Jay-Z has released the visuals for single Holy Grail featuring Justin Timberlake off the album “Magna Carta… Holy Grail.” This is the first video to ever be premiered on Facebook (no surprise Jigga is a BUSINESS MAN).
Directed by Anthony Mandler, “Holy Grail” tells the story of being in the music business, having it all and watching it all fall before your eyes. Jay tells us how the life he lives seems glamourous to us but there is a dark side to the industry that we don’t see. Giving examples of Mike Tyson, MC Hammer going bankrupt and Kurt Cobain committing suicide all due to fame. Explaining what comes with the fame, Hov reveals he can’t spend time with daughter Blu without being seen by the paps.
“Holy Grail” is currently number 6 on the Billboard Top 100. Watch the video below.
Brooklyn native rapper Foxy Brown cant seem to catch a break this year. Despite not putting out new music in the last 5 years Foxy’s name seem to be all over the blogs. Things got emotional for the rapper when she stopped by MTV’s RapFix Live and did a interview with Sway. Rumors from Jay-Z giving her an STD to the most recent rumor of her stealing $900 worth of weave.
With all the rumors on the internet and blogs with no validity, Foxy Brown admits that she misses the days of Wendy Williams when there was actually some truth to what she was reporting.
Catch a few highlights from the interview below
On the rumor that she accused Jay Z of giving her an STD when she was 14
Keep in mind that this wasn’t in Time Magazine, Daily News, People, XXL–it was an article. An anonymous blogger who can be somebody from Wisconsin named Joe Sho Midget. First of all, anybody that knows me, knows that my mom is an educator. The way I speak alone, my diction alone negates everything. That’s not even how I speak. Two, anybody that knows me knows how much I love Jay period. Have you ever heard Foxy dissing Jay Z or Jay Z dissing Foxy ever? So we are gonna wait 15 years later and start calling people out of the blue? Horrible things were said. [A blogger can say anything and people believe it!]
Was I shocked when Jay said the line [I never stuck my cock in the Fox box] in ‘Picasso Baby’?, Yes. We have a history that supersedes music. We sit back and we laugh at those rumors. I think he began to feel the pressure because people were saying my age. She was 15 and 14 and after a while that gets to a person. The Jay I know, the Shawn I know, never comes out of character and that’s my point. I think that’s where the tears came from earlier because people don’t understand that it does affect people more than you think.
Reunited and it feels so good !
Its been over a decade since the original founders of Roc-A-Fella Records Jay-Z and Damon Dash last spoke. The two were spotted in New York City at a birthday party for music executive Chaka Pilgrim, who used to run marketing for Roc-A-Fella and now works for Jay-Z.
In April, Dame appeared on a podcast with Combat Jack to open up about the break-up.
I don’t think it’s an issue with him. I just think we took different paths. I’m proud of everything that he’s done and I’m proud of everything that I’ve done since then. I feel like I’ve done a lot and whatever his dreams are he’s made them come true but my dreams aren’t the same as his. What I consider a win most people don’t. Life is about perspective. So my perspective on things is probably different than most.
In response to Dame’s comment Jay Z stated in a interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez
The thing we built , you can’t take that away so no matter what, the love is still there. Because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history… We created something that’s gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame.
Happily posing for photos together which were subsequently shared on Instagram, Oluwaseye Olusa who took the pictures of the pair captioned his photograph “I don’t think there was anyone in that room last night that didn’t shed a tear or at least get emotional.”
There you have it people , a moment in history ! First Mase and Diddy now Dame and Jay ! Do I hear new music in the future ?
Before working alongside Pharrell Williams and Rick Rubin on Jay-Z’s album Magna Carta Holy Grail, multi millionaire producer Timberland and Jay were not on speaking terms. According to Timberland the two had fall out over personal issues. During an interview with Diddy’s Revolt TV Timberland revealed
Me and Jay fell out, I missed his 40th, he didn’t miss mine he did sent me a gift. But I missed his, and it was over petty stuff, it was more personal stuff and disagreements it was not no industry related, it was more personal and I was wrong
Although Timberland said the tension between the two was not business related, Jay-Z tells a different story in a chat with BBC’s Zane Lowe.
He was still on Blueprint 3, but the fallout happened at the end of that album. A couple of songs was getting leaked that was his songs. That whole thing was just like…it just ruined the whole process. I wanted him and Kanye to produce — Kanye was the executive producer of Blueprint III and was like, “Let’s get Tim.” We were all inviting to him, and he just wasn’t accepting of the process. It seemed like it was more about him than the actual album.
When you go in and you make an album, you have to put all ego aside. I’m putting ego aside. Everyone has to put ego aside for the sake of the project. He wasn’t accepting of that. That was almost the last straw type of thing, so we just went our separate ways. After those concerts and he came back, I’d seen a new Timbaland. He had this maturity and this growth. I was like, “Oh, okay, this is gonna work out.
Featuring on the track titled “Sorry” will be singer Keri Hilson. Over the course of the years the BeyHive have been accusing Keri Hilson of shading Beyonce especially when she remixed her “Turning Me On” track in 2009. Keri will also be clearing up the air between her and Beyonce.
This could be the start of something really great. Timberland is currently signed to Roc Nation and Keri Hilson is on a music hiatus enjoying her boo thang. The song will be on Timberlands upcoming album Shock Value III. Watch Timberland and Jay-Z talk about their feud below along with the new song.
