At 12:00 AM last night, Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail was finally unleashed upon the world. Although immediate reactions are already pouring in through Twitter, Facebook, and other websites, we're holding off just a bit before we can say too much about Jay's latest album. Instead, we took a couple of careful listens of the new material and made a few observations about the lyrical content of the album, counting up all the references to pop culture, art, and rich guy stuff we only hear about from Jay-Z.
