Jay-Z is making sure fans — and random Samsung users — can sing along to all the tracks on Magna Carta Holy Grail by leaking their lyrics prior to its July 4 release date. Today we were treated to “Tom Ford”, “Beach Is Best” and “La Familia”. The first song would appear to be a straight forward boast. Hov brags about his expensive lifestyle, rapping “I rock Tom Ford, international bring back the concorde.”
The lyrics to “Beach Is Best” are more obtuse but the song appears to be addressed to a commitment-phobic woman. The line “Girl why you never ready? For as look as you took, you better look like Halle Berry” is particularly cute. Perhaps the most controversial new track is “La Familia”, which has been interpreted as a jab at Lil’ Wayne.
The lyric “Ni**a wanna kidnap wifey, good luck with that bruh. You must gonna hide your whole family” is a thinly-veiled response to Weezy’s 2011 song “I’m Good” from Tha Carter IV. In it he raps: “Kidnap your bi**h, get that how much you love your lady money.” Jay-Z obviously was not impressed. Read all of his new lyrics after the jump.
