2-LP. 180-Gram. Tip-on Style Gatefold Sleeve. The LP also includes a limited edition flexi-disc postcard of exclusive non-album track Open Letter hidden under the artwork on the back cover. Already platinum. Impeccable design. Although this is one of the more talked about records of his career, there s no doubt that this is a testament to JAY Z s diligence, entrepreneurship, and artistic vision. Picking up where Watch The Throne left off, Magna Carta Holy Grail is JAY Z s twelfth studio album, and a portrait of an emcee embracing fatherhood, marriage, and striking a balance between a past spent coming up and a future shuffling around the top.
