Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail is out physically today, so unless you got a chance to sample it via your Samsung app over the weekend, you can listen to the instantly-platinum record through Spotify now. Listen to Jay  deftly rap about his art buying dreams on “Picasso Baby,” go hard over an 8-bit inspired beat on “Tom Ford,” and name-drop the catastrophic BP oil spill with Frank Ocean on “Oceans.” Our favorite so far is probably the everyone-featuring “BBC” (seriously – Nas, Beyonce, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, and Justin Timberlake), with its samba-esque beat and irresistible groove. Check it out.
