Jay-Z continues to build the anticipation by releasing lyrics for tracks off his 12th album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail”.
Jay has released 3 pages of lyrics for “Picasso Baby”, “Crown”, & “F.U.T.W.”
On “Crown,” Hov takes a few shots at the sports world & former agent of the New York Yankeess second baseman Robinson Cano Scott Boras, whomJay-Z signed to Roc Nation sports this past spring, Scott Boras. The lyrics also include the line, “It’s a new day, hit up KD.” “KD” is likely a reference to Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder forward whom Jay-Z signed to Roc Nation Sports as well.
“Picasso Baby” talks about Jay’s lavish lifestyle & how he just wants to live life “colossal.”
“F.U.T.W.” discusses Jay-Z’s rise from poverty to success. He also includes some politically-charged lyrics, including the lines, “America tried to emasculate the greats / Murder Malcolm / Gave Cassius the shakes.”
