Every Person, Place, and Thing on Magna Carta Holy Grail: A Checklist


If while listening to Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, you experienced an indescribable sensation that you were actually listening to an encrypted invitation to a very luxurious party with a super exclusive guest list and even more ridiculous gift wish list, you were right!!!

(MC) Hammer, (Mike) Tyson, Blue (Ivy), Jeff Koons, Ricardo Tisci Givenchy, Tom Ford, Robert De Niro, Jack Black, Luciano, Pablo and Popeye, Shepard Fairey, Cassius Clay, Spike Lee, Bun B, Miley Cyrus, Scott Boras, Robinson Cano, Halle Berry, Beyonce, Pharrell, Britney, bitch (Spears), Stevie Wonder, Mr. (Harry) Belafonte, Magic (Johnson), Kareem, Chief Keef, (President Barack) Obama, and Bob Dylan.

Jay-Z is a family man above all else, making sure that his daughter Blue Ivy and his wife Beyonce made the guest list to a party held in his honor. Although his reference to famous outsized artist Jeff Koons should be enough of a hint, he is also a big fan of celebrities who have made themselves into ridiculous caricatures: Jack Black, Mike Tyson, Spike Lee, Miley Cyrus, Obama, etc. Jay-Z wants to spend his retirement party around family and people he is glad are not in his family.

The list of dead celebrities and cultural giants Jay-Z mentions are so diverse they literally span from Jesus to Muhammad and Biggie to 2Pac. If Jay-Z is interested in world peace and a career in politics, it seems he could pull it off.


The Shit List: Evil Corporations and Institutions Mentioned on MCHG

The IRS, BP, the Illuminati, and the FBI.
