Hova Art: Jay-Z Joins The Dream On "High Art" + Jay-Z X MTV = "Water For Life" II, Tour To Kick Of September 9... "Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life," To Premiere November 24

Jay's blessed his good friend,  The Dream, with  a  verse for "High Art".   Mr. Carter is focused, and music ready.  Now all we need is his next solo album.  Check out Jay & Dreams new song below.  And also find out about his second, Water For Life, tour, which kicks off Sept. 9 in Krakow, Poland, and runs through Oct. 28 in Melbourne.   Jay's trek will once again be chronicled via the MTV documentary "Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life," which will premiere Nov. 24 on MTV.

Read on to see what Jay had say about his second, "Water For Life" Tour.
"In the beginning, when I was going out on a world tour, I was going out to play music," the Def Jam president said earlier this month. "But I said to myself, I can't go to these places I've been and not go out and see the people that have been touched by my music for over 10 years. From that morphed, 'Well, I'm not just going to go over there and rap to them.' I'm going to help and see what I can do in these areas."

Before heading abroad, Jay-Z will also perform Sept. 7 at the Fashion Rocks concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Chatter remains high about his work on a new studio album, but it is unknown how close to completion the project is. Here are Jay-Z's tour dates:

Hova Comes From Greatness:

1933 Harlem

New York Public Library's Schomburg Center discovered this photo, of a Harlem, man during the Harlem Renaissance, that definitely must be a relative of Jay's.  Such greatness.
