It’s about that time, Magna Carta Holy Grail season is in full swing. Here’s the track we talked about a week ago, it’s the semi-title track “Holy Grail” featuring Justin Timberlake and if you were worried about this having a Suit & Tie vibe; rest assured it does not.
Not even 4 bars in Jay-Z throws Hammers name in there, very much in the same context as his “Unlike Hammer, 30 million can’t hurt me” that resulted in a one sided beef (which is usually how it is when you go at Hova) with MC Hammer dropping a diss record and a music video as well….The whole thing was weird and hard to listen to or watch.
This is basically Jay-Z letting hammer know he’s not a factor, literally 3 years later. That’s how he treats rivalries.
Hov received permission from Courtney Love to use the late Kurt Cobain’s lyrics from Nirvana’s song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” As it turns out the clearance was for this song, you can hear Cobain’s lyrics all over the hook.
Magna Carta Holy Grail officially hits stores on July 9th!
So what’s your thoughts on the single?
