so simple and in-your-face, that they’re so incredibly smart, Guru continues. “So this next idea— when you hear this title — the world is going to say ‘why didn’t Jay think of that for the first album.’ The title and concept just fits in perfectly. It’s so simple, but yet so elegant at the same time. [Jay] can’t stop, it’s in his blood.
