Beyoncé and Jay-Z were in quite the party-hearty mood Monday night.
The superstar couple went all-out glam to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hova’s 40/40 Club in New York City, bringing some serious star power to the 10-and-still-going-strong Manhattan hot spot.
The rapper looked dapper in a silver-gray suit, while his ladylove rocked a long white sequined cut-out dress that highlighted her signature curves.
After arriving at the club, the two hightailed it to their VIP table, where they were seen busting out some sweet PDA, holding hands as Beyoncé repeatedly kissed her hubby on cheek. (more…)Read More
With yesterday’s announcement of his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, right before the halftime show of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Jay-Z has easily taken over the minds of Hip-Hop lovers and internet sites everywhere. Taking to Twitter today, as he rarely does, Hov let off a series of tweets speaking on the innovation that has taken place with the release of works by his artists and those he is closely affiliated with. Citing the releases from Kanye West, J. Cole & Wale as evidence, Hov proclaims that the “new rules” of Hip-Hop are already in motion. Ending his tweets, Jay-Z let us know that we may not hear from him via his Twitter account until 2014, the reason, “that was my yearly allotment”. Check out the tweets after the jump…Read More
As the Miami Heat faced off against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 5 of the NBA finals Sunday night, a curious TV ad aired near the end of the second quarter featuring rap star Jay-Z in a studio, riffing with a cast of characters including producer Rick Rubin and artist Pharrell Williams. At one point, a member of the posse is shown taking notes on a tablet device. More than two minutes into the three-minute video Samsung Electronics Co. tagline flashes across the screen: “The Next Big Thing.”
The connection: Samsung has purchased 1 million copies of Jay-Z’s coming album, entitled “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” slated for release July 4, and plans to give them to Samsung Galaxy smartphone users for free – 72 hours ahead of the release. The users are to receive the music through an app they’ll receive later this month. (Recipients won’t be able to share it until the official release date.)
Samsung paid $5 apiece for the albums, according to a person familiar with the matter. It wasn’t immediately clear if Nielsen SoundScan will count Samsung’s purchases in its sales tallies.
JAY Z’s new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail” comes to Samsung Galaxy fans first. Be among the first million to download the app on June 24th and get the album free July 4th, three days before the rest of the world. Learn more: http://magnacartaholygrail.comRead More
HS87′s frontman super producer and rapper Hit-Boy gives us a sequel to “Jay-Z Interview Pt. 1 (off of the All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of Mixtape released in March)” called “Jay-Z Interview Pt.2.” Hit digs a little deeper into the inspiration behind the song and his ups and downs of being one of the hottest in the game, so much so that he needed two parts to get it all on wax. From the sounds of it, we may be able to expect multiple parts to this track, but only time will tell. To take a listen and see the Childish Major and Hit-Boy production, click above.

As if releasing your album the same days as one of your favorite rappers isn’t enough, J.Cole continues to keep us on our toes for the highly anticipated release of his sophomore album, Born Sinner. Though we’ve been taking a listen to a couple of the tracks off of the new project, the buzz has been swarming around “Let Nas Down,” an emotional ode to how Cole disappointed his favorite rapper when all he wanted to do was be just like him. At his formal listening party in NYC last night, Cole took a few minutes to give us the back-story on the track and his feelings. To peep his explanation click above. To see part two of the video and hear the track “Let Nas Down,” hit the jump! (more…)Read More
