Beside running his clubs, hotel chains, clothing line, new ad agency and many other business ventures, Jay-Z is moving on with his music career. The 38-year-old reportedly is talking with fellow rapper Nas to work on a joint album which will be released in early 2009.

New York Daily News' gossip column reported that Jay-Z will release the collaborative album which is tentatively titled "The Kings of Hip Hop" through his new but not yet confirmed label, Carter Music Group. Jay-Z himself is due to release a studio album this year while Nas has also set date April 22 for his album "Nigger".

Representative of Jay-Z has not commented on this.

He left his position as CEO of Def Jam the end of last year. When asked what was his next step after the departure, the mogul said, "I wanna continue to push the envelope, represent the culture well. Make the people proud. The next thing is gonna involve a little bit of everything. It has to involve music, 'cause I love music."

On other news, Jay-Z is faced with a $5 billion suit after an activist named Clive Campbell claimed Jay-Z as well as developer Bruce Ratner and Barclays bank worked "in concert" with Barclays and "profited from the African Slave Trade and continue to profit from these gains, through a conspiracy dating back hundreds of years and continue to date to oppress Black people, enslave them, unlawfully deport them to all corners of the Earth."

Jay Zee has no respect to the Gods of Hip hop. check this "I was gonna kill a couple rappers But they did it to themselves I was gon' do it with the flow But they did it with their sales I was gon' 9/11 'em, but they didn't need the help And they did a good job them boys is talented as hell" Pac and Biggie deserve some respect in their grave. A coward will always punch a Punching bag coz it does not hit back.Tell him to say that to Emm- now that Punching bag will reply -blow bye blow.he wouldn't dare

Looking forward to Nas, but Jay Z? I don't get why people think he is os great. He is contradictory, shamelessly and frequently bites rhymes from so many true hip-hop legends, and why constantly rants about how great he is. Doesn't he have some other businesses to run. The megalomania is running amok!

nas and jay are gonna bring real hip hop back in the game if they do a collabo album.I dont care what nobody is sayin, Hip hop has been dead since damn 1999.Is going to take these two to put it back in its proper perspective.

The N word is dead!As black people the only thing we can do is change ourself. we can't change history no matter how many times we bring it back. the world is not going to change. people fear what they don't understand. they know we are the truth in everything we do. Nas i love you man but you got to let the N word go . we can't change history we can only make new history to show them we were much more then what they thought.
