Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" Reviewed By Florida Congressman On Twitter
Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" is reviewed in a series of tweets from Rep. Trey Radel, a Florida Congressman.
Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" has garnered attention from a bevy of media outlets leading up to and since its July 4 release. Today (July 16), Hova's LP was reviewed by an unlikely source when Rep. Trey Radel, a Florida Congressman, provided what he said was a "Totally unqualified review" of Jigga's new release on Twitter.
After a Tweet about Obamacare, Rep. Radel sets his followers up for the review.
Rep. Radel is a Republican and Rap fan who is known for "producing his own remixes of classic songs, which are distributed around his office as 'Beats by Trey,'" according to thehill.com. "Beats by Trey" is likely a play off of Dr. Dre's popular Beats by Dre company, which makes headphones, among other things.
Rep. Radel grew up near Cincinnati and told thehill.com that he found value in Rap because he learned about a new world through the music. "By hearing this, I heard about other parts of the country outside my little box in Ohio," he said to the site. "I heard stories that would explain everything from violence, to gang warfare, to the crack epidemic and issues with law enforcement. This gave me a wider view of the world."
Rep. Radel's review was endorsed by several people on his timeline.
Congressman @TreyRadel just earned himself a follow. Well played, Sir. This is why Twitter will always be better than Facebook.— John Rouleau (@John_Rouleau) July 16, 2013
