Jay-Z Goes Into Twitter Tantrum

Posted By on June 17, 2013

Jay-Z has never been one to be very active on social media. However, a day after his “Magna Carta Holy Grail” commercial aired during the NBA Finals, HOV let his feelings be known via Twitter.


Below are the tweets in which Jay addressed today’s music, his new album, and more:







Accoriding to The Wall Street Journal, the whole “new rules” theme seems to allude to Jay’s new album and his marketing plan behind it:

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.”
