Jay-Z revealed the tracklisting to his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail over the weekend. Now the lyrics to the title track have surfaced.
On the Justin Timberlake-assisted “Holy Grail,” Hov struggles with fame and raising his daughter Blue Ivy in the spotlight.
“Blue told me to remind you ******/ **** that **** ya ‘ll talk about,” he raps, while using MC Hammer, Mike Tyson, and Kurt Cobain as examples of celebrities who got caught up in the bright lights.
He also laments about not being able to live a normal life. “I got haters in the paper/ Photo shoots with paparazzi/ Can’t even take my daughter for a walk/ See them by the corner store I feel like I’m cornered off/ Enough is enough/ I’m calling this off,” says Jay.
The lyric sheet was revealed when the “Magna Carta Holy Grail” app went live on Google Play on Monday. The first 1 million Samsung Mobile users who download it will be able to get the album for free on July 4.
Jay-Z and J.T. will kick off their “Legends of the Summer” tour on July 17 in Toronto.
