Jay-Z - Magna Carta Holy Grail

Magna Carta Holy Grail, the rap mogul’s 12th LP, was made available to Samsung smartphone owners three days before its official release only if they downloaded a special app "hmm". This album faced an uphill climb before most listeners ever heard a note.

Jay-Z raps about expensive paintings, tricked-out cars and high-profile designers, leaving the listener bludgeoned by bling. It gives Grail a feeling of imbalance, tipped toward the embrace of materialism over raw emotion *yawns*

Magna Carta Holy Grail features production work from the ubiquitous Pharrell Williams and Timbaland, among others

  1. 1 of the 1st things I said before even listening to this album, is that JayZ actually affords most of the things he raps about; whether or not that's a good thing depends on a person's level of attention on Jigga's career timeline.

    I have especially learnt that some JayZ albums appreciate with time, which means that you can pack this album away and come back to it in a year and chances are that you'd have higher appreciation for it. Can't wait to finally give it a listen. WORD UP!!
