JAY Z "HOLY GRAIL"-SOMETIMES............
This cut is cool (streets & Mixtapes). This song is for cool Jay Z fans (the Justin Timberlake combo was smart #WhatsUpChurbanRadio #LMAO). Sometimes when you've been on top for so long, you're expected to hit a homerun everytime. Jay is in this position. We should just appreciate that this is a good song. Here the stats

THE PERFORMANCE- 4($$$$) Jay & Justin make's this track work
MUSCLE- 3($$$) Its going to interesting to see what the streets do with this. Dance or think, hmmmm........
JUICE- 3($$$) Also radio's reaction is going to be intersting. Does this song really fit anyones format? Radio will still play this also.
