Jay-Z’s new album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ is a massive data mining operation

Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail is not so much an album as a co-branded multimedia content delivery platform, Presented By Samsung™ Galaxy™.

He announced it, after all, during an epic commercial for the phone, and Samsung is giving away a million copies to people who download a special app by July 4th. But now another, more unsettling use for the new album has become clear: It’s a massive data-mining operation. Fans used to obsess over album liner notes; now they freak out about terms-of-service.

Occupy-supporting Atlanta rapper Killer Mike noted on Twitter yesterday that when he tried to download the Magna Carta app—which has racked up more than a half million downloads, according to Billboard—it requested some oddly intrusive permissions from your Android phone. Why does Jay-Z need your GPS location? Is he going to cruise by on a platinum-coated jet ski, personally chucking out copies of the album to people who downloaded the app?

What the NSA needs to do, clearly, is start giving away Jay-Z albums. People will be lining up to turn their metadata over.

  1. If you want to live in a free society, and not be exterminated by electromagnetic radiation, you have only to place your plastic cell toy on the floor and stomp on it. Then burn down the FCC and EPA for lying to you about the safety of these devices. You assholes have no idea how destructive the EM cell tower radiation is, because you’re too busy fondling your silly plastic toys, and talking bullshit. There are over 4000 scientific studies condemning the cell phone wi-fi systems, because they cause behavioral addictions, neurological destruction, and cancer.
    Here is only one page of thousands of opinions concerning EM radiation, and the extermination of your planet. http://electromagnetichealth.org/quotes-from-experts/
