For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past two weeks, Jay-Z just dropped a new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is the rapper’s twelfth studio album.
The official release date for the physical copy is July 9, but digital copies were available for pretty much anyone with a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone starting on July 4. By now, you’ve probably heard the album and if you have, you’ll notice that Hov is flashier than ever.
From Basquiat and Picasso art talk, to slick lines about how rocking a Tom Ford suit is way better than popping molly, Jay-Z has really taken it upon himself to show us all exactly what the good life is truly all about.

Don’t worry, though, you can have it too. You might already have it — whatever “it” is. Here are the 15 ways you know you got it according to Magna Carta Holy Grail.
