Director Anthony Mandler has produced the visuals to Jay Z and Justin Timberlake’s new release “Holy Grail”, which comes from Carter’s twelfth studio album Magna Carta… Holy Grail. The video sees Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, and some cloth-covered women in an abandoned mansion and includes a slightly remixed version of the collaborative track. Prior to this, the American director had frequently collaborated with Rihanna and has produced videos for Eminem, Usher, Drake, M.I.A. and Lana Del Rey, amongst many others.

Most Rappers Are Lying About Their Money

From expensive clothes to gaudy chains and customized rides, wealth has always been a major talking point in the hip-hop community – especially in rap lyrics. As Jay-Z chides on Magna Carta… Holy Grail‘s “Versus” track, “The truth in my verses versus your metaphors about what your net worth is.” Thus, Businessweek recently launched an inside look into hip-hop’s dubious tales of extraordinary wealth. The results confirm Hov’s skepticism of rap’s tried-and-true rags-to-riches narrative – one in which Jay has taken part in the truest sense while others’ claims to a cache of prosperity are, in truth, mostly unrealized.Here, Businessweek hilariously ousts some of the industry’s worst offenders – and most “humble” lyricists – with a telling “Actual Wealth vs. Alleged Wealth” comparison.
