Jay Z was in Kingston over the weekend where he spent some time with Damian Marley laying down some bars at the iconic Tuff Gong Studio. Hov is reportedly working on a new album, but he has not confirm anything. That’s not all he did in in Jamaica. Hov met with some local legends like Junior Reid and Ziggy Marley who gave him a tour of Kingston including a visit to Trench Town.
“We did some work in the studio recently and he wanted to come to Jamaica to get a tour of the place,” Damian Marley told Billboard. Junior Gong also said that he didn’t have any details on the project that Jay Z is working on but all he could say is that he did some work with him. “Well, I did some work with him for some stuff that he’s working on,” he added. “I’m not really sure of the details of his project in that sense, but we worked on some music together. I’ve been a fan of his music since he came out. We’ve never done any musical work together. So that was a joy to finally work together musically.”
This is not the first time that Jay Z is visiting Jamaica but is the first time he is visiting Kingston, which is ground zero for reggae and dancehall music.
