Jay-Z & Kanye West Argued Over Magna Carta Holy Grail Tracks!

Sorry, Kanye.

Jay-Z just isn't having it.

During a recent BBC 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Hova revealed that he and his BFF Yeezy got into a bit of a disagreement over two of his Magna Carta Holy Grail tracks, Holy Grail and Oceans.

Jay explains:

"We had this whole plan when me and Kanye did [the] Watch The Throne album that we would go right into our solos after that… Soon as I thought we had wrapped up Watch The Throne, I made two records - I had Holy Grail and Oceans… [There were] no lyrics on Holy Grail and I recorded Oceans and I played those records for Kanye. And he was like, 'No those have to go on Watch The Throne.’”

Jay then added:

"So we spent four days arguing about those records and I was explaining to him why it wasn't right for this project and I had a whole idea for making this album called Magna Carta… [The] Holy Grail [part of] the name came after."

And boy, are we happy about that?!

If Jay hadn’t stuck to his guns, there’s no telling whether Justin Timberlake and Frank Ocean would have stepped in to team up on their according tracks!

Kanye, sometimes you just have to let things go!

    I've had people predict that my mixtape Zero Features would be better than Magna Carta Holy Grail. Check it out on Hotnewhiphop.com support the underground artist who work hard to produce their art. I produce this entire mixtape by myself mixed and engineer all by me. There are absolutely no features on this project, 31 tracks all unique and dope. #ZeroFeatures not sure anybody I know actually liked any song on Jay-Z's new album don't ask me why. I Haven't even heard it just yet. But according to my sources there are many others I know who have heard the entire album and when I ask them what they thought of it the responses was "I can't remember even listening to it". Can't remember one song I actually thought was dope. #TureStory Google Zero Features. Vote for yourself. #Seriously. I definitely plan on listening to #MCHG now that my project is out. I need to know what I'll think but right now its looking like a landslide victory for me.
