Jay-Z has fans in a frenzy as they are speculating that he is getting ready to drop a new album.

The speculation began after the rapper announced that he will be auctioning off a trophy case that highlights all of his albums from his “Book of HOV” exhibit. The case will also come with Hov’s autograph and all of the proceeds will go to the Brooklyn Public Library.

In the case, fans noticed that 13 of the 14 slots are occupied, leaving one slot to be filled after his most recent album, 2017’s 4:44. We reported that during his interview with Gayle King, Jay spoke on if he will return to the studio one more time.

“I already [used the word ‘retirement’], I can’t do that ever again,” he said. “I’ll say I wanna make music, but it has to be something important.” Jay continued, “I don’t wanna just make a bunch of tunes. That’s not gonna serve me. It won’t feed me, first of all. I have to be saying something important. It has to mean something, you know? It has to mean something to a larger society.”

The rapper added, “4:44, for example, was a personal story, but the amount of vulnerability in there allowed for a lot of people to explore the space.”

Do you think that Jay-Z is getting ready to release a new album?
