    […] As we all know, Jay-Z released his 12th studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, under #newrules. He signed a deal with Samsung allowing the company to buy 1 million copies of the album to give away to customers who downloaded the accompanying app through the companies newest cell phone. In the end both parties come out on top as far as product promotion but there has been heavy speculation that the million copies of MCHG that Samsung bought to give away shouldn’t count toward the final sales results or “numbers” that Jay produced with the new music. LL Cool J, although respecting Jay’s hustle, feels differently about the deal. See what he had to say below. At the end of the day, Jay-Z sold 528, 208 units of MCHG in the first week so 1 million less than that is really not that big of a difference. I do see where LL Cool J is coming from but living in a digital age, it’s smart for Jay-Z to take advantage of it and set new trends for those to follow.  via AllHipHop […]
