No, I’m not calling Jay-Z’s newest album shit. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
I have never been so hyped about a new hip-hop/rap album. Kanye’s recent Yeezus got me excited, but I’m calling it right now, Magna Carta Holy Grail will be rap album of the year. J Cole’s Born Sinner is of the same caliber, with great music as well, but MCHG… Damn.
Seen all those Samsung commercials promoting it? Heard the background music? Those teasers do not do this album justice. Of course, you get a glimpse of the production process. But once you hear the album, you’ll be blown away. I know I was.
Here’s the tracklisting for you.
- Holy Grail (feat. Justin Timberlake)
- Picasso Baby
- Tom Ford
- F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit (feat. Rick Ross)
- Oceans (feat. Frank Ocean)
- Part II (On The Run) (Feat. Beyonce)
- Beach Is Better
- Jay Z Blue
- La Familia
- Nickels and Dimes
Here’s my advice. Don’t hesitate to download this album. This is going to go down in history as one of the best rap albums of all time. Jay never disappoints.
