For about seven hours on Monday (July 8), Jay-Z pulled off a Twitter takeover. Unlike the structured, much-publicized rollout of Magna Carta Holy Grail, Hov’s Twitter Q&A began without warning and had an arbitrary endpoint. He was in a particularly jocular mood, joking with fans and haters alike, but he also managed to offer up some pretty interesting bits of news and opinion — everything from candid thoughts on his own discography to his favorite methods of carb intake.
While a lot of the MCHG details were enlightening (for instance: “Open Letter” was left off because he’s releasing it on vinyl through Jack White‘s Third Man Records, and Frank Ocean collab “Oceans” is two years old), it was the more random stuff that really grabbed us (such as his thoughts on Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus).
But if you missed out on the action because you were, ya know, doing your job or attending class like a productive member of society, don’t worry! Idolator compiled the important lessons from Jay-Z’s Twitter marathon, including:
Favorite Album – Reasonable Doubt
Favorite Britney Spears song – “Toxic”
Favorite Movie – Godfather 2
