In less than 10 hours, Jay-Z’s highly anticipated album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, will be released to one million Samsung Galaxy users.
While most music lovers are expecting the entire album to end up on the webosphere in the early morning hours of Independence Day, there’s no telling when the rest of the world will officially receive the hip-hop doctrine known as Jay-Z’s twelfth studio album.
Earlier today, Jay-Z unveiled the cover art and installation of Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is resting at the Salisbury Cathedral Chapter House.
After being in the music industry for almost two decades, Jay-Z has positioned himself as one of the most savvy and calculated businessmen in hip-hop.
