As the clock struck midnight last night, Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album finally arrived. While we all collectively scrambled to download the record (via Samsung or Sharebeast), the man-of-the-moment celebrated with a release party in his hometown of Brooklyn. Guests at the shindig included Beyoncé, Timbaland, J. Cole, Busta Rhymes and Raekwon, as well as Elliott Wilson, Kevin Liles and Eddie Huang. Needless to say, Magna Carta was spinning all night, and Jay and Bey even danced to the new tunes before celebrating the Fourth of July with fireworks and sparklers.
