MAGNA CARTA HOLY GRAIL

JAY-Z had a big announcement during Game 5 of the NBA finals tonight: July 4 is both Independence Day and the release date of Hov’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.

He made the announcement in the form of a Samsung commercial that aired during the Heat-Spurs game. The three-minute ad shows Jay-Z working in the studio with Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Swizz Beats and Timbaland and musing on making art in the modern world.

Jay’s new business partner Samsung is offering Magna Carta Holy Grail free to a million Galaxy users 72 hours before its general release. Head over to the albums site to check out the commercial, and make sure you mark June 24 on your calender so you can be one of the million worldwide to download the app.
