Rap star Jay-Z is hoping Prince and 50 CENT will give him a helping hand on what is expected to be his last album - before he turns his hand to acting.

THE BLACK ALBUM is largely thought to be the star's last musical offering, and he's desperate to work with the legendary Purple Rain hitmaker and the controversial new face of hip-hop.

Jay-Z explains, "I'm trying to get a song on there with Prince, then I'm good. I worked with Michael Jackson before, I got that one done. So for Prince to be the last one, I'm gonna be good."
