Despite several publications putting out the black and white MCHG image as the official cover for JAY Z‘s twelfth studio album Magna Carta Holy Grail, today the Roc Nation boss unveiled the official cover (pictured above) at The Salisbury Cathedral in the UK.
“Located in the United Kingdom, The Salisbury Cathedral, home to one of the four surviving original 1215 Magna Carta documents, has become the site which debuted JAY Z’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail album cover art.
The installation will be on display at the Salisbury Cathedral Chapter House through the month of July. See the installation below.”
JAY Z wasn’t playing when he said the Magna Carta Holy Grail was about writing new rules. Following the announcement that the Hip Hop veteran and icon was set to release his latest long player on July 4th via an app on Samsung Galaxy phones and devices to a million people ahead of the full release three days later, he has convinced the RIAA to change the riles covering Gold and Platinum certification ahead of its release as well. Now thats power!
