Just Blaze admits Hov's ‘The Blueprint' “happened so fast”
There have always been the popular myth that Jay-Z recorded his sixth studio album, The Blueprint, in just three days, and it happens to be close to the truth. During a recent interview on Idea Generation, producer Just Blaze confirmed that the better part of the iconic album was actually created in three days.
“The Blueprint happened so fast,” Just recalled. “You know, like, people always think it's like an urban legend or myth that the album was done in three days, but the vast majority of it was. Jay walked in on a Friday like, ‘anybody got some beats?'. I just got a CD from Ye. He wasn't scheduled to record, so I had nothing on stash for him. So it was like me going through the hard drive.”
