Jay-Z's 'Magna Carta Holy Grail': The Best Lyrics From The New Album
Check out the best lines from Jay-Z's surprise album...
It's here! Jay-Z's brand new album Magna Carta Holy Grail is out to the public (well, Samsung users — the album leaked and will be available for purchase July 8th) and it's going viral. Trending all over Twitter, people can't stop talking about Mr. Carter's 12th album, and with good reason: it's a stunning record with so many guest features we can barely handle it (Beyonce! Justin Timberlake! Dare we go on?). We decided to pull the best lyrics from each track off MCHG, and you can see 'em below:
1. Holy Grail (ft. Justin Timberlake)
"One day you here, one day you there, one day you care / You're so unfair sipping from your cup / Till it runneth over, Holy Grail..."
2. Picasso Baby
"What's it gonAnnotatena to take / For me to go / For y'all to see / I'm the modern day Pablo / Picasso baby..."
3. Tom Ford
"I don't pop molly, I rock Tom Ford / International bring back the Concorde / Numbers don't lie, check the scoreboard..."
4. F***WithMeYouKnowIGotIt (ft. Rick Ross)
"Hov just landed in Rome, n**** / All hail, Caesar's home, n****s..."
5. Oceans (ft. Frank Ocean)
"I crash through glaAnnotatess ceilings, I break through closed doors / I'm on the ocean, I'm in heaven / Yachting, Ocean 11..."
"Let's f*** up this world / F*** up the world / Me and destiny got a date..."
"Feds still lurking / They see I'm still putting work in / Cause somewhere in America / Miley Cyrus is still twerkin'..."
"You in the presence of a king / Scratch that, you in the presence of a God..."
"Question religion, question it all / Question existence until them questions are solved..."
"The truth in my verses / Versus / Your metaphors / About what your net worth is..."
11. Part II (On the Run) (ft. Beyonce)
"I don't care if you on the run / Baby as long as I'm next to you / And if loving you is a crime / Tell me why do I bring out / The best in you..."
12. Beach is Better
"Girl why you never ready / For as long as you took / You better look like Halle Berry / Or Beyoncé..."
"Me and Teflon Q45 infinite / Windows tinted / White girl all up in it / Britney, b****..."
14. Jay-Z Blue
"To Blue Ivy my daughter / If it was up to me / You would be with me / Sort of like daddy dearest..."
15. La Familia
"Every n**** real in my clique really / Everyone is a movie star you got to film me / La Familia..."
16. Nickels and Dimes
"Got a thing for nickel plated nines and pretty dimes / Mac-11 I squeeze like lemon limes / Squirt obey your thirst, fashion lines / Between beauty and beast, I walk the line..."
