Jay-Z sat down and spoke with Zane Lowe of BBC Radio One and revealed that after Timbo’s songs from Blueprint 3 began leaking his ego soured the recording process and ultimately their friendship:

“Kanye, who was the executive producer of Blueprint 3, was like, ‘Yo, let’s get Tim!’ We were all inviting to him and he just wasn’t accepting of the process. It seemed like it was more about him than the actual album.”

He also explains the serendipitous moment which birthed the all star collaboration “BBC”, how “No Church In The Wild” is the child of “Holy Grail” and “Oceans” and more.
