Magna Carta Holy Grail – July 4th

So the partnership between Jay-Z and Samsung has finally been revealed. Its a not a streaming music system. Its not a special edition Galaxy phone which was my guess. But instead Jay-Z new album will be available 72 hours before release for Samsung S III, S4 and Galaxy Note II users for free to first 1 million downloads of the app on June 26th with the album becoming available on July 4th.

Is it a smart move? We live in a time when any album could be “free” but here he is giving it away for free.

At the end of the day it doesnt matter and I am excited to hear new music from Jay-Z and glad he has an album out before the Legends of Summer tour.

    It’s a nice incentive for Galaxy owners, so I’m definitely excited for that, and I mean come on, between his and Beyonce’s net worth, he doesn’t really need the money and can afford to give it away for free.

    I guess the album sounds promising though. Rick Rubin, Timbaland and Pharrell on the production, so hopefully it will feel more like The Black Album this time around.

    Damn that beat is crazy at the beginning. I hope the whole album is going to be on point in terms of beats.

    Definitely enjoying this album. Better than Kanye’s Yeezus in my opinion anyway and better than The Blueprint III for sure.

    Album is okay.
    But I rather listen to Yeezus, Summer Knight, and Run the Jewels.
