Jay-Z is ready to drop his new album, The Ascension, which will feature many African talents.
Per NotJustOk, the American rapper is collaborating with a line of the top talents on the continent, including Nigeria’s Olamide, Sarkodie, Femi Kuit, and Nasty C.
On the American front, he will also feature Beyoncé, Rick Ross, H.E.R., and the Lighthouse Family.
In statement shared with the press, per NotJustOk, he said of the album:
“I’ve always wanted to get in touch with my roots and connect to the motherland. You know, Africa is blessed with so much talent and I felt like it was time to tap into that resource. The Ascension is not just talking or focusing on Africa but it’s also about me giving back to the people, familiarizing with the culture and connecting more with the motherland.”
Uhm, LOL. We wish!
Happy April Fool’s Day to you all, readers!
