LOS ANGELES — Jay-Z fanatics finally have Hov's [article id="1709115"]Magna Carta Holy Grail[/article] in their hands, but a few lucky ones close to the star rapper got an advanced listen.
"It's incredible," gushed Roc Nation singer Bridget Kelly when she walked down the red carpet at the [article id="1709115"]2013 BET Awards[/article] in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Kelly is getting set to drop her debut album Something Different later this year and her current single "Street Dreamin' " features Kendrick Lamar. What Kelly also has is some pretty cool inspiration from her Roc Nation boss and his unique Magna Carta roll-out. "[He's] changing the game," she said of Jay. "He is a marketing genius, but he's also really convicted in what he wants and I respect that about him. He's an artist. Apart from being a businessman, he's an artist, so he knows exactly what he wants to present, what image he wants to be a part of his name and I think that's really dope."
On Wednesday, Jay dropped the artsy album cover for MCHG, which is now situated at the Salisbury Cathedral alongside the Magna Carta itself. "We know how important Magna Carta, and all it represents, is to people across the globe. The ideals it embodies are still relevant today. Jay Z, through his album, is creating a huge awareness of this historic document and its modern significance to a huge audience in the run up to its 800th anniversary in 2015. We hope to welcome many of his fans here this summer to see the artwork in the Chapter House alongside our Magna Carta."The Dean of Salisbury, the Very Reverend June Osborne, said.
