The roll-out to Jay-Z's forthcoming twelfth solo album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, is bringing his "I'm not a businessman/I'm a business, man" mantra to never-before-seen levels. Kept well under wraps so far, the album doesn't come out til Thursday. (Though people who have a Samsung Galaxy phone will be able to download it Monday.) But since that three-minute-long television commercial ran during game 5 of the NBA finals, boasting that all-star-team of legendary (if a bit long-in-their-teeth) producers, Jay and his partners at Samsung have been tag-teaming us with more commercials, lyric sheets, billboards and scavenger hunts to stoke interest in the release. (Hardly seems necessary, right?) What we'd really like, of course, is some MUSIC! But meanwhile, while we wait, here is: What We Know About Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail So Far.
