Jay-Z Gets His Platinum Plaque For Magna Carta Holy Grail

(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z’s #newrules mantra has already taken affect, partially manifested in the receipt of his platinum place by the RIAA.

The event was tweeted out to the masses from the RIAA with the accompanying image.

Billboard magazine, the charting staple of the music industry, has taken exception to the million sold, because they were purchased by Samsung. They will count the first week’s sales, which insiders expect will give Jay his 12th number 1 album.

Jay’s Magna Carta Holy Grail is expected to move 350-400k, based on early estimates.

    1.4 million sold! out the gate, nice!

  • danboy1386

    A bunch of BS. Could understand if the album was hot but it aint. #newrules……sounds like a cop out to me.

  • Brindle

    This the worst album Jays done. He must know it to convince a company to buy 1 mill… You can do better Jay

    • johnblacksad

        A “Brindle” would not like Jay’s album!! But a “Brindle” would love Yelawolf… I agree though man this album is bangin.

      • Brindle

        Yelawolf? Nah bruh. and the animal pic is a wolverine, there’s no such thing as “a brindle”… brindle is “a name” or “a color” in dog breeds

      • s0rethumb

        Nonetheless Brindle, Brittany, Miley you wouldn’t understand me or an album such as Magna Carta Holy Grail..But you still got 8 mile.

      • Brindle

        you just might be dumbl if you think Jay is deep… and this whole ignorant white thing you keep being delicate about is off too. I’m black, go listen to some Brand Nubians, KRS-One, X Clan, PRT (poor righteous teachers) NAS, Immortal tech, Ras Kass (Nature of the Threat or Interview With a Vampire)… You and Jay could do a lot better, I promise

      • s0rethumb

        Never been accused of being dumbl..humble yes but never dumbl..And please spare me how black you are…You brought deep into the conversation. Is he making social commentary which if you have any inkling what that means yes he is…Schools out for today Spindle. Go listen to your Tyler the Creator greatest hit youngin. Everyone you mentioned I done scene in concert!

      • dexter

        Im biting the shitt out of my tongue rite now JBS…

      • Brindle

        lol… its just not Jay to me

  • Well he is the king of NY…..Jay-Z sets trends.

  • s0rethumb

    This album is fire…Of course the “budweiser” crowd ain’t gonna like it because like Yeezus this album got social commentary that hits the “Miley” crowd in the chest…Congratulations S dot!!

    • Brindle

      there’s no real social commentary on either album when you look at whats truly going on around us. They both fence riders and anti-everything they know we’re already against and for everything they already know we’re for.

      • s0rethumb

        if you are not 35 and older you just would not understand. The evolution is tremendous sure he plugs the materialistic-ness however if you don’t know what it is like to be amongst the “Hamptons” crowd you just would not understand…There are levels to this.

        Hov is for the people… really.
        But it is what it is… some just can’t appreciate a n!gga that’s winning… sad

      • s0rethumb

        What his album does as well, is air out them “Marshal Mathers and Mack Miller” rap fans that be on the site trying to be “anonymous”

      • StraightG

        If you have to be 35 or older to like an album it sucks ass.

    CONGRATS SHAWN!

  • Mr.CPT

    What!!! That album was trash. Kanye shit was better than that album. He only sold that many bekuz he gave in to corporate American. They got him on strings.

    • Nick ManGold Jimenez

      you are obviously on crack

      • brotha_man

        that kanye album was str8 honey boo boo (E40 voice)

      • Mr.CPT

        lol, beats wise hell yea, lyrics wise hell no. I agree kanye beats was weak on 60% of the album.

      • Mr.CPT

        And your obviously riding his dick!!!

    • king

      Samsung isn’t american own

    • Brindle

      i’m glad you said it

  • Guest

    Smh.

  • WillVetterGoodin

    Had to sell to samsung to get a mill out the gate?? How many is he REALLY gonna sell?? Is every artist gonna be able to cop a deal like this from now on?? He was bought out, he didnt sell a mill yet… if he even does. Album was ok, but really not his best. SMMFH10X Yall know this is degrading the artists and the “music industry” People wont be purchasing music, corp’s and industries will….WTF??

