-So this seems to be the song Courtney Love was referring to that uses elements of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. The fact that its most likely Justin Timberlake that sings the lines “And Were All Just/Entertainers/ And Were stupid/And contagious ” , little bit cringe inducing potentially, no?
– As first spoken about here at GSF, The Dream confirms his involvment on the Magna Carta Holy Grail, specifically on the song Holy Grail
Yes of course wrote the hook and Track for Holy Grail it’s not a Secret stop hatin. Crédit Check. Team Effort! La Familia Timbo,No I’D.

This is interesting in that Dream had stated that he worked on a song during the time of Watch The Throne that would be on Jay-Z next project, so this begs the question has Hov been sitting on this whole Holy Grail concept for over a year now?
Here is a new clip from Samsung promoting Jay-Z Magna Carta Holy Grail album. In the 30 second spot we have Jay-Z and Timbaland talking about “hey we should do 4 more songs, since we got the time”. In the background you hear what has to be a Neptunes beat, later in the commercial a trippy, synthy beat is played and Timbaland is seemingly the producer.
You hyped for this album yet?, I know I am!
Also kind of interesting, Industry Insiders are predicting first week sales of 400-450k, which would put it ahead of what Yeezus’s 1st week numbers are said to be (final #’s will be available soon). However those same insiders had Yeezus debuting with 500k , so who knows.
Magna Carta Holy Grail due out July 4th via app, 72 hrs later to the public. Will it leak before the 4th is the real question?
