Magna Carta Holy Grail

Admittedly this pandemic is one of the worst things that can happen to the human race. In this crisis Terius Nash proved again that sharing from a digital distance is the best caring.

Brooklyn’s boy, better know as Jay Z, wasn’t to be denied at this year’s GRAMMY awards. Following a show starting (and eye opening) performance with his wife Beyoncé, the MC took home the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration award for his Justin Timberlake-assisted hit “Holy Grail.”

Fans have an opportunity to cop a piece of clothing that’s an extension of Jay Z’s Magna Carter Holy Grail via a simple, but aesthetically clean t-shirt by Billionaire Boys Club.

And just like that, Jay Z unveiled a visual for his current single “Holy Grail,” featuring Justin Timberlake, moments ago via Facebook. Perhaps this was the basis for his recent rendezvous with the social media platform’s creator, Mark Zuckerberg.

Jay Z has developed a well-documented affinity for high art in recent years. With his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, in stores and current single, “Picasso Baby,” making noise, artist Alex Reyes created a passion project inspired by the Brooklyn-bred MC’s taste level.

Remember that crazy-eyed actress (Jemima Kirke) from Girls that was in Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby” video? The one that we pointed out here as looking kind of…off? Well it turns out that thanks to her antics she was kicked out of the video shoot by Hova’s security. 

Prior to premiering the video for “Picasso Baby,” Jay Z appeared on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher to discuss a bevy of topics ranging from music, the mogul’s disagreement with Harry Belafonte, and politics.

Jay Z premiered his “Picasso Baby” video performance art piece on HBO, just after an appearance as a guest on Real Time With Bill Maher. Hey, when your Hova, a Vevo premiere just will not suffice. 

You could write a book on why Jay Z remains perhaps Hip-Hop’s most relevant MCs after all these years. For one, it’s clear that he’s still very much a fan of the craft.

JAY Z reconnected with director Mark Romanek (“99 Problems”) at NYC’s Pace Gallery a few weeks ago to shoot a visual for “Picasso Baby.” To match the event status of Magna Carta Holy Grail, Hov will release the video, or should we say “Performance Art Piece,” Friday, August 2 at 11 PM on HBO.

Earl Sweatshirt recently performed a brief set at NYC’s Ludlow Garage on the second stop of Vitamin Water and The Fader’s 2013 #uncapped concert series. Afterwards, he sat down with host Miss Info to discuss his most recent happenings: a certain highly anticipated project called Doris and the recent Twitter fiasco surrounding his negative opinion on Jay Z’s Magna […]

U-God has enjoyed a long career as part of the Wu-Tang Clan, now celebrating 20 years in the game. With that longevity, Golden Arms has the resume to speak on the stars of today as he’s set to release his fourth solo album Tuesday (July 23). The Staten Island native talked the new record, the […]
