Jay-Z To Perform For a New York Audience July 8th
Over the past couple of days rumours have been floating around of Jay-Z staging a concert in New York to market his forthcoming Magna Carter Holy Grail album.
Turns out the rumours are proving to indeed be accurate as Mayor Bloomberg has given Hova the go ahead to perform July 8th atop the Ed Sullivan Theater.
With a major marketing push behind the upcoming project, subtle releases of content from the album, and a heavily apparent backing by
Samsung; the concert should definitely serve as the affair you’d expect from Jay-Z.
