Jay-Z Argued With Kanye West For 4 Days Over "Holy Grail" + "Ocean"
Jay-Z revealed in a four part interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe that he had a four-day argument with Kanye West over two tracks on Magna Carta Holy Grail.
The two went back and forth in 2011 when they were recording “Watch The Throne”.
"We had this whole plan when me and Kanye did [the] 'Watch The Throne' album that we would go right into our solos after that," Jay-Z recalls. "Soon as I thought we had wrapped up 'Watch The Throne', I made two records - I had 'Holy Grail' and 'Oceans'."
Jay-Z went on to say, "[There were] no lyrics on 'Holy Grail' and I recorded 'Oceans' and I played those records for Kanye. And he was like, 'No those have to go on 'Watch The Throne'', so we spent four days arguing about those records and I was explaining to him why it wasn't right for this project and I had a whole idea for making this album called 'Magna Carta'... 'Holy Grail' [part of] the name came after."
Must be nice arguing over great records and which great album it's going to appear on lol.
