Earl Sweatshirt Criticizes Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" Album

Earl Sweatshirt tells fans of Jay-Z's latest album to unfollow him.

It seems not everyone is a fan of Jay-Z's latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.

Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt took to Twitter today to voice his opinion on Hov's project, reminiscent of his fun at the expense of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis several weeks back.

Earl first explained that he wasn't a fan of Jay's work on Justin Timberlake's "Suit and Tie," joining Kanye West in that respect:

Then, Earl went as far as to tell his Twitter followers to unfollow him if they disagreed with his assessment.

Earl went on to suggest that the acclaim that MCHG has garnered is because of Jay'z name, and not the quality of the album:



In a 2012 interview, Jay-Z was complimentary of Earl's Odd Future crew. “[Odd Future has an] aversion to corporate America,” he said. “People have a real aversion to what people in power did to the country. So they’re just lashing out, like: ‘This is the son that you made. Look at your son. Look at what you’ve done.’”

In 2011, Odd Future was reportedly fielding offers from Jay-Z's Roc Nation, before the collective opted for simply a distribution deal with Sony.
