Hip-hop mogul reveals album artwork next to the real deal

Jay-Z's put the aspirations of his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail beyond Reasonable Doubt (ah, come on!) by unveiling its artwork in Salisbury Cathedral, next to one of the four remaining copies of the actual Magna Carta.

It's part of an installation of the cover art that's running until the end of the month, in case you fancy having a quick jaunt to the cathedral - have a look at the picture above (as well as the artwork itself below), and head over to his website to see more images.

In the meantime, have a look at one of the album trailers below, ahead of its release next week, July 9 (unless you have a Samsung phone, in which case it's tomorrow).
