Jack White: 'I Just Did a Record With Jay-Z'

Local guitarist/drummer and man-about-the-music-business Jack White tells GQ that he recently wrapped up a recording sesh with none other than the Hova:

"I just did a record with Jay-Z," said White. "We did a song together a few weeks ago. It was incredible. I played him something that I've been kicking around for a while and he immediately came out with words for it. It's unbelievable-sounding."

As you'll recall, Mr. Beyonce dropped White's name late last year while talking about his next album, calling J.W. a "renaissance man," and saying he wanted to make "the most experimental album I ever made." Considering Jack White's last album -- The Dead Weather's Horehound, with its rap-metal flavorings -- was probably the least experimental he's ever made, this could be an interesting tension. Jay's ability to rap wherever, whenever -- even when there's no drumbeat -- certainly doesn't hurt. Supposedly it's in the can, so here's hoping it's as awesome as Jack says.
