Jay’s new one, Magna Carta

Not even trying to do a long review cause honestly at this point, what else could one of his albums be but good?  Question is just like how good?  Almost feel like I should be critical, like I just instantly like all his stuff for the most part.  The whole Samsung thing was kinda weird, whatever.  But shit, let me say this: a large portion of the people critiquing him, saying he’s selling out, will work the majority of their hours awake doing something they aren’t even passion about for $75K-$125K a year.  He got $20M for a mutually advantageous distribution deal doing something he loves…  ...  ...  ...  ...

Back to this too short album review:  ***Stand out for me off the bat was the Rick Ross track.  I love that Jay knows how to integrate someone like Ross so well, man, just ride around playing that song while planning a vacation to Europe, right?  “Shopping bags, I’m a tourist…”  ***After that, the Frank Ocean one is perfect - love the visuals.  ***Tom Ford, he’s still got such a perfect sense of humor, you know?  Someone asked me like, what does molly have to do with him wearing Tom Ford - how do they even relate?  It’s like…exactly, they don’t.  LOL.  ***Best line???  Hmm, “Yellow Basquiat in my kitchen corner, go ahead lean on that shit Blue, you own it.”  Ahhh, he paints the picture perfect, more ways than one.  ***Bunch of other super good ones, grab it…

***And!!!  Yimmy Yayo did all those videos, #too #current
