First came the Lemonade, and then over a year later we finally have the tea. Jay-Z’s 13th studio album 4:44 was released last night, and it’s a dark night of the soul for the rapper as he reflects on his troubled childhood, his wealth, being a black man in America, and the mess he has made of his personal life. Specifically, his infidelities to The Beyoncé, the Solange elevator fight, and his troubled relationship with one-time bestie Kanye West. Before we sip on this arnold palmer together, it’s worth mentioning that musically this album is one of the most interesting things Jay-Z has done in years. It’s got this gorgeous J Dilla-style production, and lyrically this high stakes personal shit has really given him something to sink his teeth into as opposed to just listing off watch and car brands we’re too poor to recognize. Magna Carta it is not.
