Jay Z Returns July 4
Normally when a commercial pops up on a YouTube video, I hover over that skip button and click it as soon as those first five seconds are up. But last night, this video for Jay Z’s upcoming “Magna Carta Holy Grail” popped up on eight of the videos I wanted to watch and I sat through all three minutes of it eight times. That thing guitar part layered with those piano chords leading into the drop that blows out a speaker? That’s fucking Hip Hop! And I can’t wait to hear the whole damn thing.
We’ve also got Timbaland and Pharrell lurking around in the studio, so you know the production on this thing is gonna be thick with crazy instrumentation and strange beats that all just fit together. Honestly, I’d like to see a feature length film of Timbaland and Pharrell just dicking about in the studio creating magic.
Never expected to write so much about music, but this is shaping up to be an awesome summer!
