[Listen] Jay-Z - "Dead Presidents 3"

Jay-Z rarely uses his Twitter account but that all changed last night with Hov answering a barrage of questions from his followers. One of the many questions in the Q&A was about an unreleased track; "Dead Presidents 3", and just like that it appeared online. Well, once Mr. Carter gave permission for Young Guru or Just Blaze to let it loose, it was only a matter of time really. What a wonderful time we live in. Check it out below.

Magna Carta... Holy Grail is out now.

[News] Jay-Z Announces New Album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail', Due Out July 4th

Jay-Z's long-awaited follow-up to 2009's The Blueprint 3 has been announced: Magna Carta Holy Grail will be released on July 4th.

During game five of the 2013 NBA Finals, a three-minute trailer debuted. The trailer showed Hov in the studio with Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland and Rick Rubin (who very recently served as executive producer on Kanye's Yeezus), where they discuss the beats and rhythms behind this new record. It also sampled some new music, and what you hear throughout the trailer sounds awesome. Check it out below.

The album is about, like this duality of how do you navigate through this whole thing, through success, through failures, through all this and remain yourself."—Jay-Z on Magna Carta Holy Grail

Samsung has already purchased one million copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail, and will release an app on June 24th that gives an insight into the record. Then, the album will be available to download for free through that app on July 4th at 12:01am EST to the first one million Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 and Note II users.

It was only a matter of time before Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z collaborated.