    I just do not get it… I mean when I was coming up it was about good music. Sales came bcuz of that… O well “Its JAY so its ok”….JAY even admitted the album was “good”. He even know he pulled a smart one. If anything he should get business man if the year…That ish is Purgatory Music… its between Hot & Not Hot. Stuck there.Smmfh

    • johnblacksad

      He said this album can compete for fourth best in his discography (which i happen to agree with… and btw when is the last time you heard an artist have the honesty to say that his most recent album ain’t the best he ever recorded?… everybody be on that bullsh!t when they release something… Hov is keepin trill again)

      He said himself : RD, BP1, TBA…

      • brotha_man

        i agree with that. the more i listen to it the more it grows on me

      • dexter

        JBS y’all n!@@a aint sukn me in son… I already vowed no more JAY Z comments for me this week… I will be simply reading for the duration my n!G. & u know I already said it is a good album…

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      thats your opinion … imo the abum is hot … its not bumpable from top to bottom … but i havent had a jayz album that i could bump from top to bottom since Reasonable doubt ………. dont let the sale control how you feel about the music … there have been masterpieces that didnt sale (illmatic) and then there were pieces of garbage that sold thru the roof (vanilla ice) …. jayz scammed the game he could of def served everyone sh*t on a platter if he wanted to but there are some very strong records on here and there are a few i can do without …… but as far as sales its all strategy …. a strategy that could allow more artist to be able to drop albums like Yeezus … and im not talking quality wise i mean with out having the pressures of having a big radio single ie J Cole with Power Trip …. you could create your art without compromise and pressure ……….

      • dexter

        True. BUT! its gotta be good music no matter how u put it shape twist it turn it roll it flip it conceal it say it…well u get the idea. The deal was made bcuz of a solid history of good music. & so we will see how it plays out interms of it becoming the norm.
        I can see maybe perhaps jokers gettn deals for less perhaps. A million will not be the standard coming out the gate. I see 50k if u street hot being the standard. A standard is always set in place for control… Hence…”they shouldve neva gave u n!@@as money!”

    “Can you believe this shit Guru?
    I’m from the hood man
    No, the REAL hood the hood, not the RAP hood
    The REAL hood, like three pair of pants
    Pair of sneakers
    My moms is bustin her ass
    Nigga I’m goin to Japan tomorrow!
    You understand what I’m sayin? Can you believe that?
    They have people, waitin
    at the airport like five days like I’m a Beatle or somethin
    That’s really somethin!
    Seen the best of the best, the worst of the worst
    still here”
    -My way

    This is so much more than music… but n!ggaz hate to see another muhfcuka make it!

    “Some of us made it, most of us digressed
    IN THE NAME OF THOSE WHO AIN’T MAKE IT,
    My progress IS YOUR SUCCESS,
    Please live through me”
    -do u wanna ride

    Not tryin to call anybody out, but only REAL, and i mean REALLY REAL muhfcukin n!ggaz at heart can understand what that’s about!

    On another note… pard’ my parisian but Hov will be here October 17th & 18th… who goin?

    • StraightG

      You know damn well those lyrics are weak as hell. You only like them because of the name attached.

  • johnblacksad

    “We ain’t even ‘posed to be here,
    If you escaped, what I escaped,
    You’d be in Paris gettin fcuked up too
    Ball so hard…
    Let’s get faded, Le Meurice for like 6 days”
    -Niggas in Paris

    Excuse-me but sometimes i feel like Hov makes music just for me!
    I’m not mad at all the hatin ninjaz… had they ever slept in Le Meurice, or The Ritz, or The Crillon, or The Plaza Athénée… they wouldn’t be hatin this much, i can guarantee!

  • johnblacksad

    “I can touch down and take off the same night”
    -Ignorant shit

    ha ha… this boy Hova is a trip! get it? a trip…

    *in my Jay-Z laugh

  • Saiyan Prince

    Do ya’ll listen to music or do you just skim thru it? The album is dope. I just dont understand why people hate it when somebody is winning. Hov is one smart black boy. You cant hate on business sense. Plus, the album is DOPE! Please put the ‘molly’ down, clear your minds and give the album a good listen.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      i def aint skim thru it … the album starts off bad, holy grail, but takes off starting @ #2 Piccasso ….. and goes hard all the way till you get passed Ocean (my fave) and starts to fall off after that … not immediately but its starts to taper off … by time you get to songs like jayzblue etc the album is near death lol ….. but still better than all this other crap ….. ive been working out to Vados Slime flu for forever but now im working out to MCHG so the album is dope …..

