The time has come. JAY-Z has put his extensive business obligations aside to return to the art which brought him his initial global prominence – rap.
Titled 4:44, Hov’s new album is the Brooklyn-bred mogul’s first since his 2013 effort, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The only features on the album are from his mother, Gloria Carter, as well as Frank Ocean and Damian Marley. “Family Feud,” a highly personal cut, also includes uncredited contributions from his wife Beyoncé. It’s also noteworthy that legendary producer No I.D., a collaborator of JAY’s, heavily assisted in the production of this album.
Ten tracks in length, 4:44 can be streamed below exclusively through TIDAL.
