Hey, mere mortals, did you know that Jay-Z is working on a new album? Do you wanna hear Jay-Z's new album? Well, you can't, you losers! Only LeBron James can.

LeBron told MTV, "Anytime I’m around Jay, he always plays me some new stuff. You know Jay, he’s really passionate about his music and when he’s ready to let the world hear it, he’ll let you guys hear it."

So when Jay-Z is ready to send his new album down a mountain on two tablets, please be ready. Until then let's hope LeBron continues running his mouth because we know Pharrell won't; earlier this month the producer-rapper said he was "sworn to secrecy" about Hova's upcoming album.
