Jamie Foxx*Jamie Foxx is on his grind, working his acting career, but never leaving his music alone.

The multitalented entertainer just finished working on “Django Unchained” and began filming a new thriller, “White House Down,” but is also working on his forthcoming album.

He headed to the studio recently to begin recording for the new project in the middle of all the other madness (good stuff) in his life.

“I’m always working on new music,” he told The BoomBox. “My music partner, Breyon Prescott, is gathering music for me. I was with Rick Ross [recently] just chopping it up. He’s a friend of mine and we also talk on the music tip, gathering ideas on how do I keep appealing to young folks, but at the same time keep my grown man on. I want to keep it grown enough to where my daughter is not going, “Dad, what are you doing? Cut it out.”

Music is always going to be his first love. He continues to remind himself of great sounds while listening to Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Tank, Tyrese and Ginuwine, who have a new album together.

“And as far as hip-hop is concerned Future‘s ‘Same Damn Time’ is in my rotation,” Foxx said. “And I like ‘Cashin’ Out’… I couldn’t wait see Ca$h Out at the BET Awards. My daughter was looking at me like, ‘Dad, you really embarrassing me.’ I just like the dude in the background that says, ‘Nina!'”

“Django Unchained,” by the way, is set for a Dec. 25 release.
