Usually, when it is a conversation about Jay-Z with 50 Cent talking, there is some type of insult. With Jay-Z setting the record, going platinum in one day with Magna Carta Holy Grail, surely 50 Cent had something negative to say. Guess again, 50 Cent is a visionary just like Jay-Z is and he liked the direction Jay-Z took.
Along with his album, Jay-Z partnered with Samsung, so the Magna Carta Holy Grail album came as an app. Thus far, Magna Carta Holy Grail has been a well-received album. Jay-Z broke the record because Samsung purchased 1 million copies of his album upfront.
This evening, 50 Cent sat down with MTV News and he talked about the innovative business move Jay-Z pulled off. Surprising most, 50 Cent praised the direction Jay-Z took for Magna Carta Holy Grail. Dating back as far as 2007, 50 Cent spoke of a digital revolution in hip hop.
