Images Surface From Jay-Z’s ‘4:44′ Project
With less than a week before JAY-Z drops his mysterious 4:44 project, more and more details are starting to come out. Now images have surfaced from a visual accompaniment to the offering.
The images come courtesy of Jeymes Samuels of The Bullits who shared them on Instagram Live. They show well-known actors Jesse Williams, Emile Hirsch, Ron Perlman and Johnathan Tucker in prison jumpsuits. All the D.O.C numbers appear to end in 444. One of the photos is captioned, "20 minutes of sleep Jay Z got me getting my ass kicked."
This comes on the heels of news that Hov shot a video in Marcy a few days ago.
The buzz over the 4:44 project started three weeks ago when mysterious ads started popping up all over New York and Los Angeles, leading fans to believe a new Jay project was on the way. Then, Tidal teased a 4:44 visual starring Mahershala Ali.
Last week, it was officially announced as an album, which will be a Sprint and Tidal exclusive, and reportedly be produced solely by No I.D. “JAY-Z is a global icon and we’re giving customers an incredible opportunity to be among the first to experience his new album 4:44," Sprint president and CEO Marcelo Claure said in a statement. "Our loyal, existing customers, and customers who switch to Sprint, can experience the album exclusively, plus access a complimentary six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi, giving them access to content they can’t get anywhere else.”
News recently broke that Jigga is planning a tour for the fall. Hov has set the release date for the album for June 30.
