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. Jay-Z clearly has it as he’s stated time and time again in his record with Rick Ross “F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.”
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.

Halloween is just around the corner and you know what that means: an abundance of promiscuous costumes! At some point over the course of our lives, our generation decided to transition Halloween from a holiday that was all about collectin...
Toothpaste has pretty much tasted the same for years now. Of course, brands like Crest and Colgate have tried to shake the market up a bit with cinnamon and bubble gum-flavored toothpastes, but, over time, those became pretty basic, too. That’s why Japan is stepping in to create wasabi toothpaste. According to Time, Japanese retailer Village Vanguard […]
We’ve seen it all. We’ve seen THC-infused chocolates, THC-infused pizza and even THC-infused grilled cheese sandwiches. What we haven’t seen, until now, is this insane all-in-one “beer shotgun, gravity pipe and water pipe” device brilliantly named The Knockout. It’s everything you could wish for in a drinking and smoking device. If you’re one of those fearless […]
Good news! Transformers might be on their way to actually existing beyond the motion picture series! Japanese inventors have figured out a way to create a robot that transforms itself from a small car into a decently-sized Transformer replica. It’s called the “J-deite quarter” and it’s pretty awesome to see in action! According to Daily Mail, […]

It has finally happened. Someone created a shot glass that holds both your shot and your chaser. The glass is appropriately named the Snapshotr and there’s a big chance it’s better than any shot glass you’ve collected so far. It’s simple — all you have to do is load up your alcohol and your chaser, […]
A Chinese boy had his arm bitten off by a bear as he tried to pet it at the zoo. The 9-year-old was at Hebin Park Zoo in Henan province when he climbed over the safety rail while his grandfather was away buying candy, Daily Mail reports. The boy got close enough to reach through […]
Paraphrasing Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman, economic freedom eventually leads to the pursuit of political/civil freedom. This is very clear now, given what’s happening in Hong Kong. With protests that have spanned more than a week, the people of Hong Kong want to claim the freedom — their innate right — to choose their chief executive […]
There are no words in the English language descriptive enough to accurately explain how f*cking cute this video of a baby bulldog is. The pup stumbles around on its squishy little paws, not quite sure how to use them yet, and attempts to howl like the grown-up dogs do. The video was originally posted by […]
College is different than the real world in many ways. It was a bubble; you were able to act, dress and live in a way deemed unacceptable in the “real world.” It was a time of beer bongs, keg stands and crop tops. It’s when Sundays were for nursing hangovers and handles of vodka were […]
You’re about to lose all faith in the world (if you haven’t already). Apparently, a 22-year-old Adolf Hitler is the newest person to download Tinder. Really? No, but someone is definitely posing as the dictator. You can’t help but gasp in horror and disbelief and feel the sheer uncomfortableness after reading his tagline: The Final […]
