Back when Jay-Z was performing at the Barclays Center for the first time, he had a fateful subway encounter with Ellen Grossman, an old lady who did not recognize him by face. Almost a year after this incident, Grossman is back to break down Jay's recent album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Even though she was not too familiar with Jay's material before that incident, she prepared herself to breakdown the album, and showcased insightful commentary on the project. You aren't going to find too many album reviews as good as Grossman's. Watch the clip above.
