Pre-Review: Jay-Z Magna Carta Holy Grail


So we were all set to review the Jay-Z album upon receipt of the album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. But, after listening, we’ve opted to give it a few spins and then write a critical analysis of Jigga Man’s newest work. But, in the meantime, our homie A.P.T. has put together a pretty good initial review of the album, which we’ll consider a pre-review. He’ll encapsulates our views almost down to the tea (watch it until the end of the video). But, we’ll have our formal review shortly. Enjoy and offer your views.

    Hard hitting beats its hard to miss with Timberland Swiss & Pharell on the productions. Commentary is nice Im always more impressed when JAy talks everyday reg life ish (for me) LIke he does in JAy Z Blue & Nickels & Dimes. Was not impressed with “Beat boy drug dealer look…” I feel JAy is to influential to send such a message out so obviously @ this stage of the game for him. Subliminals would be preferred as it would go over the heads of the innocent & potentially keep them that way…& the flow/delivery is still nice to.
    Over all B grade…

    Beats overpowered him. Decent album tho. Nothing that sticks to your ribs. It’s fastfood music…like I said before…most artists would have just made this a mixtape but Kanye and Jay are too big for that so they just sold some mixtape shit. Jay and Samsung just found a way to sell the mixtape. Sometimes you really gotta thank God for bootleggers. I bought Wale and J. Cole after I heard their leak…they were worth the buy. Kanye and Jay was just rushed trash in comparison to what they are capable of..in my opinion. So I’m just going to act like their leak was equivalent to a mixtape dropping and keep it moving…7.5/10

    Oh…and if this nigga steals 1 more Philly flow..I swear! haha Meek u betta watch your back..at least you’re on though so he can’t Young Chris you

    • johnblacksad

      Wale’s album good? Maybe I should check then… I still haven’t picked up on him

      • dexter

        yea rite how bout that… same here…

      • IToldYoMommaYouAintSh_t

        He sound’s like he’s mumbling or kind of unpolished sometimes but if u can make it through that, then there are definitely some gems on that joint

      • dexter

        lmao! ite than hommie…

      • I just checked out Wale….I dont want to be a hater….but after listening to it twice!!!!…I went back to MCHG. Nothing really stood out with the exception of 88…bc Just Blaze produced it!

    • dexter

      meek flow? u think so? which jawn so I can re listen…

      • IToldYoMommaYouAintSh_t

        I think I heard it some on Tom Ford but one of the tracks he was even using the high pitch at the end of the bars like ol’ boy…but it will be a while before I listen to the album again to pick the songs

      • dexter

        naw u rite I did hear that tho where he totally stepped out 0f what he was flowing & did just that… good observation my good sir or ma’am…& very true inded
