As a teaser for Jay-Z‘s upcoming album, Magna Carta Holy GrailSamsung released three short videos in which Jay-Z describes the inspiration behind some of his new songs. From “Heaven,” to “Oceans,” to “Holy Grail,” Hov breaks down to Rick Rubin, Pharell, and Timbaland his emotions and reasons behind each piece.

When watching these short clips, I couldn’t help but find humor in what Jay-Z was saying.