      • Saiyan Prince

        Yea, that ‘Oceans’ joint is tough. I like the ‘Holy Grail’ song, I just wish he would’ve used a different singer. Its like JT’s voice isnt strong enough or something. ‘Jay-Z Blue’ speaks to me because I have a daughter and I feel where he’s coming from. Overall I’m going to give it an 8/10. It didnt get the 9/10 because of the Rick Ross feature…lol…I can’t stand that dude. But hell, 8/10 is like a 10/10 compared to the other crap thats out there right now.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        dont get me wrong i like Jayzblue i was just saying by time you get there the album imo is falling off … jayzblue kind of picks it up especially if your a biggie fan … the lyrics will wake you up on some dejavu ish …. lol @ the rick ross feature … yeah im not a huge fan either but i must admit i like that song wit ross lol ….

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        sn holy grail i dont know man that thing just doesnt hit home with me especially as an intro …. hip hop album intro are classic very inviting and usually has you anticipating whats next … especially when we talking jayz … and i cant believe jayz is in this interview talking about “that was justins best performance ever” lol wtf imo that was the worst justin performance i ever heard … i dont know maybe is the music surrounding the vocals …. maybe he shouldnt of went with something thats so holy sounding ?????? i mean Oceans kind of has a holy feel to it too but Frank killed that hook dude went in !! i digress jayz voice lol

    • Brindle

      “the album is dope”/”somebody is winning”- 2 different topics… I’m glad he winning, just a lot of people don’t like the album

  • brotha_man

    this dude be hugging up on them white folks. congrats on the plaque

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      we are all humans #colorblind

      • brotha_man

        true. wouldn’t hurt to “see” successful brothas in his corner is all.

    • Brindle

      nothen wrong with huggen white people, Jay built the last few years of his career off it… Race aint the issue

      • brotha_man

        im not saying its an issue, just would like to see more of the blacks that are responsible for his success. he didnt do it alone. Im sure there are some very successful brothers and sistas that contributed to his success.

        you know that many people today view us(blacks) a drug dealers and killers, it would be nice to see him give more props is all.

        it would be sweet if he was surrounded by minority entrepreneurs and advisors in that pic is all….all suited up. #imadreamer

      • dolphin558

        Ok, you made this comment based on the picture above. The people in that picture were involved in the 1 million record deal with Samsung. If there were black Samsung execs involved, they would have been in the picture as well. Why would he pull one of the brothas and sistas that contributed to his success in THAT particular photo??? Jay-Z poses for many photos from time to time but in THIS particular photo the major players of that SPECIFIC deal are included. You make a blanket statement without thinking it through because it fits with your own preconceptions.

    • johnblacksad

      but gives Freeway the boot right?!

      LMAO when i think about that press conference… it was awkward AF!

  • MrNoName2K

    I copped the bootleg and damn glad i did..it just didnt seem like that raw Jay in MY opinion..big ups on the plaque though. Oh and that Samsung scam was some lame sh*t..

  • Brindle

    i’m glad the people who thought he could’ve done a better album are speaking up..

    no one’s haten on Jay. i’m proud of him for what he’s done and accomplished but i’m not his or anyones fan, i’m a fan of hiphop, especially socially aware music… but its somethings ya’ll got to admit. Jay has never spit a rhyme to make you aware of something you weren’t already aware of. if its been 12 months since you’ve picked up a non-fictional book he might seem deep. but i’ve never heard a jay rhyme and said after “i never thought of that” or “hm, I’m going to look into that”… he’s not that dude and never has been or wanted to be… nothing wrong with that til ya’ll start pretending he said somethen that anyone would say. Raise your hand if you knew what the Magna Carta was before Jay Z. My hand is raised…
