Jay-Z Debuts ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ LP Next to Real Magna Carta Document

Jay-Z Magna Carta
Life + Times

Holy Yeezus! We are just hours away from hearing what could be Jay-Z‘s magnum opus. Today (July 3), the rap veteran unveiled the cover for his forthcoming album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail.’

Hov took it one step further and debuted the cover at England’s Salisbury Cathedral, where one of the four original 1215 Magna Carta documents are enclosed in a shatterproof case.

The ‘Magna Carta’ display will remain in the Cathedral through July, according to Jay-Z’s website Life + Times.

On July 4, history will be made as the first 1 million Samsung Galaxy users who downloaded the app will hear the album in its entirety for free. The rest of the world will get to enjoy it on July 9.

In addition, the RIAA has announced that Jay-Z’s digital album will be eligible for a platinum plaque on the day of its release. However, Billboard will not count the digital sales of the album.

Anticipation for the release is mounting as fans are eager to hear what the Brooklyn emcee is bringing to the masses.

“Can’t wait to get it!” wrote one fan who must own a Samsung Galaxy phone.
