Jay-Z, the Grownup

Recently, Jay-Z released Magna Carta Holy Grail, which received pretty mediocre reviews. The album has its flaws, but for my Culture Club column at Playboy, I examine how the record is the artist's attempt to grapple with adulthood, a subject that mainstream hip-hop is just now embracing. You can read the piece here.

(Also, yes, I'm refusing to call him Jay Z. I like the damn hyphen.)
