Jay-Z has spoken about an argument that he had with Kanye West about songs on his new album.
The rapper said that his pal, Yeezy, wanted his tracks “Holy Grail” and “Oceans” to be on their 2011 record, Watch the Throne, instead of his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.
“Soon as I thought we had wrapped up Watch the Throne, I made two records-I had Holy Grail and Oceans,” Jay-Z said. “[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.’”
“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 Magna Carta…[The] Holy Grail [part of] the name came after.”
Magna Carta Holy Grail has become Jay-Z’s first number one in the UK this weekend and is expected to top the Billboard 200 chart later this week.
