Over the course of their careers, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon have appeared on enough classic tracks together to have a joint greatest hits album. Today we learn that a track on Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail could've almost made that list.
If you're as big as Jay Z, you can't get away with uncredited samples, even if they appear on very brief interlude tracks. On Magna Carta Holy Grail's "Versus," which lasts for all of 51 seconds, producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz sampled Swiss musi
Jay Z's "Tom Ford" off his Magna Carta Holy Grail album thrust designer Tom Ford into the hip-hop consciousness, and the lyrics "I don't pop molly / I rock Tom Ford" became the go-to for those against the molly craze (and those tired of it).
Jay Z's "MCHG" tour hit Philadelphia last night, and Hov surprised those in attendance by bringing out Philly native and MMG rapper Meek Mill. Meek came out to perform "I'm A Boss" and his "Dreams And Nightmares" Intro for a very appreciative crowd.

Jay-Z will be heading overseas to see all his European fans, in support of his album Magna Carta Holy Grail this coming October. The album was Hov's first #1 in the UK.
Jay Z received his platinum plaque for Magna Carta Holy Grail shortly after the album's release, as the LP was certified platinum upon its release. It was only time before Hov doubled his efforts-- and now he's reached double platinum.
Jay Z is continuing with his "New Rules" strategy, and has decided to release his new video on Facebook. We saw photos of Jay and Mark Zuckerberg together a few months back, so this may have something to do with their meeting.

Jay-Z Feat. Beyonce, Nas, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Swizz Beats & Timbaland "Target Commercial For "BBC"" Video

In the fourth and final part of Jay Z's interview with BBC1's Zane Lowe, the rapper discusses his family and the future. Jay talks about "Jay-Z Blue," "Tom Ford," "F.U.T.W." as well as Beyonce, Kanye West, "Watch The Throne 2" and more.Thoughts?
Jay-Z's Samsung app may have got him the platinum plaque he was looking for, but it has also made a lot of users (and Killer Mike) uncomfortable with the data it collects.
The numbers are in, and Jay-Z pulled through, as expected, with the #1 debut on the charts this week. Magna Carta Holy Grail actually moved more units than expected-- selling a whopping 528,208 copies opening week, according to HitsDailyDouble.
In the first part of Jay-Z's interview with BBC Radio 1, he revealed that two of the tracks from Magna Carta Holy Grail actually date back to the Watch The Throne sessions, and that he and Kanye argued for four days over where they would end up.

A day after J Lake invited Jigga on stage to perform "Suit & Tie," Jay-Z returns the favor and has Justin Timberlake join him on stage to perform "Holy Grail" for the first time ever live at the "Wireless Festival" in London.
