Jay-Z hasn't been lyrically interesting in years but the production on these songs is deeply intriguing.

After Yeesus, Watch the Throne and now this whopper of an album title, this whole overblown ego thing has reached new depths.

And I love it.

I feel like Jay-z has been in coast mode for a while now, but him in coast is better than most other mainstream hiphop acts. Going by the snippets of beats in the commercial for this, it sounds like he has some serious potential bangers on his hands. I cannot wait for this.

Yeezus, Born Sinner, and Magna Carta Holy Grail in a matter of weeks? Regardless of the quality of the work, when was the last time so many big releases came out in such quick succession. Not to mention Drake drops in late August, so this is a pretty big summer for block buster hiphop.

Same here. I tried to use Shazam during a commercial for this but it brought me to a NBA Finals page. The beats were damn good.

Seriously, WTF Samsung? I own a Galaxy S2, I'm still months away from being eligible for an upgrade and I'm not eligible for this app? Thanks a lot! Great customer loyalty there.

Yep, I just hope this wasn't slapped together in a couple months. Would love to hear a killer Jay-Z solo album for a change.

the full thing leaked too. Personal favorite songs are Holy Grail, Tom Ford, SomewhereInAmerica, Beach is Better & BBC.

Some songs are def underwelming (mainly Jay Z Blue and Fuckwithmeyouknowigotit) its a very good album & better than Blueprint 3 for sure

I haven't been able to listen to it on my Galaxy S4. The app never gets past the title screen. Apparently a lot of others are having the same problem. Really disappointing.

Hard to believe it's been a decade since Jay-Z inititlaly announced his retirement, only to backtrack and release Kingdom Come.

He's still one of my favorites, but his last great disc was The Black Album. Everything since then hasn't been able to match the quality, but I did enjoy Blueprint 3 more than most.

Is this getting a physical retail release?

I haven't listened to any of the songs, but are they all edited? Amazon and Best Buy only list a "clean" version of the album for sale.

If you click on the + sign underneath the clean version on Amazon, an explicit version is for sale.

Thanks! It never came up on a search for me so I figured maybe because he released it through the phone they did something about only an edited version.

No problem. I've been watching it to see if the price is going to drop. I've got something against paying $14 for 10 songs that a shitload of people got for free.
