Jay-Z Announces "Magna Carta" European Tour

Jay-Z will hit Europe on the "Magna Carta" tour in support of his recently released "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album.

Jay-Z has announced a European headlining tour in support of his Magna Carta Holy Grail album, according to hiphop-n-more.com. The "Magna Carta" tour is slated to begin October 3 at the Manchester Arena in the Manchester, UK and conclude October 29 at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands, as per the site.

Jay-Z also notched his first #1 album in the UK with Magna Carta Holy Grail today (July 15), according to hiphop-n-more.com.

During a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, Jay-Z said that he and Kanye West argued about on which album the songs "Oceans" and "Holy Grail" would appear. "[There were] no lyrics on 'Holy Grail' and I recorded 'Oceans' and I played those records for Kanye,” Jay-Z says. “And he was like, 'No those have to go on Watch the Throne,' so we spent four days arguing about those records and I was explaining to him why it wasn't right for this project and I had a whole idea for making this album called Magna Carta...[the] Holy Grail [part of] the name came after."

Both "Oceans" and "Holy Grail" ended up on Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail album.

    Stay there. Here in Europe we listen to techno not that FAKE immature gangsta rap talking about being a pimp and hustler and kill people. Hiphop is nothing more then negativity. In the techno scene artist dont fight or kill eachother. And dont start techno is gay or whatever. We just wanna have fun.

    I personally would not want to watch Jay-Z perform. His blend of POP and R&B is not more my taste. I much prefer to listen to real gangsta's like Wayne and Rick Ross perform. However, I'm happy that Jay is getting some much-needed cash. Birdman showed me Jay's finances recently (don't ask me how he got them) and I can confirm that Jay-Z has transferred almost all of his liquid money to Beyonce. He still owns a few illiquid assets, but those are not performing well, and don't generate enough cash to support his lifestyle. If he sold them now, it would be at a significant loss. If Jay-Z can avoid turning over money from this tour to his wife, he may be set for a year or so. Otherwise, he will have to release a new album with Kanye to make ends meet.
