Jay Z Talks Fame, Fatherhood & ‘Infidelity’ On ‘Holy Grail’ / Lyrics Inside!

Fame is the name of Jay Z‘s game this time around, well…at least it is on his forthcoming single ‘Holy Grail‘.

Featuring Justin Timberlake, the song’s lyrics were unveiled to the world when the ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ app went live on Google Play, showcasing a surprisingly vulnerable side to the Rap icon as he battles the cheater that is ‘fame‘, and how it’s affected his relationship with his daughter Blue Ivy Carter.

      The Beyhive are so dumb they’ll probably Jay was talking about an actual person when he said I always take her back.

      • BitchyBey June 24, 2013

        Erm no b****. Grape made it clear that the cheater he was talking about was being famous so only the illiterate navi would think that seeing as Riwhore couldn’t keep a man if her p**** walls depended on it.

      • TruthSpeaker June 24, 2013

  2. Rosie June 24, 2013

    Aww, that’s sweet. Too bad the app won’t count for Billboard.

  3. FAF June 24, 2013

    Interesting. . . I always wonder about the back story about his “Lost Ones” verse where he says “I’on think its meant to be, Bey, cuz she loves her work more than she does me, and honestly, at 23 I would probably love my work more than I did she.” When Beyonce was 23, it was 2004 and she was with DC but they were so secretive, I never knew if they broke up

    • BeyWhoUWanna June 24, 2013

      You are so stupid. They clearly said ‘the cheater that is fame’. He was using a METAPHOR.

      • FAF June 24, 2013

        No dumbass go listen to lost ones I’m not talking about this song, illiterate A**

  4. Lovebird June 24, 2013

    Firstly, that hair on Jay Z is a mess, all that blood money and you cannot use it to get a decent barber.

    Secondly, this semi illiterate dull drug dealer has some nerve talking about fatherhood when he was destroying families and entire communities by selling them drugs.

    This asshole and his egoistic wife should STFU.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 24, 2013

      DEAD! @ the aveeno link. lol, I can’t

    • XXX June 24, 2013

      Shut up you melo dramatic idiot. Semi illiterate? Did you sit his exams for him? And I guess you hate Tupac, Biggie and other iconic rappers aswell since they were all drug dealers at one point.

    • Rosie June 24, 2013

      Still seething over the fact that you can no longer use stadium receipts for Hive/Navy stan wars?

      • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

        Still seething at Lana’s US irrelevancy?

      • Rosie June 24, 2013

        Still seething that Death Jam released the most dated song off of Analpologetic and now it is currently Rih’s biggest flop since Rated R era?

  5. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 24, 2013

    you better, Ningga, Leech!

  6. Anne June 24, 2013

    I thought this was about fame, not Beyonce. The song is metaphorical.

    • FentySoSnatched June 24, 2013

      Yes b****, everyone including TGJ says and sees that except the stupid Hive.

      • Molly June 24, 2013

        Ur dumb the hive isnt even saying that Sam stop starting s***

      • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

        So Fenty is Sam too? KIIIIIII.

      • FentySoSnatched June 24, 2013

        What’s happening? Why am I being mentioned?

  7. RoyalNavi June 24, 2013

    So Beyonce DID cheat on him with Lebron.

  8. Draggin4MrsCarter June 24, 2013

    Reading comprehension is so key. Half of you swear blind you read what they write in the articles but you don’t.

    THE ONLY CHEATER JAY Z WAS TALKING ABOUT IS FAME. NOT BEYONCE! It says it right there in the article.

  9. Kellz June 24, 2013

    So Beyonce cheats wow I knew she was fake but damn bey you wrong

    • Special Delivery June 24, 2013

      And you dumb

      • TruthSpeaker June 24, 2013

        Doesn’t change how wrong Bey is. that ho be fakin album sales with other people’s hit, pregancies with other mommies carrying blue ivy, lyrics with other people’s words and now a marriage with other dudes hittin it? damn she a ho

      • Krissy June 24, 2013

        No fool ^ he is not talking about Beyonce. He is using fame as a metaphor.

  10. Mother Mariah June 24, 2013

    Shes a lieing cheating son of a b****

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 24, 2013

      Shut up child. I know you’re not the real @Mother Mariah.

      • Mother Mariah June 24, 2013

        Ok hun

      • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

        I was about to say that Slayriah. Mother Mariah had a green gravatar and didn’t talk s*** about everyone

  11. XXX June 24, 2013

    Lol people are idiots. Basic comprehention is key. Look up the definition of a metaphor. He is talking about fame not a person.

    • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

      Most of the hive didn’t finish school. The fact that I have to defend their fave for them is just…

      • XXX June 24, 2013

        Im a Hive… You were saying? I only see mariah and rihanna calling Beyonce a cheater. The Hives are saying the opposite.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 24, 2013

        When did Mariah call her a cheater???

      • XXX June 24, 2013

        Mariah and Rihanna fans.

  12. HerNameIsSasha June 24, 2013

    Why are people so dumb. Did you not read the write up or the actual lyrics? He’s talking about fame.

  13. PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

    I’m very sorry but today I have to really say I feel sorry for TGJ that most of their readers are stupid illiterate Beyhive members who didn’t finish grade school. If you took the time to look at what’s there you would see that Hov is talking about being cheated on by fame and money, not Beyonce.
    Sam even said it said himself when he said that FAME IS THE CHEATER. I can’t believe i waste so much time everyday fighting with people as stupid as the hive. Like really.

