Yesterday there was mass hysteria worldwide folks after Jay-Z in partnership with Samsung Galaxy released his “highly anticipated” new album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’. Now whenever Jay-Z releases a new album his admirers cannot wait to gush all over it and then go on to proclaim that it’s the greatest piece of work since Thriller. But yesterday’s reaction to his latest album release was just insane. This was next level hero-worship. The way people were behaving, anyone would have thought that Jesus Christ […]

Former Marcy Projects waste man Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z treats fans to a behind the scenes look at the creation of his Barclays Center opening shows, which took place earlier this year. For Jay-Z hero worshippers this documentary is probably up there with watching the late great Michael Jackson working behind the scenes preparing for his legendary BAD concerts. But for individuals like myself this documentary is duller than dirty dish water. Same old Jay *yawn*.

Global Grind’s Sharon Carpenter caught up with Dame at his gallery space to talk about everything from how age has changed his pursuits and where his relationship stands with Jay-Z. *There is no relationship with Jay-Z* … Damon Dash really is a shadow of his former self. This is what happens kids when you allow fame, fortune and power to go to your head, start to believe your own hype and verbally abuse people on a daily basis for sport. You end […]

Musicians mixing it up with politicians and performing at their campaign events is a highly amusing sight. It’s all so showbizzy. Check out former Marcy Projects waste man turned rapper, turned mogul, turned close friend to politicians Jay-Z, performing the track 99 Problems at President Obama’s last campaign event before America decides who sits in the Oval Office tomorrow. …. *cringe* And while Jigga performed his wife Beyonce was busy at home instructing one of her minions to devise/write an ‘open letter’ to the President. Hahahahaha. Jigga, 99 Problems, Springsteen, gushing open letters […]

It’s the title of the song!” The unfortunate song […]
