Jay Z's Magna Carta is here after one of the most innovative media campaigns which turned out to be a big flop.

Several weeks ago, Hov announced worldwide via a basketball game ad his upcoming album was on its way in short order. Like 3 weeks. Plus, it was using Samsung to back the release of one million albums to its Magna Carta users thus guarenteeing a platinum record before vinyl even hit the rack.

However come July 4th, angry fans sputtered on Twitter frustrated they couldn't access the Magna Carta album. Despite technical difficulties the album soon hit the cyber-sphere leaking worldwide.

The first single "Holy Grail" ft. Justin Timberlake premiered via radio earlier today featuring the sickest lyric laydown the 20/20 Experience man has perhaps ever done. Jay Z mulls over the pitfalls of fame and introduces a time capsule - lyrics from Kurt Cobain's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - 'We are all just, Entertainers , I feel stupid and contagious.'

The song was co-written by the-Dream with pulsating beats from Timbaland. If this single is any indication of the 15 track LP we would leave work and get in line right now!
