Flex just premiered the new JZ/JT single "Holy Grail". I quickly went from 'lukewarm' to 'warm' on what will be one of the most talked about tracks off Magna Carta Holy Grail purely because of the star power involved. Look for these two to perform this song on the Legends Of Summer tour coming up this month. In the meantime, MCHG is live streaming on Hot 97 and available on (I think, because I don't have a) Samsung phones now.
A couple of my highlights: the Nirvana allusion and Jay-Z's second verse on.
As we all anxiously await for Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album to drop, REVOLT got an exclusive video with Timbaland as he talk about the creation of this album. In this video, Timbaland talks of many deep issues that occured before and during the process of creating such a notorious album. Along with some issues that we all may know of, Timbo explains those issues in great detail and exposes more secrets that we may have not known. As Timbo speaks with a high passion about this album, he gives us his own visual of how "Magna Carta Holy Grail" stands alone in its own category and how other albums can't compare to what Jay is about to release.
Also, since the recent release of Kanye's "Yeezus" and J.Cole's "Born Sinner" everyone has been in an uproar saying who's album was the best and if Ye' or Cole did a good job with their album. Well, Timbaland steps in by giving his additional two cent on how he feels about each artist and their album. Seems to me like things are about to get real! Will Jay-Z's album blow Ye' and Cole's out of the park? What do you all think?
TIBS ADD: Jay-Z also revealed one last song lyric — this one for "F**kwithmeyouknowigotit" f/ Rick Ross. Check that out below and get ready to hear Magna Carta Holy Grail in an hour and change!
Above is the simple, yet very effective artwork for Jay-Z's hotly anticipated album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, dropping this Thursday July 4th. You can also see the updated tracklist with the revealed features so far above — plus, this morning's new lyric releases for "Tom Ford" and "Beach Is Better" are below.
Here's Jay-Z's Sunday release of new lyrics. "La Familia" will just feature these raps from Hov, that may be taking aim at Birdman or Lil Wayne? Am I interpreting too much from these "La Familia" lyrics, what do you think?
Wow, look at those names again. And isn't your first thought, "Could this be the greatest song ever?"
OK, even if it's not, that's quite an impressive list of A-listers on one song. But then take a look at the lyrics. I'm not resonating with so much materialistic bragging. Holding off any further thought though until the song comes out, now less than a week away on July 4th.
