SNL comedian Jay Pharaoh did his well-known Jay-Z impersonation pitching Roc Nation Sports on last night’s ESPYS. We’re sure Samsung appreciated the plug. Yea Puff, we didn’t think it was funny either.
In Jay’s recent interview with Zane Lowe, he explained a brief fallout between him and Timbo after Blueprint 3. In Revolt’s new clip, Tim speaks on the subject and says he’s written an apology verse.
Numbers don’t lie—or do they? Despite Billboard not counting Jay-Z’s million seller, the tangible edition of Magna Carta Holy Grail has sold approximately 528,208 copies. If the number holds up, this will mark Hov’s 13th number one album. Watch out Paul, John, George, and Ringo; he’s on your ass. Pause. Final tally tomorrow. UPDATE: 527,000 copies sold. Oh, what a feeling!
