Jay Z: New Single Coming? Video Will Shoot on Monday Featuring Cops and Prisoners


What’s Jay Z up to?

A casting call has gone out for a new video that will be shot in New York on Monday.

The scenario is looking for two police officers, one older, the other younger. They can be black or Hispanic.

Director Daniel Kaufman is also said to be casting four “prisoners” in age range from 20 to 80. There’s also a mother in her 30s and an angelic young boy.

There are rumors that Jay Z and Beyonce cut a whole album separate from “Lemonade.” But it could be this is Jay Z’s new album. His last one, “Magna Carta,” came via Samsung and never charted although it had a hit single courtesy of Justin Timberlake singing “Holy Grail.”

Of course, that was before Tidal existed. A new Jay Z single would only be available on his service, where many records have been sacrificed (see: Kanye, Life of Pablo) to make a point.
