BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe Speaks with Jay-Z About ‘Magna Carta… Holy Grail’ – Part 4
Magna Carta… Holy Grail isn’t your typical Jay-Z album. In a lot of ways, it’s the album he was supposed to make at this particular juncture, at a time when something greater than himself has affected his work in a myriad of subtle ways. Of course, we’re talking about Blue Ivy Carter, the newborn successor to the Carter throne – she who has been the subject of much speculation and was finally addressed in her father’s art upon MCHG‘s release. It makes sense that family would be the subject of the final installment of Zane Lowe‘s fascinating four-part interview with Hov, given that the artist now looks toward a future – one that will stand dependently on the legacy he’s worked for so many years to create. Take a minute to absorb Hov’s wisdom, without complex wordplay or obscure references, in the above interview.
