Jay-Z Talks 9/11 Tragedy

New York rapper Jay-Z yesterday recalled the 9/11 tragedy in a press conference for his ‘Answer the Call’ charity event. The rapper’s classic ‘Blueprint’ album also dropped that day.

The concert, which will take place in Madison Square Garden, is not only intended to honor the memory of those who died in the 9/11 attacks eight years ago, but also to raise money for the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s fund.

Jigga, who was filming his music video in LA at the time of the attacks, stated that the images of the tragedy ‘looked like a movie.’ He continued to explain that ‘It didn’t look like anything that could be real,’ claiming that his album was the ‘last thing’ on his mind.

The rapper recalled how proud he felt watching the ‘heroic actions’ and the ‘strength of New York’ the following day. He explained that he felt that ‘Blueprint 3’ was a good opportunity to ‘revisit the day’ and ‘do something to help out.’

Ticket holders should expect at least four tracks from his new album ‘Blueprint 3’, which is due for release on September 11th, to be performed. Jay-Z mentioned that any guest appearances would remain a surprise but hinted that some could be expected.
