Throughout “Magna Carta,” the 43-year-old pretends he’s a threat to a system he’s so eagerly become a part of, as if his life as a champion capitalist is some perpetually escalating act of subversion. Hooray? Rooting for this man in 2013 is like rooting for Pfizer. Or PepsiCo. Or PRISM.

Plus, all of this Samsung hullabaloo has only distracted listeners from the fact that, musically and lyrically, “Magna Carta” is one of Jay-Z’s blandest offerings. Over 16 joylessly professional tracks, our hero laces up his sneakers for his bazillion-thousandth victory lap around the hip-hop universe. There’s no mood, no verve, no vision to this music. It’s the sound of champagne being sprayed around an empty locker room.

sh*t sounds like one big mid life crisis. This is what happens when you turn yourself into a brand: You turn your fans into customers. All the props in the world given for his success, probably more than I'll ever achieve in 10 lifetimes, but this album is awful. It's a reminded of how far lost Jay-Z has become in his art.

"Sometimes I don't think you all deserve me..." lmao Nas dropped a way better album at the same age almost.

Yo son this album quality is the DAMN NEAR if not the same EXACT quality as the app son!

I know I'm not buggin because I actually have the app & just played the iTunes, the Grouprip & the app's. The clarity of the songs LITERALLY does not change.

The only thing that changes was the file size, some of you n*ggas deadass don't know wtf you talking about lol. I honestly think that's the way this album was mastered. You can easily increase the kbps of a song which in tern increases the MB's.

I downloaded the iTunes with the booklet & you n*ggas in here complaining bout iTunes when that sh*t is literally probably the same exact quality as the grouprip. I believe grouprip is just an alternative cuz iTunes has their own format (m4a) which some sound systems don't play while the grouprip is usually mp3 if I'm not mistaken.

All my other iTunes mastered albums is lowder than MCHG, the mastering isn't terrible its still CD quality its just not what I expected from everything being so loud today.

We pretty much all got the same links, if you think the ACTUAL QUALITY OF THE SOUND ON MCHG is of the same standard as ESGN, The Gifted, Yeezus then pm me a link...

I have a good ear for this sh*t I'm telling you the iTunes definitely sounds better than the initial leak from Samsung.

I like the album fine, but I guess my main beefs would be:

- no classic records

- same content on every song

- two best beats are halfway wasted (fu*kwithme by too much lazy Rick Ross and Beach is Better too short)

You forgot "Somewhereinamerica"

n*ggas know I'm a Hov fan (a big one)

But none of those are classics. They just really good songs.

No song on this album is fu*king with ANY of his classic songs.


Can you honestly say any song on here is fu*king with "Song Cry" or "What More Can I Say?" or "Big Pimpin" or "Can I Get a....?" or "Empire State of Mind" or "Beach Chair"

Nah... Not at all..

Still dope records though
