Killer Mike Says

After seeing the Samsung app's permission settings, Killer Mike says "Nah" to downloading Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" app.

Killer Mike appears to have an issue with downloading Jay-Z's highly anticipated album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The Run the Jewels emcee tweeted about this yesterday (July 1), letting followers know that he wouldn't be downloading Jay's album. Attaching a picture of the Magna Carta Holy Grail Samsung app's permission settings to his tweet, Killer Mike said, "Nah, I'm good" to the download.  

As noted, the image showcases the app's permission settings. The Holy Grail app requires permission to users' storage, system tools, location, network communities, phone calls and more. When asked by a fan if this was a real image, Killer Mike confirmed. Below is Mike's original tweet on the matter. 

Killer Mike has collaborated with and complimented Jay-Z in the past. He was a guest on The Blueprint 2's "Poppin' Tags." They also appeared together on Outkast's "Flip Flop Rock." In 2011, Killer Mike told XXL that Jay-Z was his "favorite rapper." “Everybody that knows me, knows that my favorite rapper, in terms of who I feel that has pushed the culture, is Jay,” he said, before adding more complimentary statements. “Truthfully he’s my favorite rapper. I just think Jay is an incredible human being. And when I say Jay-Z, I have to qualify that I’m talking about the franchise for Roc-A-Fella. I like the new Jay-Z, he’s dope. But I was inspired by the crew called Roc-A-Fella.”

    The phone call thing seems odd. Read my book it will be free tomorrow: How to be an Uncle Tom

    These are requirements for most social apps though. He probably had to do the same for the twitter app. Regardless he'll most likely buy the album in stores.

      >These are requirements for most social apps though. He probably had to do the same for the twitter app. Regardless he'll most likely buy the album in stores. that's fine but what is this app? is it a social network app? because if it's not then it shouldn't need that many permissions.

    I wonder if half the users on here know anything about the huge NSA scandal in the United States. No reason for a music app to have access to anything.

    • Imho

      STOP begging so damn much fam! Nas didn't have to beg. J.cole didn't have beg. Joe budden didn't have to beg. Eminem didn't have to beg. Their music was so great people had no choice but to listen to them. You must do the same.
    • JO Carol
      LOL, Joe Budden? Budden is wack, and btw Cole had to beg for Jay to sign him, but yeah man no one cares on DX sorry.
  • ml
    It was a tweet. You all are putting way too much thought into it. He has other apps (I've seen his phone before lol) he knows that its not actually gonna spy on him or some shit. His point is that you shouldn't have to agree to all that shit just to get someones music. Its more of a general criticism of the format of the album release.

    As an accountant for YMCMB, i can confirm Jay Z wouldn't be here today if Biggie was still alive. While Pac and Biggie were doin there thing in the 90's, Nas was right there with them with a classic album to back him. Jay was more like a sidekick. Nas solidified his spot in the game while the greats were here, Jay "solidified" his spot in the game after Biggie died, along with all the rhymes Jay Z stole from Biggie. There are only a couple of real kings in the game, and just because your bank account is overweight doesn't make you a legend in the game. Jay doesn't set trends, he just follows what's hot.
    • truth
      This post is wack & you being an account holds no weight on what you are speaking on. Nobody was going to hold Jay back. You suck bro.

    Yall are sheep man. Killer Mike may not be anywhere near as famous but he's a real dude speaking his mind. I didn't know being a rapper meant you couldn't speak your mind or let people know how one feels about something.
    • Dentaldamboy
      As an accountant for YMCMB, i can confirm that jay z is such a fucking sell out. blueprint 3 was the nail in the coffin, this nigga would drop a collabo album with beiber if it kept him hot. i never seen a nigga hold on like this. writing articles for bullshit rolling stone, a publication that has tried to destroy hip hop on several occasions. not only is jay begging for acceptance, his music is shit now. mr. knowles. mr carter. bitch ass nigga. self praise is no praise at all. a king doesnt crown himself, a king is crowned by the people. bitch ass nigga jay z, sucking up to the media since 98. YMCMB!

    I've heard the dude rap, dickhead, and I gotta say I'm not impressed. Plus I think his politics are suspect.
