Magna Carta Holy Grail

In 1215 at Runnymede, doo dah, doo dah, the nobles and the King agreed! Oh, da doo dah day! Treble has no sources to confirm whether or not Jay-Z was, in fact, inspired by Lisa Simpson’s Magna Carta mnemonic sing-along, but the hip-hop icon did, in fact, unveil the album cover of his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, next to the actual Magna Carta, on a lectern in Salisbury Cathedral in England. That’s some promo device!

You can see a gallery of images at Jay-Z’s Life and Times blog. And the actual cover art is up above. Magna Carta Holy Grail is out tomorrow, July 4.