    • XXX June 24, 2013

      Um you are the idiot because its the BEYHIVE that are correcting people in this post. The other fans are acting dumb #TryAgain

      • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

        B****, I just saw David have to explain what they meant to one of the Foolhives on twitter because they were too dumb to get it. So sit.

      • XXX June 24, 2013

        Oh. One Hive? How does that equal al of them are illiterate?

      • XXX June 24, 2013


    • Molly June 24, 2013

      I think this is Sam trying start s*** because the hive isn’t even in here saying that your the rihtarded one

    • XXX June 24, 2013

      I mean really, can you not read properly? Why would the Hive be calling Beyonce a cheater? The only one that sounds dumb is you.

      • Molly June 24, 2013

        Its obviously Sam hiding under a Rihanna name so the hive can drag rih its obvious why would the hive call be a cheater thats what the Rihanna stans would say cmon Sam be more clever you dumb troll

      • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

        Scroll down to the bottom of the page and look at what the foolhives are tweeting Sam.

      • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

        Wait? So i’m sam?

      • PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

        Yes b******, you better mind out I don’t delete your comments cos I’m Sam.

      • XXX June 24, 2013

        Yes and so are your fellow Navy members so I guess they are illiterate?

  14. HerNameIsSasha June 24, 2013

    The Navi are still mad the Queen is on the best tours chart every week and Rihanna is not. Teuh bud!

  15. Molly June 24, 2013

    So many dumb f**** on here…. The school system has FAILED you all.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 24, 2013

      But Mariah is still the queen though…

      • Draggin4MrsCarter June 24, 2013

        The Queen of Porkys that is.

  16. PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

    Hey Y’alll. The Flophive are saying i’m Sam because I dragged their illiterate asses. Call me when your fave can get a number one single b******.

    • RoyalNavi June 24, 2013


    • XXX June 24, 2013

      Aw is that the best you got? But seriously though can you not read the comments.

  17. TaylorWins June 24, 2013

    I just got home from class and all I see is confusion. What’s going on?

  18. Rosie June 24, 2013

    So many illiterate navy f**** on this post. Even if you didn’t read the lyrics the post clearly said that the cheater was fame, not Beyonce.

    • XXX June 24, 2013

      Ikr and then they dont even have the comprehention skills to identify its them making the dumb comments and not actually the Hive.

  19. TaylorSwift1Stan June 24, 2013

    Uhmm I’m a huge Jay Z fan BTW not because of thiefyonce. I’m just attracted to him. I don’t really like black guys but he will get it.
    We know who cheated he f***** Rihoenna, I don’t think thiefyonce is that type of person.
    MÓoriah fans shouldn’t be talking your fave is DEAD.

  20. TaylorSwift1Stan June 24, 2013

    Why are Mariah stans so bitter and angry and so insecure they’re even worser than the Littlemonsters? They’re so pressed. Its not our fault that mariah is a flopping P** with HUGE cheeks ewww

    • TruthSpeaker June 24, 2013

      there is so much grammatically wrong with this response that my brain just closed my eyes and told me move on-NOW…

    • TruthSpeaker June 24, 2013

  21. Bey Fan June 24, 2013

    SMH…. stay in school

  22. Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

    What the hell @ everyone pointing fingers calling each other illiterate. Lmao! I can’t! 😆

  23. Bunmi June 24, 2013

    The Holy Grail is the power of Woman, of the Goddess in every Woman. Grail is the woman’s womb, her yoni, her v*****, her sacred space where men are devoured and redeemed, children formed and released. Jay-Z’s Holy Grail Beyonce is an embodiment of Mary Magdalene, wife of Jesus.
    In the old days they called Mary Magdalene the Holy Grail to disguise that her v*****/womb was the “House” of Jesus, as He was her Husband and the father of Her child. Jay-Z now has Blue Ivy with Beyonce so he has conquered, possessed, and filled his Holy Grail from which the girl-child to be Womban/Goddess was born, Blue Ivy Carter. Believe this. Beyonce is Magdalene, is Oshun. Learn more at beyonceisnotatragimulatto.tumb¬lr.com and theoshunlife.yolasite.com

    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      Ummmm I’m not the most religious person, but since when was Mary, Jesus’ wife? He wasn’t married! He was a bachelor! Wasn’t that his mom? And wasn’t she pregnant by the Holy Spirit? So jay-Z is the Holy Ghost? Niiiiceeeee!!!

      • Krissy June 24, 2013

        The Holy Grail, based on the Da Vinci code, Mary was Jesus wife.

  24. NΛVI June 24, 2013

    Smh, the hood hive needs to stay in school, reading is fundamental. You should see twitter, mess! Those illiterate f.ucks.

    • Rosie June 24, 2013

      Not a Navy member calling someone illiterate. That’s like a basic requirement for your stanbase.

  25. Special Delivery June 24, 2013

    Bwahaha this post is funny the Navy is so dumb. The fact they are calling Hive illiterate yet saying the same thing. I f****** cant.

  26. TaylorSwift1Stan June 24, 2013

    Slayriah is the illiterate and uneducated one here. The Piggy fans are stupid and dumb.

  27. Special Delivery June 24, 2013

    Lets just say… Those particular individuals are not using their common sense because clearly majority of people know its a metaphor.

  28. Ecstasy June 24, 2013

      • S****** Blonde June 24, 2013

        Don’t worry, i’m on vacation so the chances of losing my time on Beyonce are few, maybe with other celebrities but not with her, enjoy your Beyonce’s week.

  33. Krissy June 24, 2013
